Nose: It smells like eucalyptus layered over honey and peach.
Palate: Tastes like an apple pie made with cinnamon and licorice. Eucalyptus returns on the mid palate for a pleasant little ride we're dying to try in a Manhattan.
Finish: The whiskey kind of splays out on the finish, belying its spice front to become a little fruity and sweet.
Michter's Single Barrel Straight Rye 25 Years Old
Barrel No. 102
117.3 proof (58.65 percent alcohol)
Appearance: The color is exceedingly dark, a deep amber, verging on chocolate. Drips down the glass slow and thick.
Nose: A mighty aroma of tantalizing caramel, butterscotch, vanilla and fruit is beguiling.
Palate: It explodes with tang in the mouth, with the first thrush being licorice. As it calms it turns to fruitier flavors with some wood. Quite a challenging mouthful.
