I have a sentimental fondness for Wild Turkey that I just can't shake. At present I have bottles of 12 year-old, Kentucky Spirit, Rare Breed, Russell's Reserve, 101, and rye. All that's missing, based on the U.S. bourbon line-up, is the 80 proof, right?
However, if I had to limit my future bourbon consumption to the bottlings from a single distiller, it would be this one .
My only problem with Buffalo Trace is that their bottles are so danged purty, that I hate to empty them, knowing that I have nothing better to do with them than toss them in the recycle bin. (I've been down to about four ounces of Rock Hill Farms for close to a year. I just can't bear the thought of that beautiful bottle sitting in a container on my curb come trash day.)
Nevertheless, Wild Turkey will never be far behind. (Excuse me while a take a couple of gulps of WT rye and Reed's ginger beer... Yes!)
