Most bourbon whiskies have water added before bottling to reduce the alcohol content and subsequent burn when drinking. Wild Turkey Rare Breed does not bother with that -- it goes straight from the barrel into the bottle. It is described as a “barrel-proof".

In this case the strength (proof) of the barrel is 108.2 (ABV 54.1%). The bourbon used is a blend of six, eight and 12 year olds. This variety allows master distiller Jimmy Russell to get the precise flavour he is after.

The distillery describes Wild Turkey Rare Breed as “assertive”. Given the alcohol content that is an understatement. But do not let that put you off as it is also surprisingly smooth for such a strong bourbon whisky. It is hearty and deep with hints of spice in the well balanced taste.

This is not a bourbon whisky for “tyre-kickers”. You know the type -- fakers, dreamers and liars. The pretentious should also stay away. Again, you know the type: those who talk about tasting vanilla, tobacco, molasses, caramel or chocolate when drinking bourbon whisky.

Wild Turkey Rare Breed is simply a strong, beautifully crafted, delicious sipping bourbon. More...
