Wild Turkey Rare Breed (2016)



Wild Turkey Rare Breed was first released in 1991. Since then, there have been over 10 batches released. The batches were once denoted by a batch number, but more recently only by a unique proof. Rare Breed is a blend of 6, 8, and 12 year old bourbons, and though this blend of ages is not detailed on the label, it has been confirmed by Wild Turkey Brand Ambassador Matt Gandolfo in a Bourbon Pursuit podcast.

Wild Turkey uses a single mashbill for all of their bourbons and bottles Rare Breed at barrel proof. Wild Turkey’s barrel entry proof (the proof the distillate enters the barrel for aging) is relatively low at 107 to 115, up from 105 at one time, resulting in a low bottling proof by comparison to competitors’ barrel proof products.

Wild Turkey is a Kentucky Straight Bourbon whiskey made by the Austin Nichols Distilling Company. The name Wild Turkey was made up after a 1940’s wild turkey hunting trip by distillery executive Thomas McCarthy during which he shared some warehouse samples with his fellow-hunters. The year thereafter his friends asked for “some of that wild turkey whiskey”, and a brand was born.
