Our Next Bourbon Pairing Dinner Features Wild Turkey

It's time once again to reserve a ticket for Wobbly Boots Roadhouse's next Bourbon Pairing Dinner! This is an incredible evening at our Lake of the Ozarks restaurant with a very special menu, each course paired with a delectable bourbon. This month those bourbons will be from the Wild Turkey family. 

Reserve Your Tickets Early
This delicious evening will happen on Wednesday, February 28, 2018. Dinner is served in our private room next to the fireplace and will consist of two seatings - 5:30 pm and 8:15 pm. Tickets are $50 each, and you can pick yours up in advance at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse. We highly suggest getting them early because seating will be limited and this event could very likely sell out!

Wild Turkey Family Bourbons
Wild Turkey is an authentic Kentucky bourbon that has stayed true to a tradition that dates back before Prohibition. They stand apart from other bourbons because they use only premium ingredients to create it, select barrels to age it in, and lots and lots of patience before they break into it. 

Straight bourbon only has to be aged 2 years to qualify for that title, but Wild Turkey is never poured until it is has been aged at least 5 years, and often it's longer than that. Every bourbon produced by this incredible company is aged inside an American White Oak barrel with a No 4 "alligator" char, which is the deepest available. This process lends to their signature amber color and bold, rich flavor. The water used comes from the Kentucky River, which is naturally filtered through limestone, removing iron and other impurities. Their original yeast strain is still used to this day, and you will never find a genetically modified grain used to make their signature bourbon. It's all non-GMO, natural, and authentic.

Wild Turkey's master distiller, Jimmy Russell, is the world's longest-tenured active master distiller and has been at it for over 60 years. His son, Eddie Russell, was promoted to master distiller alongside his dad 3 years ago and has been with Wild Turkey for 35 years himself. They are the only father and son duo of bourbon master distillers in the world, and each has created some of Wild Turkey's most amazing varieties. During the bourbon pairing dinner at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, these are the bourbons we will be picking from. 

Russell’s Reserve
The Wild Turkey Master Distiller drinks this as his everyday whiskey. Small-batched and aged 10 years, the juice is worlds different than regular Wild Turkey. It blooms nicely and becomes quite floral with just a small amount of water. Holds well in cocktails, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better sipping whiskey for the price.

Wild Turkey 101

Sweet notes of vanilla, maple, and cinnamon are nicely contrasted with oakiness, spice, and char. ... Spice, pepper, and oak dominate over the palate's sweeter notes. The alcohol taste is definitely more noticeable in Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon than the company's other brands.

Wild Turkey 81
A lower strength bourbon from Wild Turkey, bottled at 81 proof (40.5% abv) and created by Eddie Russell, this has a high rye content in the mash bill and is aged in casks with a heavy char - the result of which is huge flavor and complexity without the same heat as the 101 proof.

Wild Turkey American Honey
A quality bourbon liqueur made with Wild Turkey Kentucky Bourbon and pure honey. American Honey was named as the World's Best Whisky Liqueur three years in a row.

Wild Turkey Rye
Straight Rye Whiskey is an 81 proof (40.5% alcohol) ode to America's first distilled spirit: rye whiskey. When making Wild Turkey Rye, that deeper “alligator” char gives it extra flavor. Big, broad vanilla and spice notes burst through without changing the bold rye taste.

Wild Turkey Rare Breed
Wild Turkey Rare Breed was upped in strength to 56.4% in 2015. Blended from barrels of 6-12-year-old bourbon and bottled at barrel proof with no added water, Rare Breed has a rich, yet mellow flavor despite its high alcohol content.

Enjoy a Guided Experience
As always for these one-of-a-kind bourbon pairing dinners, we will have an expert on hand to guide you through each course of pairings. Specific bourbons are served alongside dishes specifically created to bring out the glorious flavors that make each variety special. Whether you are a foodie, a bourbon fanatic, or possibly a bit of both, this is an evening that you do not want to miss!
