The current Rare Breed I believe is around 108 proof and during my recent trip to KY, the rumor mill was spinning about a proof increase for this label to 114. Rare Breed is another WT offering that's a pretty good pour so that news was encouraging although at the time, unconfirmed.
Back last year Wild Turkey Rye 101 proof did a disappearing act from retail shelves and there was speculation that the rye was going to be discontinued. Chuck Cowdrey dispelled that myth stating that supplies were low across the rye spectrum and Wild Turkey was no exception.
As bourbon enthusiasts, there are some that like to troll the online site for the Government entity known as the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau. In essence, any label a distillery wants to use must pass through the doors and receive approval from the TTB.
Recent submission by Campari (Wild Turkey Parent Company) were for both Wild Turkey Rye and a new proof of Rare Breed at 112.8. Good news on both and the proof increase on the Rare Breed is official.
So, keep your eyes peeled, especially for the Turkey Rye as rye in general is in limited supply.
