Get a good look at this whiskey. You don't see it much. We all know that Wild Turkey makes a kick-ass bourbon in both 101 and 86 proof. But try finding information on their rye whiskey. Good luck. Yet you'd be hard pressed to find a more interesting whiskey than this 101 proof gem. Like the Jim Beam rye, this stuff is not well known. Like the Jim Beam it is delicious. Unlike the Beam, it is a huge, spicy, robust whiskey with intense aromas and flavors. Where the Beam is light and even delicate, the Turkey is bold and assertive. The finish has this unique tang I can't quite describe. The initial nose is massive, the flavor rich and complex. This is my favorite of all the Wild Turkeys. Make mine a rye, dammit!
