30 Days of Wild Turkey: Day 5 (Wild Turkey 101 – 8 Year Review)

Wild Turkey 101 8 year

Chapter 1, Part 5.

Over the month of November 2017, Flight Club will be bringing you “30 Turkeys in 30 days.”  Each day, we will post a review of a different Wild Turkey product.  Throughout that journey, we will provide you with background information on the company, the products and the people behind the products, all of which we hope create a better understanding of what Wild Turkey brings to the world of bourbon.  A table of contents for each of these posts can be found here.

We recently brought you Part 1 of this Chapter 1 of Wild Turkey Month, with company history and the evolution of the 80/81/101 proof products.   Over the past two days we have reviewed two other Wild Turkey 101 vintages.  Today we sample a late 2000’s bottle of Wild Turkey 101 – 8 Year (Export).

November 2017 Pick of the Month: Wild Turkey 101 Rye

Each month, Flight Club selects a club-endorsed “Pick of the Month.”  The parameters on the Pick of the Month are (a) locally available in Wichita, Kansas (b) under $40 and (c) something believed to be a good value or limited availability at the moment.  We invite everyone (Club members or not) to break open a bottle and provide comment and feedback. 

This month, Flight Club presents “Wild Turkey Month: 30 Turkeys in 30 Days,” where we provide you background information on the Wild Turkey brand, the people, and the bourbon whiskey products themselves. We are also providing 30 bourbon reviews – one each day of the month.

For our Pick of the Month, we decided to stay within the Wild Turkey family, but step outside the bourbon line and feature the Wild Turkey 101 Rye.
