Despite the high proof of Wild Turkey Rare Breed (108.2), we found it balanced best at a 4-to-1, mainly since it’s so sweet and complex—with orange peel, spice, maple and flowers—that adding too much vermouth was overkill.
Woodford Reserve Distiller’s Select (90 proof) is a classic sweet Bourbon, meeting vanilla tones with fruits like cherries, and doesn’t need much vermouth to make the point. It was at its most sultry and inviting at 4-to-1.
And variables don’t end there. There’s garnish (cherry or a lemon twist), classic sweet or dry vermouth (or mix them) and the bitters choice. You could even make it with rye whiskey, but that’s another article.
