product Details

Wild Turkey 8 Year Old 101 Proof 1980's 1.75 Litre

The Wild Turkey distillery, then known as Boulevard, was built in 1869 in Tyrone, Kentucky. The name Wild Turkey was not used until 1941 when some, shared on a hunting trip, was referred to as "some of that wild turkey whiskey". 

This is the classic 8 year old expression, bottled at 101 US proof in the 1980s.  

'88 is inscribed on the bottom of the bottle.

The bottle size is very rare at 1.75 Litres (59.2 FL.OZ.)
