Michter's US #1 Sour Mash Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1121679 93 points Wine Enthusiast

 Resurrected after 23 years, this smooth, buttery American whiskey is worth the wait. It has mellow vanilla and oak flavors, with a faint cherry essence on the long finish that seems to urge, 'stir up a few Manhattans already.' (KN)  (7/2013)

Wine & Spirits

 There hasn’t been a Michter’s distillery for some time now, until this new one recently sprang to life. That means the whiskey in the bottle comes from other producers, but it doesn’t make the whiskey inside Mitcher’s Sour Mash Whiskey any less delicious. Or mysterious. There is no age statement or mashbill to glean an indication of what it’s made from, but the taste suggests it’s a mix of Bourbon and rye, both of them taking dynamic turns providing flavors and aromas. Spicy and peppery, yet sweet with cherry and an almost mulled-cider quality, it’s a thing all its own, blazing its own path, hopefully into a Manhattan cocktail near you. (LB)  (12/2014)

K&L Notes

When my sales rep came in with an open sample, I acquiesced and did my duty. Wow! That's actually really good. There's something rather honeyed and slightly round about the Sour Mash that I quite enjoy. It's almost like Dickel #12, but without the woody, pencil shavings-like undertone. The more I taste whisky for a living, the more I feel like drinking things like the new Michter's after work when I get home. It's easy and delicious, yet with a flavor profile beyond what's readily available. It's pleasing to the senses and it doesn't really require me to focus much beyond that. (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits buyer)

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
