Wild Turkey 101 Proof Whiskey Description:


Jimmy Russell notes that unlike some of its competitors, ''We make Wild Turkey the old-fashioned way. It's a totally natural process which takes substantially more time and money, but we believe it's worth it.''

Wild Turkey 101 proof has an exceptionally soft, but rich aroma for a high proof bourbon, due to quality at all stages of its production. The taste is an American classic with caramel and vanilla and notes of honey and oranges. The finish is very long, rich and full-bodied, powerful, yet soothing.

As many competitors distill at higher (and less expensive) proofs, they must add water to bring down the proof of their bourbons. Wild Turkey, on the other hand, comes out of the barrel at about 109 proof allowing our distiller to add little water and retain the true characteristics of the bourbon flavor. Wild Turkey is put it into the barrel at a lower (and more expensive) proof. Master Distiller Jimmy Russell likens it to making a great soup; if you cook it longer at a lower temperature, you retain the best flavors.

Wild Turkey 101 proof is the recipient of a Bronze Medal at the 2000 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and has also been awarded the American Tasting Award of Exellence.

Wild Turkey Description

Wild Turkey 101 is a 101 proof (50.5% alcohol) bourbon that is a marriage of primarily 6-, 7-, and 8-year-old bourbons. Jimmy Russell notes that unlike some of its competitors, “Wild Turkey 101 has an exceptionally gentle and rich aroma for a high-proof bourbon, thanks to quality at all stages of its production.”

At first taste, 101 is rich with vanilla and caramel, with notes of honey, brown sugar, and a hint of tobacco. Its high proof contributes to its bolder flavor.

Wild Turkey 101 is the benchmark in bourbon, best enjoyed neat or on the rocks. It’s also excellent in more sophisticated cocktails
