Wild Turkey Rare Breed Barrel Proof

Wild Turkey Rare Breed was one of the best bourbons I discovered while trying all the 101 Whiskies to Try Before You Die so iIwas very interested when I saw this 112 proof (or 56% ABV) expression in a Texas liquor store.  The nose was dominated by alcohol with sweet grainy notes of corn and rye and some butter.  The taste was oaky at first with caramel, vanilla and sweet brown sugar.  The finish was a little hot and spicy with grassy rye notes.  With a little water it became sweeter and mellow with some black pepper notes.

    Reisetbauer 1998

    This is number 3 of 3 samples I was sent by this distillery in exchange for a copy of 101 World Whiskies to Try Before You Die. This single malt was matured in white wine casks and bottled at 58% ABV.   The nose is similar to the other expressions; sweet and fruity with apricots and red apples. The taste is warm and needs a little water to calm down the alcohol which is drying. The water makes it smoother with creamy toffee, candied fruits and a little oak. The finish is balanced with some tobacco and spice.
