This single cask bottling, distilled in December of 2007, spent ten years maturing in a new charred oak barrel on the sixth floor of rickhouse K. Cask #16-313 was bottled October 2018 and yielded 130 bottles at a natural cask strength of 61.8% ABV.

Our tasting notes are as follows:

Color: Polished copper

Notes on the label:A bourbon for Scotch drinkers that exhibits layers of complexity: chocolate, spice, and nut notes all framed by a delightful hint of charred wood.

The history of the Wild Turkey brand is a long and storied one. While we can start with Thomas Ripy way back in 1891, the real story of the brand began when Austin Nichols launched Wild Turkey as a Non-Distiller Producer (NDP) brand in 1942. At that time, Mr Nichols did not have his own distillery. However, he remedied that in 1971 when he purchased the Boulevard distillery, changing the name to the Wild Turkey Distillery.

With the ever changing whiskey landscape, Wild Turkey may very well be the last American distillery to employ three generations of one family. Jimmy Russell has been employed for over sixty years, his son Eddie for over thirty years, and recently Eddie's son, Bruce, has returned home to Wild Turkey to begin his training as he looks to follow in the footsteps of his father and grandfather.
