    I was chatting with a friend last night, who mentioned that Wild Turkey produces a 108-proof bourbon that happens to be the strongest available (commercially).

    Is this true?

    Wild Turkey produces a 101, at least. There are stronger bourbons; Booker's, for example, is between 121-127.

    I've had the 101, which is very good (and pretty strong). Can't say I'm familiar with Booker's.

    Wild Turkey Rare Breed is cask-strength and is bottled at 108.4 proof. Because Wild Turkey goes into barrel at a relatively low proof, its cask-strength offerings will be lower proof than those from other distilleries. George T. Stagg, for example, is usually around 140 proof.
