To say Michter's take production of America's oldest whiskey variety seriously is an understatement.

Tasting Notes

Nose

Fresh on the nose, with strong aromatics of rye spice, and a little mintiness. Very refreshing and approachable.

Palate

Soft and smooth – notably smoother than many ryes, in fact – this has great balance between the herbal spiciness of fennel and caraway seed and the creamy toffee notes from the cask.

Finish

Dry, spicy and clean.

Comment

Refined for a rye, this is complex and characterful.
