I really don't like this stuff! I like my whiskey neat..adding water to this stuff makes it ok, but there are plenty of other bottles to try first.....like Weller, Jefferson, Eagle Rare and I could go on and on. Maybe I just don't like Wild Turkey!

WINNER OF ALL OUR TASTE TEST
Rare Breed is at the top of the list. Three buddies and I have gotten into drinking bourbon over the last few years. We get together 3 or 4 times per month and have done all sorts of taste test. Some have even been blind taste test. We have tried all the so call "high end" bourbons, the commercial favorites, and even Kirkland Brand from Costco. It is amazing to us that we seem to always find "Rare Breed" as the winner, especially when you consider it is 108 proof. My hat is off to Jimmy Russell and all the folks at Wild Turkey Distillery for producing such a fine bourbon.

I love bourbon especially if it is 90 proof or more. With the proper distillation techniques, discriminant selection of sour mash, and the higher the alcohol content, the more versatile and complex the whisky. Wild turkey has 51% alcohol content and it is not for the faint of heart. But adding a splash of water as I always do will relieve much of the tension and will bring more balance and subtlety to the bourbon. I just got this bourbon the other day and I am very much aware how popular this bourbon is. Jimmy Russell, a master distiller established the recipe in 1885 prior to the American civil war and since then, he established a reputation for being one of the best and consistent distillers in Kentucky. The nose of this bourbon is quite heavy. Smoked hickory wood with loads of rich caramel, full grain leather, and explosion of creamy sweet oak, and spicy cinnamon at first sniff. But the adventure does not end there. When I tried it neat, sharp distinct nuances tinker the palate such as abundant rye, full grain leather, heavy accents of creamy decadent vanilla, loads of toasted white oak, some bananas, scattered orange peels, notes of crispy roasted walnuts, deliciously sweet butter pecan, a hint of spicy cinnamon, crushed black pepper, and loads of sweet freshly baked corn bread along with a medium dry finish. Turkey 101 has a distinct complexity to it and at the same time it leaves you more room for further exploration. Definitely one of the best bourbons around.

Good but not great, like so many bourbons at this price point, there are better to be had, unless you just absolutely love the Wild Turkey style
