The name of the coffee says it all and you are not wrong in assuming that it consists of coffee and bourbon. Simplicity is the key in creating this true masterpiece.

1 ounce of Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon Whiskey
1/2 ounce Wild Turkey American Honey Liqueur
Whipped cream, which is optional
Mix your own Kentucky Coffee…
Add bourbon and liqueur to your pre-heated coffee mug. Pour hot coffee and whipped cream on top. Voila! Your Kentucky Coffee is ready.
There is no better match than the combination of Wild Turkey Bourbon and the brand's honey liqueur. The sweetness and the flavor is brought up subtly which is why this version of coffee is a hit among whiskey lovers.
If you are more of a curious soul and looking for ways to experiment, its best to choose one that has a similar flavor and quality. Knob Creek and Dry Fly Bourbon 101 can be the best alternative.
Evan Williams Honey Reserve can be used as a better alternative which has a nice whiskey base. Barenjager which is a German honey liqueur is a better option too. It has a mish mash of rustiness and refinement with a bit of Kentucky like persona.
The key to your success lies in preparing a thick and rich coffee. Use a freshly ground dark roasted beans on a French press.

Irish whiskey has a rich history, with its beginnings dating back to the 12th century. Around 1000 A.D., on return from their travels, monks brought back the art of distilling perfumes to Ireland and the Irish modified this technique to obtain a drinkable spirit. The whiskeys made during those times were not aged, but flavoured with aromatic herbs such as mint, thyme or anise.
