Michter’s US *1 Unblended American Whiskey

Michter’s US *1 Unblended American Whiskey bottle

70cl, 41.7% ABV

Unlike Bourbon or Rye, which, by definition, must be aged in new oak barrels, Michter's US*1 Unblended American Whiskey is aged using bourbon-soaked barrels to achieve a rich and unique flavour profile.

Deeming it "the best it's ever been", Master Distiller Willie Pratt agreed to re-release the US* 1 Unblended American Whiskey in 2013, after a nearly three-year absence from the market.

Tasting Notes

Nose

Quite sweet on the nose, with stone fruits, barrel char and a creamy, buttery note. There’s also sweet spices and orange citrus aromas.

Palate

Pleasant spiciness, predominantly tobacco and leather, while butterscotch and caramel sweetness balances everything, as does the soft fruit and oaky notes.

Finish

Medium length, with the spices lingering the longest.

Comment

A well-balanced whiskey that starts with layers of aromatic fruit, then is bolstered with toasty spice. Easy to drink.
