American bourbon distillers Wild Turkey has released its latest expression, a Rye whiskey that is barrel proof, with a bold taste called Rare Breed.
The expression will be a permanent edition to the Wild Turkey range and is bottled at 112.2 proof and is a blend of four, six, and eight-year-old non-chill filtered ryes whiskies.
With tasting notes that include sweet caramel apple, honey, vanilla, rye grain spice and charred oak, the finish offers spices mingle with fruit.
“At a time when rye whiskey is more widely appreciated than ever before, Wild Turkey continues our longstanding tradition of offering a wide range of rye whiskies that lend themselves to a variety of cocktails and consumption occasions” says Master Distiller Eddie Russell.
“As a rye aficionado himself, my son Bruce Russell was the catalyst for reminding me of the distillery’s relationship with rye whiskey and the value it plays within our portfolio. It’s with him and other rye fans in mind that we introduce Rare Breed Rye.”
