Wild Turkey 101 Proof Bourbon Review

post icon

It’s the granddaddy of the Wild Turkeys, the Wild Turkey 101! Its big, bold and badass. When fern bars reigned supreme during the 1970s and 1980s, Wild Turkey was one of the few distilleries to continue bottling at 101 Proof. It refused to compromise and continued its proud tradition of making Bourbon for Bourbon aficionados. For some reason, I don’t see Wild Turkey being popular in fern bars anyway; it clashes with the white wine … Read more

Wild Turkey Rare Breed Bourbon Review

Another offering from the folks at Wild Turkey, who never cease to surprise us. At this point, Wild Turkey is truly an American icon. And we love the story on how this bourbon got its name—a turkey hunting trip that one of its marketing executives went on and took samples. The next year, the friends asked for some of that “wild turkey.” It’s a great story!

Wild Turkey has a Rare Breed society for bourbon … Read more

Maker’s Mark Bourbon Review

post icon

This is a spirit that you know by the bottle alone. Maker’s Mark comes in the iconic square bottle with the wax closure. But, there are some facts that you might not know about Maker’s Mark. First, the wax closure is protected by a copyright obtained by the family (and was invented by the inventor’s Marjorie Samuels). Second, Maker’s calls it Bourbon Whisky in honor of the company’s Scottish roots (it was those rogue Scots … Read more

Wild Turkey 81 Proof Bourbon Review

post icon

One of the six offerings of bourbon from Wild Turkey. The 81 Proof (or 80 as the website says but my bottle reads 81 Proof) is bottled at a slightly lower proof than the original Wild Turkey recipe and was created to offer a lower octane alternative with the same spicy kick as the original and the famed Wild Turkey 101. In addition to being bottled at a lower proof, the 81 Proof was also … Read more

Basil Hayden’s Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Review

post icon

Basil Hayden’s is a small-batch bourbon from Jim Beam Brands that was first released into the market in the 1980′s. Besides having a cool name (for some reason, I really like Basil Hayden’s), it is also in a beautiful, rustic bottle (seriously, I want to use the band around the bottle as a bracelet). I know that I have cautioned readers from purchasing wine based on the appearance of the bottle before and I will … Read more

Russell’s Reserve 10-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon

post icon

Named for Jimmy Russell, the master distiller of Wild Turkey, the Russell’s Reserve is a small-batch bourbon aged for 10 years.

Russell’s Reserve 10 Year is light brown in color with orange highlights with a nose of corn, vanilla, caramel, raisin and pecans. On the palate, the Russell’s Reserve is smooth with almost eucalyptus notes with further flavors of orange peel, vanilla, caramel, raisins and pecans.

Russell’s Reserve 10 Year is a nice sipping bourbon. … Read more
