Author: David Jennings

David Jennings is a devout whiskey enthusiast and Wild Turkey superfan. In 2020, he authored American Spirit: Wild Turkey Bourbon from Ripy to Russell (Mascot Books), the definitive guide to Wild Turkey, its history, brands, and expressions. David lives in South Carolina with his wife and two children and writes about Wild Turkey bourbon and rye whiskey on his blog, Rare Bird 101.

From the author of American Spirit: Wild Turkey Bourbon from Ripy to Russell and founder of Rare Bird 101, the world’s #1 Wild Turkey blog―an anniversary gift that ensures you’ll never drink alone.

Since the inception of the Rare Bird 101 blog in 2016, the name Rare Bird 101 has become synonymous with Wild Turkey bourbon. Wild Turkey Musings: A Whiskey Writer’s Retrospective is a celebration of the iconic brand and the passionate community that has grown out of the work of author, historian, and “superfan” David Jennings―a.k.a. Rare Bird.

In commemoration of five years of dedication to all things Turkey, Jennings sifted through hundreds of blog posts from 2016 to 2021 and distilled them to only the most essential. What remains is a collection of unique works that not only showcases the best of Rare Bird 101 but offers previously unpublished insight and perspective―the who, what, how, or why behind each article―as well as new charts, graphs, and maps. From reviews and “best of ” lists to unknown facets and lore of Wild Turkey’s multi-layered history, Wild Turkey Musings is perfect for whiskey fans of any proficiency level, from novice to expert.
