From the back of the bottle:12 Year-old Wild Turkey Kentucky Straight Bourbon is a legend, expertly craft by our Master Distiller Jimmy Russel and his son, Eddie. This bourbon is made with Kentucky limestone purified water and the best ingredients available. It has been aged 12 years and in hand-selected heavily-charred white American oak casks. 12 Year-old Wild Turkey 101 is bigger, firmer, smoother, and more powerful than younger bourbons. It has smooth and rich notes of caramel, chocolate, honey and vanilla for a taste that’s a true reward of patience. This 12 Year Old bourbon is truly deserving of the title, “The World’s Best Bourbon” – passionately genuine with uncompromised excellence.

Shattered glass really sucks, so if you’re on the move, this Glencairn-like stainless steel snifter glass should survive your travels. Full transparency, this is an Amazon affiliate link, so I may earn a commission if you buy this or something else from Amazon.
