Michter’s US*1 Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon – 2018 Edition (45.7% ABV) has been produced by aging Michter's US*1 Kentucky Straight Bourbon, for an additional period in a second custom made barrel. The second barrel is assembled from 18-month air dried wood and then toasted, but not charred.

Originally launched in 2014 to great aclaim, Michter's US*1 Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon, has had a three-year hiatus due to whiskey shortages at the Michter's Distillery.
Commenting on the launch, Joseph J. Magliocco, Michter's President, said: "We need to allocate our whiskeys because we just don't have enough to meet demand. Because of the goods situation we debated whether to do this release. In the end we made the decision to make some Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon for our loyal customers who have been clamouring for it."
Commenting on the bourbon, Andrea Wilson, Michter's Master of Maturation, said: "It's remarkable how the character of our US*1 Bourbon can be transformed by some extra time in a barrel skilfully toasted to our particular specifications."
Michter’s US*1 Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon – 2018 Edition, will be released next month on a limited basis, to tie in with Bourbon Heritage Month. RRP $60,00 – 750ml.
