It is barrel-proof, meaning that it's uncut, bottled directly from the barrels at the proof it is reached in those barrels. It is sister to award-winning Rare Breed bourbon and the first permanent super-premium rye in the Wild Turkey family.
Ageing: A blend of 4, 6 and 8 year old Kentucky straight ryes.

"Mild almond and cinnamon aromas lead into cocoa and caramel on the surprisingly luscious, lip-smacking palate. Adding water coaxes out mulling spices, orange flesh and peel, finishing with a final dazzle of ginger and cinnamon."

"Rare Breed bourbon enjoys notoriety as a great value, and this new rye stands shoulder to shoulder with it. A gift for Wild Turkey fans from master distillers Jimmy and Eddie Russell, it's not chill-filtered, making it even more full-bodied and rich. Zesty aromas of mint, eucalyptus, pine, and cedar chest mingle with sliced orange, candied strawberry, and sweet pecans on the nose, and that profile carries over into the nutty, spiced, herbaceous, and citrus-sweet flavors of the palate. With water the full spectrum of flavors; and the harmonious interplay of grain and barrel reveal themselves, leaving an unforgettable impression of perfectly controlled power." - Susannah Skiver Barton
