Meet Willie Pratt. He’s the Master Distiller over at Michter’s in Louisville, Kentucky—one of the oldest distilleries in the States. You might know him better as Dr. No… and with good reason. See, he’s earned himself quite the reputation over at Michter’s. He refuses to allow any casks to be released or bottled until they’re just right. Which means that these Bourbons are typically aged longer than the juice coming from other producers.
This bottle right here is no exception. Produced in very small batches (typically less than 24 barrels per batch) and aged for 10 years, every single drop here comes from just one barrel. Long story, short: get on this ASAP.

Member Reviews and Ratings of Michter's 10 Year Old Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey
Extremely smooth bourbon whiskey; very easy to sip. A lot of cherry on the palate with an earthy, but sweet, finish. I wish this was bottled at higher proof, but still excellent. (Barrel 19H1366)
Absolutely love this bourbon
Very smooth and enjoyable single-barrel. Excellent quality
Super smooth with a caramel finish. Very nice
some of the smoothest bourbon I've ever had
Great bottle of bourbon. While I do prefer the rye 10 yr this one is quite special.
This is so frikken good. Ruined me for standard fare bourbon.
Buy it if you see it. This is hands down my favorite bourbon. I find it very complex and full of flavor.
Super smooth and great tasting bourbon!
I did this tasting as a part of a blind tasting against a woodford double oaked, weller special reserve, and sonoma county cherrywood rye going down and back (shout out to bourbon junkies for giving me the idea). The Michter's 10 was a 2016 year.
First time down there was a bit of a sweet woody nose which matched the taste of a sweet beginning and then heavy oak finish.
The way back after about a 5 minute break I had hints of licorice and sweet noses but the flavor completely transformed into spice and bark, which makes sense to me given the extra time with the wood. Overall this is still one of my all time favorite whiskeys and placed second in the blind taste test.
Definitely pricey for what it is. Considering their excellent small batch is around 40 and is failry easy to find in certain areas. The 10 is tough to get behind. It has a "cheap" oakey heaven hill quality to it that I am not a fan of in any bourbon. The nose is like cream soda and the finish is very smooth. It should cost what they used to charge for it because thats what it is. A 60 dollar bourbon. By all means buy one if your find it at msrp. I certainly dont regret it but am not sure how excited I will be to get another
I spent more time with it, let it breath and its not as oakey. Still quite bit of ethanol considering the price. Keep in mind this is 2020 batch and single barrel. Id agree this will be a "in the mood for it" rather than a daily type of drinker. Sort of glad I only got one.
Shocked the hell out of me. Members of my family smell whiskey and gag. This made them want some. The nose alone was fruity and sweet. Loved this surprise. And it’s affordable.
Simply amazing is all I have to say. Michters one the best.
Very nice bourbon, sweet, fruity, and oak.
Sweet & Citrus
Smooth, easy drinker. Another great product from Michter's.
Disappointed for the price. A very rough finish for such a prestigious selection
Was worth the hunt. Smooth and tasty.
Love this bottle
Very smooth. Fruity and delicious. Low heat finish.
Absolutely loved this bottle!
Much better than the US*1 Bourbon. And a great alternative to Old Rip Van Winkle 10. Not as good as the Rye though.
Great Bourbon, but very oak forward. You have to be in the mood for this one, but if you love that oak flavor profile this one is SMOOTH!! Wow it’s good, just need to be in the mood for it and it will make your night.
One of my favorite bourbons with all of the flavor notes that I love. Very smooth with really good complexity and sweet finish on your throat. I agree that it taste older than a 10 year bourbon.
Tastes better when it opens up. Suggest a drop or 2 of water and then it’s quite diverse.
rich flavor, SMOOTH, good on the rock!
The first time I bought this bourbon was early on in my bourbon drinking career and I had no idea what I purchased. I paid 60 dollars and when I tried it I was blown away. I went back to get more and there was one bottle left so I purchased it and after that I have not seen it in new york for under 150. It seems that any bottle that is above average the price triples and a lot of stores have them sitting on the shelves.
Thick, almost oily. Really smooth
Fantastic! My favorite Michter's expression. Very complex for 10 years old, drinks like a much older whiskey. Very smooth and easy to drink as well. Not a wallet friendly price point, but if you are a bourbon enthusiast, you will not regret picking up a bottle. Drink it neat! If you add ice or water the bourbon gods will smite you!
Excellent Burbon Neat. A bit pricy at $130 so i woudlnt pay more. It was great to have the bottle once but for $130 there are alot of others I would pick up in the $60-$80 range I think would be better.
Starts a little spicy. Add a drop of water to mellow it and open up the sweet warm aroma. Best enjoyed neat. Burnt caramel in the middle. Smooth long vanilla finish. Delicious. If you pay retail (about $130) it is a bargain...if you can find it.
