A Wild Turkey in a Turkey shaped bottles, how ya like that? The Kentucky Spirit was introduced in 1994, with casks personally selected by legendary Master Distiller Jimmy Russell. This Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit comes from barrel no. 1 (!) and was bottled in 1996. At the time of introduction, it was the second single barrel bourbon that got a wide release, ever. Which brand was the first? Blanton’s of course. That single barrel bourbon was such a big hit that Wild Turkey did not want to stay behind. This 101 proof single barrel comes in the original box.
