The classic Wild Turkey’s orange amber colour hints at a nose of vanilla, caramel Christmas pudding and a trace of corn. Matured in a new American oak barrel, the palate is rich and full-bodied with butterscotch, cinnamon, cloves and a quiet hint of nutmeg before a rapid finish invites another sip.

Wild Turkey 101 Proof’s auburn colour brings a thick, rich nose that is strong in vanilla with hints of leather, honey and tobacco leaf.

The notably rich, dark amber colour of Wild Turkey Rare Breed matches the heavy bodied spirit. Nutty vanilla base notes and light smoky caramel undertones bring a nose of caramelised peach and black pepper. Palate is curiously smooth yet assertive with traces of citrus, dark chocolate and and controlled Demerara sweetness before a long, aromatic finish with lingering notes of honey.
