About Wild Turkey 101 Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey

Wild Turkey 101 Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey is a classic American rye whiskey that is bold, spicy, and robust. It is distilled from a mash bill that is 51% rye, 37% corn, and 12% malted barley, giving it a unique flavor profile that is unmistakable. This rye whiskey is aged for at least four years in new, charred American oak barrels, which gives it a rich, amber color and deep, complex flavors.
