Wild Turkey Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 101 Proof


Bolder but hotter than the 81 proof version, this Kentucky Bourbon has a drying feel, and lots of maple, caramel and vanilla flavor, finishing long with touches of dried orange peel and clove. Add a splash of branchwater to even out the alcohol.

Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon is Wild Turkey’s flagship brand. Wild Turkey is distilled at a very low proof in order to help embody all of the barrel flavors during aging. It comes out of the barrel at around 109 proof necessitating only slight dilution before being bottled at 101 proof. This process helps produce a final product that, although not barrel proof, is very close to what came right out of the barrel. Wild Turkey Kentucky Straight also uses the heaviest char 4  on their barrels which helps create the company’s flavor profile and deep color. Wild Turkey Master Distiller Jimmy Russell is the longest-tenured active master distiller in the world with 60 years experience.

A strong blend of toffee and caramel with a hardy amount of alcohol scent is present. Spice and vanilla provide a nice base with additional layers of toasted oak and butterscotch. Overall it’s very likeable with its layers of sweet notes that hit with the perfect intensity.

The 101 proof expression is Wild Turkey’s most well known bourbon and their flagship brand. While they also produce an 80 proof version, it’s the 101 proof expression that immediately comes to mind when “Wild Turkey” is mentioned. This higher-than-normal proof for a company’s standard bottle has probably become this bourbon’s most beloved attribute. It’s amazing that just one extra proof point can differentiate a product so much from the 100 proof bottled-in-bond bourbons in the marketplace.
