Wild Turkey Rare Breed Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Rare Breed is a "barrel-proof bourbon," meaning it is bottled directly from a variety of barrels at the proof it reaches in those barrels, with no added water to lower the proof or dilute the flavor. This bourbon is a unique marriage of Wild Turkey 6-, 8- and 12-year-old stocks, which give the whiskey a rich, exceptional flavor that is remarkably smooth, considering its high alcohol content. It is assertive with hints of light oranges, mint, and tones of sweet tobacco that will remind you of your grandfather's pipe-bowl. The finish is long, warm and nutty and lingers in the mouth with hints of hot peppers and well-toasted whole wheat bread.
Wine EnthusiastLight, drying and spicy, this cask-strength Bourbon offers vanilla and cedar notes. Adding water coaxes out vanilla, honey and a pleasing touch of almond.
