Buy Michter’s Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon
Michter’s sour mash upon its being named whisky of the year for 2019 by the whisky exchange, Michter’s US*1 Sour Mash whiskey became the first whiskey made in the United States to ever achieve this honor. Michter’s sour mash is this award winning whiskey that is at the heart of our Toasted Barrel Sour Mash Whiskey. On the palate there are toffee and buttery vanilla notes up front with fragrant honey, milk chocolate, and a hint of orange peel mid palate the toasty campfire notes appear and intensify the cherry and spice notes in this elegant whiskey. While the distillery has released Toasted Barrel Bourbon and Toasted Barrel Rye in the past, this will be the first time they’ve finished their Sour Mash Whiskey in their specially made toasted barrels. The type of toasted barrel used by Michter’s depends on the whiskey being finished inside. The most recent Michter’s US*1 Toasted Barrel Finish Rye Whiskey, according to those behind it, is created by taking fully matured Michter’s US*1 Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Rye at barrel strength and then further aging it in a second custom barrel made to the specifications set by Michter’s Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson.
