Tasting Notes

If you thought you didn't like bourbon, this is a good reason to give it another try. This one packs in all the great flavor--toasted corn, caramel and spice, but without being too sweet, overly charred tasting and none of that throat burn. Wonderfully smooth and tasty. A gem in the rough.

Staff Pick Notes

Cost be damned says Michter’s Distillery in regards to the process of creating their line of American whiskeys with how intricate each expression is. You see, Michter’s specifies their wood barreling to be as dry as possible to reduce the tannin levels imparted to the bourbon with enough charring to assist in adding concentrations of flavor and color through accessing the wood’s natural sugars. The bourbon upon entry is proofed at 103 so the wood’s sugars cycle more freely into the distillate, which does result in lower yields but is more viscous and richer. Let me not forget that it is only chilled filtration with Michter's. All this comes together to create a fusion of balanced sweetness of toffee, baking spice, toasted corn with a polished, tempered mouthfeel that speaks to taking a little more time to churn out some refined bourbon.
