Wild Turkey Master's Keep 17 Year

This limited edition, 17 year old Bourbon “heralds the next chapter of an extraordinary distilling family’s history,” the company says.  After 34 years perfecting his trade, Eddie joined his father, Jimmy Russell, at the helm of Wild Turkey, making them the only father and son master distilling duo in the industry, with an amazing 95 years of whiskey making experience.”

The story of Master’s Keep begins in 1997. Wild Turkey had a surplus of Bourbon and no warehouse space left, so Eddie needed a place to store and age the extra barrels. A friend at another distillery offered his empty stone warehouses, but Eddie knew these would age the Bourbon differently than the wooden warehouses at Wild Turkey.

He decided to take a chance and experiment a little, and so the barrels spent several years in stone warehouses before eventually coming back to Wild Turkey’s wooden ones. After 17 years and 200 miles, Eddie felt these traveling barrels had reached their peak flavor.

Barreled at 107 proof, the whiskey was 89 proof when dumped and 86.8 proof (43.4% alc./vol.) when bottled a result of the time these particular barrels spent aging in stone warehouses.

“Master’s Keep is the result of a lot of experimentation, patience and faith,” said Eddie Russell. “The sweet spot for Bourbon aging is usually between 8-12 years because older Bourbons tend to become too woody or spicy from sitting too long in the barrel. What I was able to do with Master’s Keep was retain the Bourbon’s rich caramel and vanilla flavors by aging the barrels in both stone and wood warehouses, sampling from them every few months to decide their next move.”

Master’s Keep has a smooth and silky introduction that transforms into caramel and vanilla sweetness, and finishes with a burst of spiciness and oak. It is a golden hue, perhaps lighter than one might expect from a 17 year old whiskey. The color is attributed to the whiskey’s time in the stone warehouses, where the liquid would have less interaction with the barrel’s charred wood thanks to the cooler temperatures within.

Delivered in a distinguished bottle that reflects the craftsmanship and passion that went into the Bourbon itself, Master’s Keep is made of the highest quality crystalline glass, the company says.

Delivered in a special glass bottle with an etched “wild turkey,” the bourbon will have a special place on the shelves and in the glasses of Wild Turkey fans and collectors alike.  Only about 36,000 released worldwide

Wild Turkey Master's Keep Decades

Decades is a blend of Bourbons that have aged somewhere between 10 and 20 years, from barrels coming from the center and upper floors of their McBrayer Rickhouse. “For Master’s Keep Decades, I went all out and used some of the rarest and most precious barrels in our stocks,” said Eddie Russell. “The final product is a whiskey with the finesse and deep character of older Bourbon, anchored by the bold, balanced, and vibrant backbone of younger bourbon. I have to say, this is a whiskey I truly love and I’ll be holding a few bottles back for my personal collection.”

Wild Turkey Revival

Wild Turkey Revival is a blend of bourbons aged between 12-15 years in American before being finished in Oloroso sherry sourced from Jerez, Spain. Expect bold, spicy notes, and smooth vanilla flavors enhanced by intriguing flavors of hazelnut and citrus. This beautifully nuanced bourbon earned 96 points from Wine Enthusiast. This compelling bourbon gets its final rest in Oloroso sherry casks sourced from Jerez Spain. “96 points.” —Wine Enthusiast
