Based in Louisville, Kentucky, Michter'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 Pratt's exacting specifications, the US*1 range is only released when Willie and the Michter's tasting panel deem it ready.
Michter's No.1 Straight Rye
To say Michter's take production of America's oldest whiskey variety seriously is an understatement.
Made from select American rye grain that is sheared to maximise the extraction of flavour from the grain, every bottle of Michter's US*1 Rye comes from a single barrel. This commitment to quality ensures their Kentucky Straight Rye whiskey is of the absolute highest quality possible.
Nose: Fresh on the nose, with strong aromatics of rye spice, and a little mintiness. Very refreshing and approachable.
Palate: Soft and smooth, notably smoother than many ryes, in fact, this has great balance between the herbal spiciness of fennel and caraway seed and the creamy toffee notes from the cask.
Finish: Dry, spicy and clean.
