Excerpt: 99 was easily the best of the RB in my opinion and 03 wasn't far behind it. That said, the modern batches that continue to roll out demonstrate a pretty considerable value, and no shortage of flavor.

This is the latest batched iteration of Wild Turkeys Rare Breed. Based on how long WT RB 03 was around, who knows how long we can expect to this on the market also. The proof is no doubt the result of the batching, and while we can believe this is a single batch, it's easy to hit specific proofs in batches this large, which is almost certainly the case and why this release will be around for a long time.
Huge clove, spicey allspice and sweet musty caramel. Caramel and vanilla are present here also, although they are hidden away behind the big, powerful spices.
Thick and rich on the palate,. Heat, pepper, spice. Pretty thin, not super rich, all things considered. Theres some more caramel, faint tobacco and nougat, but its all pretty muted. After sitting open for a couple of weeks, this bottle's become pure dessert, toffee, brown sugar.
Medium length, mild heat and astringency. Brown sugar dominates with faint pepper. The palate is the star here, and the finish the Achilles heel, although it's no catastrophe.
99 was easily the best of the RB in my opinion and 03 wasn't far behind it. That said, the modern batches that continue to roll out demonstrate a pretty considerable value, and no shortage of flavor. The only caveat? You need plenty of airtime.
