This Wild Turkey 8 Years Old 101 Proof is a classic dusty Wild Turkey bourbon, bottled in 1988. The Wild Turkey brand was created in 1940, when an Austin Nichols executive took some of the distillery’s warehouse samples with him on a wild turkey hunting trip. The bourbon was so popular among his friends that they continued to ask him for ‘that wild turkey bourbon’, and voila, the iconic brand was born! Please note that the back label of this bottle got teared/damaged during the 30+ years of its existence. Please note: the label is a tad weathered.
