Wild Turkey is known to have a lower entry-proof, meaning the product is a lower proof as it comes off the still and goes into the barrel. That lower entry proof carries more flavor from the mash and gives Wild Turkey products a bit distinct flavor. Although Wild Turkey Rye 101 lacks an age statement, you’ll find that the whiskey in the bottle is roughly 6-7 years old that has been rested in charred new American oak barrels in rickhouses in Lawrenceberg, KY

Tasting Notes

"This rye greets you with beautiful herbaceous and sugary aromas of mint, eucalyptus, caramel and honey followed by rich aromatic notes of toasted oak and baking spices of cinnamon and vanilla. One sip reveals big wood notes of minty herbs and baking spice with trailing hints of tart green apple. The rye is warm and lingers with heaps of peppery cinnamon and vanilla. "
