Michter's US #1 Single Barrel Straight Rye Whiskey (750ml)
Crazy-sweet aroma, full of caramel, vanilla and a slight floral touch. The bite comes first (and lingers awhile), followed by vanilla, caramel, coconut flavors. It mellows considerably with ice, and becomes quite likeable, drinkable and mild.
The Michter's name has been synonymous with great whisky since the 1950s. That famous whisky, once distilled at the famous Schaefferstown Distillery in PA, is no longer, but the legacy lives on. Current owners Chatham Imports bottles under this historic name and have been doing so since the 1990s! One of the few non-distiller producers to have good stocks of Kentucky Bourbon and Rye at affordable prices considering the current market. The quality is good and the price is right even if they won't tell us who distilled!
