94.4 proof (47.2 percent alcohol)
Appearance: Another deep amber color. Medium-width tear-drop legs take forever to release.
Nose: Again, this whiskey has a very maple bouquet. This time it is joined by hardwood and olive oil.
Palate: The maple candy persists on the palate, where we also find toast, licorice, walnuts, fruit and olive oil. Obviously, a quite complex whiskey.
Finish: Nuts and olive meet fruit on the finish in an interesting combination of savory and sweet.
Michter's Single Barrel Straight Rye 10 Years Old
