Wild Turkey Master’s Keep ONE Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey 750 mL

$599.99

The Whiskey Jug – SCORE: 5/5 (simply fantastic, can’t recommend enough ~ A/A+ | 94-99)

Master’s Keep One is the ONE. I was wondering if anything would supplant that original MK 17 yo as my favorite in the line, but here we are with a whiskey that takes everything I love about Wild Turkey and dials it up to 11. The Revival came oh so very close, it was a stunner, but this is just pure, beautiful, unbridled Wild Turkey deliciousness and sits at the top of my MK ranking.

Adding watery brings out a slight breadiness and some graham cracker-like sweetness across the whole experience, but it honestly doesn’t need it. It’s perfectly drinkable at their signature 101 proof and delivers a complex and engaging experience across the senses. This is a seriously good whiskey and if I could afford it I’d track down a case.

Here in CA, it’s just a couple bucks under $200 after tax and I have a tough time paying that for a single bottle of whiskey except as an x-mas or b-day present to myself. And I guess that’s what the Wild Turkey Master’s Keep One will have to be, one of my two yearly whiskey splurges; I’m sure you can guess which of the two it’s going to be.

Description

Master Distiller Jimmy Russell’s love of mid-aged bourbons is no secret. To reflect his father’s tastes, Eddie hand-selected barrels aged between 9 and 10-years-old. To reflect his own passion for the complex characteristics that come with older bourbons, Eddie selected a small batch of carefully aged 14-year-old whiskey. He artfully crafted these two profiles into one with a second maturation in new oak barrels specially toasted and charred.
