The remarkable 8 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon has been expertly crafted by the legendary father and son Master distiller team, Jimmy and Eddie Russell.
Using Kentucky limestone purified water and made from the finest corn, malted barley and rye available, this bourbon has been aged for 8 years in classic no.4 char American Oak barrels, giving it a richer, deeper and bolder taste.
Complex notes of vanilla, caramel, oak and spice combine to create a uniquely satisfying whiskey experience.
This is how bourbon is meant to be – bold, genuine, with no compromise.
DETAILS 101 proof aged 8 years
“101 IS THE PERFECT BOURBON FOR AN OLD FASHIONED. THE LIQUID HAS EDGES SO THE FLAVOR OF THE BOURBON DOESN’T GET LOST IN THE COCKTAIL.”

For over 75 years, we’ve been making our whiskey at the top of Wild Turkey Hill in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. It’s where spirited tradition and devotion to our craft come together to yield an unparalleled lineup of bourbon and rye.
Our water comes from the Kentucky River and is naturally filtered through limestone, removing iron and other impurities
We’re still using our original yeast strain – proprietary to Wild Turkey – which has informed our bourbon’s signature flavor for over 60 years.
Wild Turkey is one of the few distilleries to have never used a genetically modified grain in our bourbon.
Not everyone makes a big deal about char level – the intensity of burn inside American White Oak barrels used to age bourbon. But only a No. 4 “alligator” char, the deepest available, can produce our bourbon’s signature amber color and bold flavor. Others might be content with a No. 1, 2 or 3 char; but it’s something we can never compromise on. We use our No. 4 char across all of our bourbons and ryes, giving each one our distinctive Wild Turkey flavor.
We never pour a drop of Wild Turkey until it’s aged at least five years – often six or eight or more. Of course, we legally would only have to age it two years to call it a straight topshelf bourbon whiskey, but we’re not big fans of doing the minimum. Even our tin-clad, wooden rick houses where we store our barrels have stood the test of time; they allow maximum interaction between wood and bourbon, and they’ve been doing it since the 1890s. When we put “Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey” on our label, it’s because our bourbon earned it.
TASTE A hint of sweet upfront with vanilla and caramel notes. Oak and baking spices in the middle.
AROMA Vanilla with cinnamon and oak
FINISH Bold, signature Wild Turkey spice and orange peel
