Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon, Wild Turkey's flagship product, is a robust Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey with a power of 101. The much-loved Wild Turkey 101 is America's best-selling premium bourbon, a richly-flavored combination with a mellowness that belies its high strength. This bourbon is matured in American white oak barrels with the deepest char for more flavor than is legally required. It was awarded gold by the Beverage Tasting Institute in 2021 and a gold medal by the San Francisco World Spirit Competition in 2021. In the 2021 Ultimate Spirit Challenge, it earned 90 points.
Wild Turkey has been brewing 101 the same way, the right way, for over 60 years. As a result, Wild Turkey 101 has a remarkable character, aged between 6 to 8 years in American White Oak barrels with the deepest alligator char.
Its high rye content and 101 proof combine to create a tasty Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey with a sound bite, making it ideal for sipping plain, on the rocks, or in a cocktail.
It's brewed with water from the Kentucky River that's been naturally filtered through limestone to remove iron and other contaminants, as well as Wild Turkey's original yeast strain, which has been responsible for the bourbon's unique flavor for over 60 years. In addition, wild Turkey is one of the few distilleries that does not use GMO grains in their bourbon.
Vanilla, baking spices, and rye grain smells emerge from a swirl of the glass of Wild Turkey 101. Deeper inhalation reveals notes of toasted wood, toffee, and a jolt of ethanol that reminds you of the bourbon's strength of 101. A mild corn oil presence is immediately discernible, setting the tone for a pleasant mouthfeel. A generous dosage of rye spice, baking spices, and strong oak, as well as a light layer of vanilla and toasted oak, are mixed into this. A burst of rye spice leads the way, followed by a blend of muted vanilla and oak. The vanilla's sweetness dissipates fast, leaving a peppery dry oak in its wake. The spiciness lingers and fades away gradually.
