Michter's US*1 Small Batch American Whiskey, 41.7%

6 items left

Unlike the Michter's Bourbon or Rye which, by definition, must be aged in new oak barrels, the US*1 Unblended American Whiskey is matured in already-used barrels, much like a Scotch.  This allows it to achieve a rich and truly unique flavour.  And with the company's habitual commitment to high quality, this whiskey contains no neutral grain spirits - hence its "unblended" distinction.  All in all, a delicious American take on a more Scottish Whisky style.

Tasting note:  Soft and seductive, with deep butterscotch and vanilla notes, hints of caramel and dried tropical fruits, and a peachy, fresh, and floral finish.

About the distillery

Michter's distilling heritage traces back to 1753 when Swiss Mennonite farmer John Shenk founded the original whiskey company and distillery in the Pennsylvania Blue Mountain Valley.

Michter's more recent history, however, really begins in the 1990s when two men sought to revive the much loved (but sadly declined) brand down in Kentucky, the heartland of American Whiskey.

Their aim was simple: to honour the Michter's legacy by producing the best whiskey possible, cost be damned!

The Michter's range of US*1 Whiskies offer a truly delicious insight into the long history of the company, and indeed American Whiskey production.

Crafted using only the finest ingredients and traditional, costly techniques, there's a rich yet mellow character to these gorgeous whiskeys, which are hard to match for sheer enjoyability.

As John Mariani of Bloomberg points out, these are American Whiskeys whose elegance and complexity will stand up to any Scotch or Cognac drinkers palate.
