Hailing from Louisville, Kentucky Michter’s is one of the oldest distilleries in the States. Their Master Distiller, Willie Pratt, has been in and around the whiskey industry for over forty years, he is lovingly referred to as Dr. No as he will never allow any casks to be released or bottled until they are just right.
Matured in Bourbon soaked, American white oak barrels, this unblended American Whiskey is a great homage to Michter’s long legacy. This expression has not appeared on shelves for three years and is making a great comeback. The flavor profile is fruity and sweet. It combines a distinct vanilla undertone with bursts of fresh fruit throughout. The sweetness of the wood really comes through, with this vanilla developing into caramel and red apples. For those who enjoy their Whiskey thick with saccharine fruitiness, this is the dram for you!
Smell / Nose / Aroma - Brown sugar and thick caramel, with red apples and grapes.
Flavor / Taste / Palate - Rich vanilla with a slight spiciness to it, more apples and bursts of banana.
Finish - Lingers just enough, vanilla and hints of sweet oak wood.
