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 Bourbon
Michterâ€™s US *1 Bourbon is made from a carefully selected mashbill that features the highest quality American corn. It is then matured to the peak of perfection, with barrels often ageing in excess of eight years.
Truly â€œsmall batchâ€, each batch of Michterâ€™s US* 1 Bourbon is typically composed of no more than two dozen barrels, leaving no margin for â€œblending outâ€ imperfection and ensuring that each barrel is excellent.
Nose: Very rich and fruity on the nose, with sumptuous notes of dried fruit, raisins and barley sugar, countered by brioche and fennel.
Palate: Easy drinking and smooth mouthfeel, with a generous helping of sweet spice â€“ cinnamon and nutmeg â€“ along with refreshingly juicy fruit.
Finish: The richness remains, but thereâ€™s freshness in the form of black pepper that delivers a kick of spicy zing.
