Wild Turkey 81 Bourbon 70cl £18.00 @ Tesco

Found 27th Jun 2013
I prefer Wild Turkey 101 but this is a great deal for the 81 version which is a lower proof of 40.5% alcohol. This was only introduced into stores last week and may not be everywhere - probably just the bigger stores.

Wild Turkey 81 is an 81 proof (40.5% alcohol) bourbon aged 6-8 years, longer than any other bourbon in its class. To give it that signature kick, Eddie Russell uses the classic Wild Turkey high-rye mash bill and ages it in our famous #4 alligator char American oak barrels. 81 shines on its own, but it’s best in a mixed drink like a Manhattan or Old Fashioned.

Unlike other whiskies, which lose flavor when mixed with other ingredients, Eddie Russell’s Wild Turkey 81 gives drinkers “an everyday whiskey that can stand up to any mixer or in any cocktail with the bold, in-your-face taste that is distinctively Wild Turkey.”

Bought two last week. As you say, 101 is superior, but this rivals most other bourbons.

Heat! My bourbon shelf is looking a little sparse

I do enjoy the 101 (not sure if it is the strength or the taste I like though)Never tried the weaker version. Might track a bottle down at the weekend.

my favourite bourbon. Been looking for this to become available in UK ships for years. Nice find Op. HEAT

Not a bourbon but a very nice tipple >

I'm sure bourbon lovers would appreciate it.

Excellent find op, yum yum yum. Thanks a lot

Do you think there is a chance that Tesco's will start stocking the 101?

Should I be grabbing this for my drinkies tonight then? Never tried this, but love Jim Beam, Maker's mark (+the Irish whiskies).

None at tesco extra eston

I tried to buy this from Tesco online but it is showing as not in stock - surprise surprise.

Anyways I thought I would go online to see if I could find it (the 101) anywhere and lo and behold, apart from the usual suspects who aren't cheap I found a company called Uvinum who are charging just under £18 a bottle - but there is a £20 delivery charge. Now 1 bottle is not on but a case of 6 works out at under £21 a bottle - happy days.

No idea who Uvinum are, they seem to be selling on on behalf of another company called GrauOnline. They are both based on Spain. Hopefully it will all go well!
