Wild Turkey Rare Breed Rye

56.1% ABV

This is a barrel proof, small batch straight rye whiskey that is non-chill filtered. Using Wild Turkey's classic rye mashbill of 51% rye, 37% corn, and 12% malted barley, and aged in barrels with a no. 4 char, it is a full flavored Rye that drinks a bit more like a bourbon. Cinnamon, caramel, black pepper, and toasty oak frame the oily mouthfeel and lengthy finish. One of our favorite regular releases of the last several years and one of the finer sipping ryes available anywhere. 

About Wild Turkey
Wild Turkey may very well be our favorite Bourbon distillery. We think they are often unfairly overlooked as a legacy brand when in fact, they have basically always been at the forefront of innovation in the American Whiskey space. They were the first distillery that we ever heard talk about NOT using GMO grains and in fact they have never used them in their 75 years of making whiskey. Their 101 Rye was a benchmark bottling (along with Rittenhouse and 1 or 2 others) at a time when rye whiskey was very hard to come by. Their Russell's Reserve Bourbon and Rye have long been our go to spirits at the bar to recommend to guests looking for a short but meaningful step up from the well. The make classic American Whiskies while continuing to break new ground.
