Wild Turkey Longbranch Bourbon

Named Wild Turkey's Creative Director in 2016, Matthew McConaughey is launching his own small batch bourbon in collaboration with the company's Master Distiller, Eddie Russell. Longbranch is the end result of two years of development, which involved creating a proprietary process that uses two separate charcoal filtration methods that uses charcoal made from American White Oak and charcoal from Texas Mesquite wood. 

Both methods combine to create a smoother finish with sweet and smokey flavor notes. Made with eight-year-old Wild Turkey bourbon, the flavor profile is described to have notes of caramel, pear, and hints of citrus with a finish of gentle pepper and toasted oak.
