Wild Turkey Rare Breed Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Plenty of plump raisins and sultanas, with heady notes of ground almond and marzipan. There’s also the clean fruitiness of green apple to balance things out plus some spice in the form of white pepper to lift the aromas.

    Palate: Rich, sweet and spicy – baked apples drenched in honey, dried fruit and cinnamon. Rich texture, mouthcoating and very seductive.

    Finish: The rich spiciness and sweetness lingers, with everything in balance.

    Comment: A superb bourbon, this overdelivers in terms of the sweet fruit and spice, but it never feels cloying or heavy. Great balance.

    One of the best I've had in this price range. Has a slight spiciness which I like.

    Wouldn''t purchase this again for the simple fact that it hardly got me tipsy, the 101 is one of my favourites and I thought I''d give the rare breed a go, I did and won''t be buying again

    top quality bourbon, you'd have to spend a quite a bit more to get something marginally better. if you like Wild Turkey 101 then its a no-brainer, although its slightly stronger its actually more refined, the few extra %s add a whole lot more flavour, you won''t find a better bourbon for the price

    Very good, takes a little time to ignore the strength and savour the underlying taste but when you do well worth having

  • Charles 24 January 2012

    This is an excellent Bourbon whiskey. Definately well worth trying. Smooth- Full of flavours -Good VFM. I do like Wild Turky Whiskey. An evening sipper or with a small amount of water to just take the burn out Rare Breed will cheer the cockles of your heart. It's the perfect cure to the winter blues.

  • Russ 5 January 2011

    This bourbon is smooth as silk with a rich warm taste that hides it high proof and will chatch you with you if you don't respect it.

  • Robbie Douglas 9 March 2010

    Wild Turkey is for the discerning pallete, add spit only if you want to really taste history. It is a true Rare Breed of person who can enjoy the full flavor of this incredible bourbon.

  • Shaun Brown 3 November 2009

    Utterly magnificent! Will make you glow to the tips of your toes.

  • Martin Shillitoe 13 October 2009

    A fantasic whiskey. DON'T ADD ICE, it holds in the awesome aroma and flavour. However, a drop or two (and I mean a drop) of water will take away the burn and uncover the true brilliance of this stupendous bourbon

    WARNING: You will without doubt go to bed feeling filthy.

  • Anonymous 2 September 2009

    The aroma from the initial opening tells you much but the smoothness enjoyed from the first glass makes the armchair a throne. Mortals should not be present. Prove deservingness first please.

    smoother than the hubbles mirror, travel back in time as you become both history and legend. sleep is as if on a ship in heavy seas and wakefulness will come to those who wait patiently

  • R. Hale 27 August 2009

    Don't know what drink Saffron Michael has been drinking? This is a drink for those appreciating a 'relaxing' evening.

  • Saffa Michail 26 August 2009

    This will pound you into submission. Proceed with caution.
