If you're looking for a great entry level rye whiskey, you should definitely check out wild turkey 101. It's a great whisky that's a lot cheaper than most other ryes and has a really good proof rating.

The 101 is made with a high rye mashbill and the distillery uses heavy char on the barrels to give it a unique rye taste. It has a very strong spicy nose and it's a great whiskey to drink on the rocks or in a cocktail.

This rye whiskey is very easy to drink and has a very pleasant flavor. It starts out with a bit of vanilla and caramel, then it gives you something that tastes like a coconut, and then it finishes with a very smooth finish.

It is aged for six to eight years in American oak barrels with the deepest char to give it that distinctive wild turkey taste. It is made by master distiller Jimmy Russel who has been making this bourbon for more than 60 years now.

The rye whiskey is very well crafted with the highest quality and it has a bold personality that you will love. It is the real deal and it's a tribute to the passion and conviction of master distiller Jimmy Russell.
