It goes perfectly well in a mixed drink, old fashioned is my fave! But every once in a while when I feel bold, I'll pour it on the rocks.

I have drank Wild Turkey Old Fashioneds for at least 20 years, and I have made OF's with countless other brands. Wild Turkey Old Fashioneds are without question the best. I drink it straight up or on the rocks too. I love the taste.

Got this for mixing with Coke but it’s delicious neat as well (not complex but I like the Wild Turkey profile).

The bottle was unscared and clean. The effect perfect
Of all the bourbon I've tried regardless of price point, this has above all out done so many...I've since become a huge fan of the Russell's. Where else can you find such a tradition in bourbon...for those who also enjoy Irish Whisky try Dunville's PX 10 year from Belfast, the best in my opinion. Slainte

Wild Turkey 101 is great. The 86 proof is awful.

My favorite bourbon hands down. I don't even try anything else anymore. Straight up or an ice cube. Unbelievably smooth.

Haven’t had any yet.
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
