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.

One of the best 100 proof bourbons. The caramel finish is always there. One of my favorites.

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.

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)
