The Louisville, Kentucky based Michter’s Distillery, has announced the rerelease of its 25 Year Old Bourbon.
Michter’s 25 Year Old (58.1% ABV) is a Kentucky Straight Bourbon, which was matured in charred new American white oak barrels.

The barrels used for what is one of the distillery’s rarest releases, were personally selected by Michter’s Master Distiller Dan McKee and Michter’s Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson.
Michter’s 25 Year Old, is said to deliver notes of mollases, baking spices, chocolate, roasted nuts, dried fruits, melted butter and vanilla.
The release follows the news of Mitcher’s being named as The World’s Most Admired Whiskey by Drinks International, as part of its annual Top 50 list. It’s the first time an American whiskey brand has topped the chart, which is compiled of votes from an independent group of whisky experts.
Commenting on the launch, Andrea Wilson, said: “This release of the 25 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon is an outstanding Flavors experience without the overly oaked, dusty old whiskey character. It is a wonderful journey with its transition through sweet and Savory depth, world spices, dark chocolates, fruit characters and nut oils almost as if you are eating through a box of fine chocolates. It is an exceptional whiskey for an exceptional achievement in the whiskey world.”
Michter’s 25 Year Old, will be available later this month from specialist retailers in the US, for a RRP of $1,500.
