Wild Turkey Rare Breed Barrel Proof Rye 750ml


2 bottles in stock

It’s hard to believe that until recently, Wild Turkey didn’t have an ongoing barrel proof rye expression in their lineup. That changed in 2020 when they released Rare Breed Rye – a companion to their beloved Rare Breed Bourbon that’s loved the world over for bringing pure, unadulterated Wild Turkey to the masses. Rare Breed Rye is a non-age stated rye whiskey that is uncut and unfiltered leaving intact it’s high proof and full-bodied character. At least that’s what I hope. Let’s dive in to find out!

Age: Non-Age Stated (Blend of 4, 6, and 8 year whiskies)

ABV: 56.1%

Cask: New oak casks


Nose: Strong herbal and floral notes. Rose, thyme, and sawdust. The ethanol is immediately strong but settles down after time in the glass. Wood shavings, pine cones, burnt sugars, and mint leaves. Not as expressive as I expected.

 Palate: Touch of funk with a very soft front palate. Citrus, lemon peel, and chalky white mints. Herbal and dry with moments of puff pastry and crumble pie. Lacks a deep complexity, and the alcohol is pronounced throughout the palate. Spicy, but the mouthfeel dissipates quickly.

 Finish: Finishes long but much hotter than I expected. A balance between cinnamon sticks and white peppercorn. More oak and char come through on the finish.
