I should first mention that this review comes to you today as a specific request from the audience. I appreciate any and all feedback in terms of my content, and in what you (the reader) would like to see on here. Please reach out to me via Email or Discord if you’d like to discuss bourbon, request reviews, or anything else.
If you’ve spent time cruising the content here on The Bourbon Finder you are likely familiar with Rare Breed Rye being my Whiskey of the Year for 2020. I am a fan of many things from the Wild Turkey Distillery and it’s only right that we talk about Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon today.
Few folks describe Wild Turkey bourbon quite so well as the brand itself, so here’s a quick excerpt from their website:
For over 60 years, Wild Turkey has been making 101 the same way, the right way. Aged in American White Oak barrels coated in the deepest alligator char, Wild Turkey 101 has an impossible-to-miss character.
Its high rye content and the 101 proof makes it a most flavorful Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey that carries a bit of a pleasant bite to it – making it highly enjoyable neat, on the rocks, or in a cocktail.
While I give Wild Turkey plenty of credit for knowing their product and being able to market it nicely, I would be remiss for not mentioning my good friend–and Wild Turkey superfan–David Jennings. David is a renowned blogger, reviewer, and author of all things Wild Turkey. You can read his expert Wild Turkey reviews on RareBird101.com and check out his books on WildTurkeyBook.com if you’re looking for the absolute best information on this iconic brand/distillery.
