Wild Turkey 101 is all about the power and the flavour.

In 1869, the Ripy Brothers started distilling on Wild Turkey Hill near Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. The namesake product became their number one seller and the name of the distillery was changed to reflect that success. The Ripy Family sold the distillery in 1952, and then the normal rounds of mergers and acquisition occurred. Campari Group out of Italy owns them now and they produce a wide range of Bourbons under the very popular Wild Turkey name along with several other brands.

Wild Turkey is one of the most well-known Bourbon Brands in the world, and Wild Turkey 101 is America’s #1 selling premium Bourbon. Like all Wild Turkey Bourbons, it is aged in the deepest charred barrels — #4 “alligator char.” This brings out a complexity and depth of flavour that has been winning fans for generations.  But the 101 is special. It is made from the best casks of Wild Turkey and it served up at “101 proof” (50.5% ABV) — which is how the Whiskey gets its name and the reason that the flavours are so complex and powerful. The results are exceptional and it has consistently won so many gold medals over the years that we simply cannot list them all here.

Smartass Corner: Last year Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey became the brand ambassador and art director for Wild Turkey.

Chris
Chris,
First time I’ve tried any Wild Turkey and it is way better than expected. Good value priced every day sipper.
 
Nick
Nick,
Having not yet dipped my toe into the Campari bourbon family, I picked up Wild Turkey's 101 as my entry point. Aged in deeply charred barrels and bottled at 101 proof, this often recommended and repeatedly rewarded bourbon comes with the promise of irresistible aromas and bold flavors. Poured neat into a Glencairn glass, I let it breathe for a while before diving in. The nose on the 101 is exceedingly pleasant with layers of vanilla, honey, cream, and autumn spices that create such a nice palette of scents that the alcohol vapors almost sneak by undetected. The sip coats the mouth just enough, carrying over the vanilla from the nose and adding caramel and cinnamon. The finish is moderate with the deep char and oakiness coming through and playing off the caramel layers and a biting spice that lingers long enough to savor. I was surprised to like this as much as I did being the highest proof bourbon I have purchased to date and think this was the perfect label to bridge the gap between the lower and barrel proof bourbons. I can see why Wild Turkey is a staple for so many, and it will be for me as well.

High rye bourbon done right. A smooth sipper straight, and it holds up like a champ in any mixed drink.

I like it. Spicier than your average bear with high rye at the front. Almost, but not quite bitter after taste. Pecan maybe? Underrated.

My goto party bourbon. Lots of heat, and lots of burn. You will know you are drinking alcohol, but it is a full, spicy flavor.

It’s one of my all time favorites. Even way back in my high school days. Remember party till ya puuuuk. A those were the days. But now that I finally grew up, and learned how to drink so that I can appreciate more of the good things in life. Some times you just gota do things the hard way

This is my "go to" bourbon. Great flavor for an upper mid tier bourbon.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Tasty, wouldn't sip, but I keep it on the bar for cocktails.
 
Gregory
Gregory,
There is the most incredibly priced bourbon for what you get. If you don’t want an overly sweet bourbon that has a great alcohol percentage but isn’t harsh this is the one to get. Could not recommend this more highly. Get this over the 80%. If it’s too strong you can always water it down to around the 80%.

DODSTIL
DODSTIL,
I'm not much of a connoisseur of whiskey, bourbon, tequila, scotch, and other high spirits but I try to experience the top shelf brands and learn more about them. I like wild turkey bourbon because it is 101 proof, I don't particularly like drinking anything under 100 proof. Wild Turkey has a nice mellow flavor with a kick.

Okay but not as clean as other Bourbons.

Andrew
Andrew,
This is one of the better bourbons out there if you're looking for something to come home to every day. The price is hard to beat and it's a really solid offering. It's easy to look past Wild Turkey as something you drank in college, but their portfolio is incredibly strong/diverse and this is emblematic of how good the lineup is top to bottom.

Not as fond of this, but some of my friends are.

For a large commercial distillery, the heavy "woody" taste of the barrel is magnificent.

Bold taste, unique from its competitors. I would also recommend taking the tour if you find yourself in KY.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Strong back-end taste, which is to be expected with a 50.5%. Great quality for the price, which I can advise is less expensive at most liquor stores I've been to (sorry Flaviar)

Perfect mixer. Great taste alone, but also great with ginger ale or coke.
