Wild Turkey Rare Breed was upped in strength to 56.4% in 2015. Blended from barrels of six to 12-year-old bourbon and bottled at barrel proof with no added water, Rare Breed has a rich, yet mellow flavour despite its high alcohol content.Tasting Notes (1)
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
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.
Rich, sweet and spicy – baked apples drenched in honey, dried fruit and cinnamon. Rich texture, mouthcoating and very seductive.
The rich spiciness and sweetness lingers, with everything in balance.
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.
