Michter’s has been recognized by whiskey connoisseurs as truly extraordinary. In recent years, they’ve secured accolades such as “Best American Whiskey” by Food and Wine, “Spectacular” by Robert Parker, “Magnificent” by F. Paul Pacult, “Whisky of the Year” by The Whisky Exchange, “Best of the Best” by Robb Report, and “Distiller of the Year” by Wine Enthusiast.
With a tradition in Louisville dating back to 1753, Michter’s is very much in the middle of the American Whiskey history. Painstaking attention to details is what sets these guys apart- including details like yeast selection; fermentation temperatures; distillation; wood selection and drying of staves; toasting and /or charring of their barrels.
This particular Rye was rewarded with 94 points by Tasting Panel, but I’m not sure that’s even high enough. The US1 Kentucky Straight Rye is made from select American rye grain that is sheared to maximize the extraction of flavor from the grain. This one has great notes of oats and honey, complimented by creamy notes of caramel and butterscotch. So smooth and delicious, you would never know this is bottled at 84.8 Proof.
