  • Barrel Proof

Color: Amber

Overall: Wild Turkey Rare Breed is one of the most widely available, easy to find, well priced, barrel proof bourbons on the market. Maybe even the best of the few. It’s great for sipping neat and banger in a cocktail. It looks good on the shelf and the whiskey inside is great. For these reasons, this is a staple at my house.
