This latest release from the Louisville, Kentucky based distillery, is said to deliver enhanced spice notes, delicate chocolate overtones, vanilla, honey, hints of roasted nuts and dates. Followed by a lingering finish of burnt brown sugar reminiscent of crème brûlée, complemented by smoky campfire highlights.
Commenting on the news, Andrea Wilson, Michter’s Master of Maturation, said: “For this release, we selected rye barrels aged to peak quality and then dumped each single barrel into a second barrel assembled from 24 month naturally seasoned and air-dried wood. The second barrel was custom toasted to create a rich and decadent rye whiskey experience.”
Distributed in the UK by Speciality Brands, Michter's US*1 Toasted Barrel Finish Rye 2020, is now available from specialist retailers in limited quantities, for a RRP of £98.00.
