Crafted in one of the few distilleries to remain dedicated to the art of rye whiskey, Rare Breed Rye is a blend of non-chill filtered rye. It is barrel-proof, meaning that it’s uncut, bottled directly from the barrels at the proof it is reached in those barrels. It is sister to award-winning Rare Breed Bourbon and the first permanent super-premium rye in the Wild Turkey family.

TASTE

Sweet caramel and fruit at the start that gives way to a complex flavor of wood and rye spices

AROMA

Starts sweet with caramel apple up front, followed by rich and complex layers of honey, vanilla, rye grain spice, and charred oak underneath

FINISH

Smooth and drawn-out, where lingering spice flavors mingle with dried fruit and a pleasant fading warmth

PROCESS

112.2 Barrel-proof, a blend a 4,6, and 8-year-old Kentucky Straight Rye
