       Rare Breed and 1855 Reserve

    1855 Reserve Batch. No. W-T-10-92 

    Wild Turkey Rare Breed is a blend of 6, 8 and 12 year-old whiskies and was launched in 1991 with batch W-T-01-91.  1855 Reserve is simply an export (Japan) label for Rare Breed and so these are, for the most part, identical bourbons. The name "1855 Reserve" refers to the year that the Austin Nichols was founded. 1855 Reserve appears to be more limited and more difficult to find.

    Just found a W-T-01-99 for $21 at some hole in the wall store. This post was super helpful.
