Michter’s Plans Own Distillery in Louisville

The fabled Michter's brand of bourbon and rye finally gets a new home.
Jack Bettridge
Posted: December 16, 2011

(continued from page 2)

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

Barrel No. 9L-2

92.8 proof (46.4 percent alcohol)

Appearance: Medium amber in color, its legs are fat and slow.
