Wild Turkey "Rare Breed" Small Batch Barrel Proof Bourbon (750ml)

SKU #1037253 90 points Whisky Advocate

Outer quote mark Cotton candy, marshmallows roasting over an open campfire, baked apples, and cornbread batter start a whiskey that then offers hints of caramel apples, pumpkin pie, and roasted pecans. Water opens it up to more nuanced fruit, spice, and sweetness. Without water, brown-sugar butter dominates about mid-palate and leads to a long finish. Dilution makes this a completely different whiskey experience. (FM, Fall 2017) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

Wild Turkey Rare Breed is a high proof marriage of casks that brings more power and spice than some of the other more mellow WT expressions. It's woodier with more of the charred oak influence, but it handles that oak quite well. The finish leans more towards the herbaceous, but if you hang on until the end there's a lovely toffee and caramel note that sings a late swan song. Very fun whiskey that goes down way to easily. 93 points from the Beverage Testing Institute: "Copper color. Dense aromas of coconut, caramel, cherry, and glued wood with a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium-full body and a long, hot, dried fruit, anise, spiced nut, cocoa and white pepper driven. A little water rounds this out brilliantly and brings out a lot of nut and wood tones." (tasted on May 23, 2013)
