External Reviews for Wild Turkey Rare Breed Bourbon
Wild Turkey Rare Breed is a "barrel-proof bourbon," meaning it is bottled directly from a variety of barrels at the proof it reaches in those barrels, with no added water to lower the proof or dilute the flavor.
This bourbon is a unique marriage of Wild Turkey 6-, 8- and 12-year-old stocks, which give the whiskey a rich, exceptional flavor that is remarkably smooth, considering its high alcohol content. It is assertive with hints of light oranges, mint, and tones of sweet tobacco that will remind you of your grandfather's pipe-bowl.

This is a barrel proof (i.e. non-diluted) blend of 6, 8 and 12 year stocks. Smooth despite its high proof, with rich orange spice and nutty flavors with wafts of sweet pipe tobacco woven in throughout, ending in a creamy finish and a slight punctuation of hot pepper. The Mohamed Ali of bourbons, this is elegance and power at once.
