Wild Turkey Rare Breed Barrel Proof Rye
Rye — Kentucky, USA
Tasted July 29, 2020
It’s been a while since I felt the world needed another rye option, but this Turkey’s balance of cream, pepper and clove might just convince me that there’s room for another bottle on your shelf. Drink it at its unadulterated barrel proof if your tastes lean towards spice or add a dash of water to accentuate the creamy notes and bring out a sweeter finish. The nose doesn’t have the crackling pepper of last year’s Master’s Keep Cornerstone, but there’s no reason to swoop on those dust-gathering bottles if you can find this much cheaper option.
