The fourth release in the Master’s Keep range will appeal to collectors wanting to maintain a full set of the series. At 9-11 years old, it’s also the oldest rye whiskey ever offered by Wild Turkey.
Tasting note: [Batch 0001] 52% rye, 36% corn and 12% malted barley make up the mash bill. Amber to orange gold. The nose opens sweet and bourbon-like then turns dry and spicy with oak shavings, white pepper, ryvita biscuit, muddled mint and later, hints of apple pie and cinnamon. Generous and deliciously oily, the palate hits you with a full rye attack, rounding off with light vanilla, ripe peach, bristling spices and minty freshness. Solid. Rewards patience. 16,000 bottles for the U.S. market. 54.5% Alc./Vol.
