A real deal, hand-selected, and perfectly aged Bourbon classic from day one.

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. All under the watchful eyes and experienced hands of the only father-son master distiller team in the business — Jimmy and Eddie Russell.

Since Campari has invested heavily in the brand and put the Russells in charge they have have done some amazing things. Which brings us to this special edition: Wild Turkey Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey. It’s absolutely singe-barrel stuff. That means that there will be subtle differences from batch to batch… It’s made from their core mash bill of 75% corn, 13% rye, and 12% malted barley aged eight to ten years in new white oak casks with a dark, #4 “alligator char” — it’s ready when it’s ready and not a moment before. It’s a double-gold medal winner and rated 96-100 points by Wine Enthusiast.

Smartass corner:
Technically, a distillery can char their barrels as dark as they wish — and a few experimental releases have done so. But the vast majority of distilleries char barrels with an open flame for less than a minute to a range of #1 to #4 char level.

Christopher
Christopher,
Nose: Rich caramel and butterscotch. Vanilla. A touch of nutmeg. More butterscotch. A bit of tanniny oak coming through. Palate: Ripe cherries. No, cherry jam. Leather. Tannins. Oak. Stone fruit. Candied plums. Finish: Oak. Earth. Every so often, the suggestion of clove. This is a really lovely bourbon that is well worth the price of admission.

Ross,
"Hot". not my favorite sipping bourbon. Strong, lightly sweet with corn and a hint of vanilla everywhere. Not a lot of substance after that to me. Stands up well in mixed drinks.

Brandon,
Good bourbon. Enjoyed it. Like most single barrel bourbons that extra proof adds a little more bite at the end. Still enjoyed it on ice.

ROBERT,
I'm not a big whiskey drinker but the tastings are getting me there. Very strong finish, feels great on the tongue then has a pretty good kick at the end, not a bad kick, just a kick. Great with a good cigar.
 
Don
Don,
I'm normally a fan of Wild Turkey products, but this one is special. Smooth and soothing. It will be on my list of bourbons to keep in stock.
 
Charles
Charles,
This is my favorite from the Wild Turkey stable. From the elegant bottle, to the smoothness, ending in a nice slow burn, I'll brag a bottle of Kentucky Spirit from time to time. The $50-$60 range is a crowded room, but this one is near the top of the class.
