Wild Turkey Master’s Keep Revival Review

Wild Turkey Revival

Master’s Keep Revival is Wild Turkey‘s third U.S. release of the Master’s Keep lineup.  We previously reviewed the 17 Year and Decades, which received numerous accolades including being named #3 on Whiskey Advocates Whiskey of the Year awards.   Both were quality bourbons, and so we have high hopes for this third U.S. release.

Single Cask Nation Wild Turkey

Single Cask Nation

It’s no surprise that the members of Flight Club are fans of Wild Turkey (see 30 days of Wild Turkey November 2017).  So when the good people at Single Cask Nation/Jewish Whisky Co. put the word out earlier this year that they were working on not one, but two, Wild Turkey releases, we were excited to try and get these bottles.

Single Cask Nation is essentially a U.S. based independent bottler putting out a variety of whisky and other spirits. These particular Wild Turkey single casks were limited in number and sure to be in high demand.  And boy, did this prove to be true.  Both releases (total of 283 bottles) sold out in minutes and Flight Club was fortunate to get a bottle of each release.

Wild Turkey Longbranch Review

Let’s get one thing out of the way before we start in on Wild Turkey Longbranch – “Alright, alright, alright.”

Yes, Matthew McConaughey is instinctively linked to this quote and the persona portrayed in the 1993 comedy “Dazed and Confused.”  Yes, McConaughey has become likewise instinctively linked to products in which he endorses – recently, Lincoln cars, and a decade ago, Dolce & Gabbana.  And yes, McConaughey is one of the growing number of celebrities now linked to the booming bourbon market.

Wild Turkey 13 (2014) Review

Wild Turkey 13

Wild Turkey Month has come and gone.  One bottle that we had hoped to  sample for our 30 Wild Turkey reviews in 30 days was the Wild Turkey 13.  This 13-year age-stated Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is an export only special edition. This bottle dates to 2014.

We weren’t able to get one before the end of November, but Stephen Benson recently found one at auction.  We sat down a few weekends ago and gave it a sample.

30 Days of Wild Turkey: Five Takeaways and Parting Thoughts

Epilogue.

We hope you have enjoyed Wild Turkey Month – 30 Turkeys and 30 Days as much as we have.   We learned much along our journey, with significant reward coming by way of 30 different bourbons sampled over the course of the 30 days.

Each chapter featured a different segment of Wild Turkey’s market.  We attempted to bring you a solid sampling of Wild Turkey’s offerings in each of those segments.  Often, that included multiple variations of the same products, such as single barrels from different warehouses and different warehouse floors.  Other times that included identical products produced more than a decade apart.

We haven’t been able to provide any conclusions as to which floors or warehouses make the best single barrel bourbons, but resources exist for that sort of study.  Nor can we tell you definitively which Wild Turkey bourbons are the best all time – resources exist for that as well.   But what we can tell you is our overall observations about Wild Turkey.

Here are our five takeaways from the past 30 days.
