Producer
Since its introduction, Wild Turkey has maintained a distinctive distillation and ageing process that gives it a smooth taste and a lingering flavor. Wild Turkey uses a differentiated process whereby the bourbon is distilled at a low proof to seal in its flavors. Very little water is added to Wild Turkey, resulting in a full-flavored authentic bourbon taste similar to what one would get straight out of the barrel. Wild Turkey is a genuine drink with a sought after ”burn” that comes from its high proof, an attribute fundamental to the brand and critical in maintaining its authentic bourbon characteristics. Wild Turkey has over 150 years of spirits heritage. Austin Nichols began operations in 1855 as a wholesale grocer specializing in the sale of teas, coffees and spirits. In 1869, the Ripy family founded a distillery on what is now known as Wild Turkey Hill in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky; Austin Nichols purchased the distillery in 1971. Wild Turkey got its name in the 1940s after a distillery executive brought a private supply of 101 proof bourbon along with him for a wild turkey hunting trip with friends. They liked it so much that the next year they asked him to bring along some of that same ”Wild Turkey” bourbon. He honored his friends’ good taste by turning their nickname into a legendary brand.

Whiskey Advocate 90 points - Cotton candy, marshmallows roasting over an open campfire, baked apples, and cornbread batter start a whiskey that then offers hints of caramel apples, pumpkin pie, and roasted pecans. Water opens it up to more nuanced fruit, spice, and sweetness. Without water, brown-sugar butter dominates about mid-palate and leads to a long finish. Dilution makes this a completely different whiskey experience. Reviewed by: Fred Minnick (Fall 2017)  (Oct 2017)

Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - This high proofed Bourbon has decadent flavors of toffee, roasted corn, cinnamon candy, roasted oak, and preserved citrus. The elevated alcohol is deftly hidden by the intense flavors and almost chewy texture. Be forewarned: this whiskey is scarily drinkable and extremely delicious neat. (Mar 2017)
