Wild Turkey, a legendary American distiller known for its top-shelf liquors, has just released two limited-edition bourbons that serve as an excellent addition to any whiskey lover’s collection. A drop of their innovative expressions is a journey down the line of American whiskey tradition.

Wild Turkey Master’s Keep One

The first of Wild Turkey’s anticipated releases is the ‘Master’s Keep One,’ a blend of bourbons ranging from nine to 14 years old. This sui generis expression is a result of the distinctive crafting technique developed by the distilling virtuoso – Eddie Russell. It is the first in what one assumes will soon be a new line of spirits aimed at demonstrating the artisanship of the Russell family’s distilling legacy.

The delightful aroma of caramel, vanilla, oak, and light citrus notes welcome you to the Master’s Keep One tantalizing realm. A sip will take you on a splendid trip of intense flavors, revealing toasted caramel, vanilla, and ripe apple. The finish lingers with a medley of spices, ending with a soft, well-defined peppery note.

Wild Turkey Master’s Keep One comes in a tall, heavy decanter-style looking bottle that screams elegance and takes center stage in any collection. The label adorning the bottle signifies the union of the old and new distilling techniques.

Wild Turkey Bottled-In-Bond

Next in line is the Wild Turkey Bottled-In-Bond, a 17-year-old bourbon, the oldest age-stated release ever to spring from the barrels of Wild Turkey. The Bottled-In-Bond is a tribute to the Bottled-In-Bond Act of 1897, which set the gold standards for American bourbons.

From the nose, it whispers traces of spicy apples and pears, mingling with the enticing sweetness of caramel. Pour yourself a dram and enjoy the plethora of flavors that come rushing with every drop. It starts with a classic caramel, followed by deeper notes of dense fruit, hints of sweet oak, and a whispering slight smoky finish. The brilliance lies in its balance, never tipping too far in any direction.
