Based in Louisville, Kentucky, Michterâ€™s offers a range of highly acclaimed, super-premium Ryes, Bourbons, and American Whiskeys.
The US*1 expressions honour Michter's heritage and consist of some of the finest small batch whiskeys available today. Distilled to Master Distiller Willie Prattâ€™s exacting specifications, the US*1 range is only released when Willie and the Michter's tasting panel deem it ready.
Michterâ€™s No.1 Unblended American Whiskey
Unlike Bourbon or Rye, which, by definition, must be aged in new oak barrels, Michter's US*1 Unblended American Whiskey is aged using bourbon-soaked barrels to achieve a rich and unique flavour profile.
Deeming it "the best it's ever been", Master Distiller Willie Pratt agreed to re-release the US* 1 Unblended American Whiskey in 2013, after a nearly three-year absence from the market.
Nose: Quite sweet on the nose, with stone fruits, barrel char and a creamy, buttery note. Thereâ€™s also sweet spices and orange citrus aromas.
Palate: Pleasant spiciness, predominantly tobacco and leather, while butterscotch and caramel sweetness balances everything, as does the soft fruit and oaky notes.
Finish: Medium length, with the spices lingering the longest.
