    Re: A particular Wild Turkey Rare Breed question.

    I am pretty sure that there is only one W-T-01-97. Mine is 108.6 proof. I believe the 118.6 listing is a typo.

    A bottling missing from the list is W-T-02-95 at 109 proof.

    Re: A particular Wild Turkey Rare Breed question.

    I suspect, too, that there was a second batch of 93 and a first and second batch of 94, but I wouldn't change the list until they've actually been found!

    Re: A particular Wild Turkey Rare Breed question.

    I just picked two very dusty bottles of the W-T-01-96. The Twins (as they will be referred to) will be the first two bottles in my "bunker" and I'm excited to have found them -- till now I've only had a stable of open bottles, but here I've started my collection. The spot I picked them up is actually a pizza joint that happens to double as a liquor store & has a very extensive whiskey collection (for Maine)...it also, fortunately, seems to be frequented by folks who shop off the bottom shelf as every bottle (of anything: whiskey, wine, vodka) over $15.99 has an inch of dust on it. Good for me.

    Re: A particular Wild Turkey Rare Breed question.

    Does anyone know when the Rare Breed started coming in the cardboard tube? Is it just the current bottling (WT03RB) or did it start eartlier than that?

    Wow... thanks for this report. There isn't a day that goes by when I'm not hunting for previous versions of WTRB, I love the stuff - it's in my Top-10 favorite bourbon. I'm working on a W-T-01-99 that is to die for. You guys have been lucky out there - an 02-91 ??? I would have jumped on that bottle. BB

    Re: A particular Wild Turkey Rare Breed question.

    I have found a source with multiple bottles of the W-T-01-99 and WT03RB versions. They are currently listed at $35.99 but he would deal on them...my question is, which version is considered to be a better batch?
