Wild Turkey 1855 Reserve Review

This is basically an export version of the Wild Turkey Rare Breed (Batch 02-94 in this case). This is NAS and bottled at 54.8% ABV.

Nose: Cinnamon and nutmeg with honey, molasses, ginger, and old oak.

Palate: Damp, decaying oak with raisins, figs, and a savory creamed corn.

Finish: Very dry, full of rich oak and currants.

Rating: 85/100 – Slightly better than the US Rare Breed I tried it next too, but not a huge leap.

Value for the money: I think these go for $100+ on the secondary, but save your money and just buy a Rare Breed.
