Michter's Single Barrel 10 Year Kentucky Straight Rye 10 year old
One of our most limited production items, Michter’s 10 Year Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Rye continues the legacy of America’s first whiskey variety (rye) from America’s first whiskey company (Michter’s, originally known as Shenk’s). After a nearly three year absence from the market, Michter’s then Master Distiller Willie Pratt finally gave the green light for the re-release of Michter’s 10 Year Straight Rye in April 2014.
COOPERAGE: Fire-charred, new American white oak barrels
TASTING NOTES: Deep notes of vanilla and toffee, toasted almonds and cinnamon with an ample dose of crushed pepper and a hint of orange citrus
BOTTLING STRENGTH: 92.8 proof (46.4% Alcohol by Volume)
Dark amber color, strongly and sweetly aromatic with hints of cigar tobacco and allspice. Pleasant, deep toffee flavors almost threaten to turn sweet, but the finish is brisk, brief and dry. Medium body.
