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.

    Yes I love it – got the heat of a bourbon and the smoothness of a good brandy.

    Very smooth, no hangover, in spite of high alcohol content. My favourite bourbon.

    Rare Breed is a fantastic bourbon for this price point. Less astringent and medicinal than standard WT 101. It's surprisingly smooth and gentle for a high proof bourbon. A definite upgrade from the regular Wild Turkey. Highly recommended.

    I've never had the 112 proof bottling, my review is for the current 116 proof bottling of Rare Breed. This is an amazing whiskey. It has a nice sweet and mellow flavor. Being a high ABV, you can add a few drops of water, if it's alcohol volume is too high for you, and the flavor profile comes out and is amazing.

    This bourbon is one of my favorites. It isn't overly sweet. Worth every penny. Nice burn. Best of the Wild Turkey products. Highly recommend it.

    I like a blended Scotch but this is better. Tried it after seeing it at the store and picked up 6 bottles for gifts.

    The first thing I ever bought form an abc store, it was one of my great grandfather's favorites so that in mind, it was the first thing I tried after my 21st birthday, to say the least I wasn't disappointed. I'd take a bottle of Wild Turkey Rare Breed over a bottle of Jack Daniels any day.

    It is softer than my 2008 at 54.1% surprising if only you could find the Legend Tradition or Reserve.
