Wild Turkey Master’s Keep
The Bourbon: Master’s Keep- Bottled in Bond
Distillery: Wild Turkey Lawrenceburg, Kentucky
Average Price: $150
First introduced in 2015, this bourbon is aged 17 years and is now released yearly by Wild Turkey. The mashbill is high in corn, coming in at 75% corn and 13% rye. Bottled-in-Bond is a term dating back to 1897 as a way of keeping whiskey pure, and means that the government has supervised the production and distilling of the spirit. There were about 14,400 bottles released in 2020, making this limited release one of the best bourbons under $150.
Unlike their first low-proof release in 2015, this Wild Turkey is bottled at 100 proof. The vanilla, baked apple, and black cherry tasting notes make it an easily enjoyable bourbon to have on your top shelf.
