Wild Turkey Master’s Keep

My one hundred and sixty mile drive paid off. I was finally able to fine Wild Turkey’s latest release, Master’s Keep a 17 year old Bourbon IMG_20150905_153911that has moved from a wood rickhouse to a stone rickhouse and back to a wood rickhouse imparting complex flavors with each trip. Aside from being the oldest Wild Turkey ever released the is Eddie Russell’s first release as Master Distiller.

Wild Turkey Tradition

Wild Turkey Tradition has been aged for 14 years in new, white oak barrels with the heaviest (and most expensive) level of char. After aging in the “sweet spot” or what’s sometimes called the “center cut” of Wild Turkey’s oldest warehouses, the liquid was bottled at 101 proof in order to retain the true bourbon flavor as has always been done at the Wild Turkey Distillery. The unique packaging combines a traditional metallic base and metal cap with cork stopper with a clean contemporary glass bottle design. It is presented in a special wooden box with an insert describing the rich story behind the product.
