Wild Turkey 8 Years Old 101 Proof 1987 is a dusty bottle of superb Wild Turkey bourbon, bottled in 1987 at 101 proof and exported for the Italian market. It was aged for a minimum of 8 years, but possibly contains much older bourbon. During the Glut Era, a period in which bourbon sales were at an all-time low, older premium barrels often ended up in standard bottles of Wild Turkey. Bottlings from this era are considered some of the best bourbon Wild Turkey has ever produced! Wild Turkey’s classic Beyond Duplication range was replaced in the mid-1980s by the Cheesy Gold Foil, but was still bottled for the export market all the way up to 2012.
