Rare Breed bourbon is a unique marriage of Wild Turkey 6, 8 and 12 year old
Wild Turkey only has one mash bills for all their bourbons, including the
Russel's Reserve line. 75% Corn/13% Rye/12% Barley.
Rare Breed has been made since 1991. Batch WT-03RB is the 11th batch.
The nose is caramel, sweet corn and vanilla ice cream with medium rye spices.
The taste is more smooth and lighter, than I had expected from a barrel proof
at 108,2. There is sweet corn, vanilla, honey with allspice and toasted oak. It
got a bit of a burn to it, but it quickly fades into a long finish, with
vanilla and dry oak.
