Welcome everyone!

My name is David and in 2016 I started a blog dedicated to Wild Turkey bourbon and rye whiskey, RareBird101.com.  Since that time I've reviewed well over a hundred Wild Turkey whiskey expressions, written several informative articles, and showered Instagram with hundreds of pictures of various Wild Turkey bottles dating from the 1970's through present day.  It's a fun gig and I'm passionate about what I do - have been since day one.  I'm sincerely thankful to everyone that reads, follows, comments, and communicates with me on a regular basis.  You keep me writing.  You keep me inspired.  You keep me creating.

Why Patreon?

Hosting a steadily growing blog has its expenses.  First, there's web hosting.  I've never allowed advertisements on my blog and I never will.  You have my promise.  In fact, I pay annually to keep them off.  As I continue to grow in followers I hope to upgrade my hosting options, invest in search engine optimization, and integrate interactive features to benefit my readers.

Second, I have to keep my content fresh - that requires new bottles to review and photograph.  Many of these Wild Turkey expressions are limited or vintage, and therefore not easily obtained.  Your support will allow me to acquire and review a larger variety of releases to help other Wild Turkey fans know what they might expect from specific expressions.  Please understand that you're not helping me build a collection (I don't believe in keeping sealed bottles).  You're helping me build a library of tasting notes, product research, and a genuine fan-based perspective to share with the world.  And for the record, I always share my whiskey with friends, family, and associates.  After all, sharing is the best thing about this hobby.

Are there rewards for supporting?

Absolutely.  Outside of my blog (which is free to everyone 24/7/365), details of my Patreon rewards are listed on the sidebar (scroll down if reading on a mobile).  But even at the base level of support you'll have access to my exclusive Patreon-only content.  That content includes (but is far from limited to):

  • One-day early access to new Rare Bird 101 blog posts
  • Monthly bonus reviews exclusive to my Patreon site
  • "First pour" initial impressions and "last pour" closing thoughts
  • Photos not featured on Rare Bird 101 or Instagram
  • Input in determining future reviews, articles, and interviews
  • Contests and merchandise exclusive to my Patreon supporters

So, thank you.

Thank you for reading, following, and supporting my passion ... Rare Bird 101.  Without you, this endeavor would never be.  Cheers!
