WILD TURKEY 101 This is the largest jump in proof we had in the program, 11 proof points. But even at 101 proof Wild Turkey 101 is sweet, fruity, and oaky which balances perfectly with the spicy, herbal qualities of the rye and the intensity of the alcohol. By this time we knew his palate would be acclimated to bourbon and a certain level of intensity, so we knew it was a safe enough jump.

**FULL DISCLOSURE NOTICE: By this point in time he already loved bourbon and had tried many, many more that we’ve laid out on this list. So even though we had achieved our goal, we are completionists, and needed to take the last step to feel like we could properly celebrate our achievement. I mean, you still watch the end of the movie even though you know Bruce Willis was dead the whole time.

Finally, we served our guinea pig a glass of Booker’s neat. Close to 130 proof. While it was slow drinking for him. He loved it. No longer would my coworker go to events and have her husband not share in the experience. He was not only a bourbon lover, he loved all things about bourbon. He has been known to jump behind the bar at events to help pour and start talking about various bourbons. While this year of planned growth and drinking was fun for my coworker and I, it really solidified one simple thing for us. People should be able to drink what they want to drink. And everyone needs to respect that fact. If you want someone to enjoy a spirit like you do, educate them, don’t shame them, which I see too many individuals do. Because most distillers care less about how their product is consumed, and more about the fact that the consumer picked their product.
