Whiskey from one of America’s oldest distilleries.  
 
Hailing from Louisville, Kentucky Michter’s is one of the oldest distilleries in the States. Their Master Distiller, Willie Pratt, has been in and around the whiskey industry for over forty years, he is lovingly referred to as Dr. No as he will never allow any casks to be released or bottled until they are just right.

Matured in Bourbon soaked, American white oak barrels, this unblended American Whiskey is a great homage to Michter’s long legacy. This expression has not appeared on shelves for three years and is making a great comeback. The flavor profile is fruity and sweet. It combines a distinct vanilla undertone with bursts of fresh fruit throughout. The sweetness of the wood really comes through, with this vanilla developing into caramel and red apples. For those who enjoy their Whiskey thick with saccharine fruitiness, this is the dram for you!

Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but a final filter through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates Tennessee Whiskey from its Kentucky cousin. The finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.

Makes the best Manhattans.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Delicious aroma and taste. A lot of vanilla and caramel. Enjoyable neat or in an old fashioned.
 
Andy
Andy,
I did not think much of my initial taste/pour. The next pour was amazing. All the notes you hear about, caramel, vanilla, pine and sweet on the nose. The taste became sweet bananas with caramel with a spicy finish. Love it
 
Michael
Michael,
Very nice. Classic bourbon with just a touch of a savory note that separates it from the masses.
 
Brian
Brian,
One of the smoothest to drink on the rocks
 
Thomas

Excellent whiskey, priced perfect, would recommend to anyone for an everyday sipper.

Smooth flavor and carmels
 
Chris
Chris,
One of my favorites. Woody and grassy, but with undertones of caramel, vanilla and barrel spice
 
Ronald
Ronald,
Solid, heavy green Apple, Carmel, confectionary sugar, hint of banana. I like eyes so this is a little sweet for my taste but makes for a nice change of pace. Not a heavy whiskey.
 
Robert
Robert,
incredibly easy to drink perfect for a porch drink on a hot day with a king cube. Lighter bodied vanilla sent with amazing finish.
 
Brent
Brent,
Good option for a switch from straight bourbon. i tend to drink higher proof whiskeys but this did not disappoint.
 
James
James,
Similar taste as the bourbon, which isn’t a bad thing
 
Kurt
Kurt,
It's good. Pretty sweet compared to most whiskey and seems almost watered down. Very easy to drink and enjoyable but doesn't the wow factor some reviews seem to think in my opinion.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Love this whiskey! Full of flavor and bounces around the mouth with different notes of flavor
 
Philip
Philip,
Caramel and Lots of Vanilla. Some oak on the nose. Very enjoyable.
 
Angel
Angel,
Finishing bourbon in used bourbon barrels... what a concept. Low abv. (41%) no matter. Flavor makes up for this ten fold. Vanilla, pecan pie, mild pepper heat. Extremely pleasing and a great gateway into American Whiskey.
 
Dustin
Dustin,
This bottle was delicious. Strong forward vanilla/sweet flavor but finishes really clean. Excellent neat or on the rocks. Very pleased, will purchase again.

Michters doesn’t disappoint. All of their stuff is amazingly.

Sotirios,
Great whiskey!!! Really sweet on the nose and pallet. This gem surprise the sh*t out of me. Did not expect it to be as good as it is.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Wow. This was excellent, maybe more impressive than any whiskey I have tried.
 
Seth
Seth,
This is now one of my very favorite American whiskys. So mellow and drinkable. Vanilla cream and caramel but not as sweet as a bourbon. Really really enjoying this. Much better than the US-1 bourbon
 
Dan
Dan,
This was one of my favorite bourbons ever. I wish I was more knowledgeable about all the nuances of flavors and such. All I can really say was I thought it was great.
 
Caylin
Caylin,
Enjoyed this bottle. Good mixed and straight. Straightforward and smooth with ice.
 
Scott
Scott,
Strong vanilla flavor. Used in an Old Fashion with oil from oranges yields a pleasant orange creme flavor in the drink.
 
Dick
Dick,
A wonderful pour. Very smooth and balanced
 
Seth
Seth,
This is my second favorite drink. Taste very close to Pendleton’s 1910.
 
Chris
Chris,
Absolutely wonderful!! Might take the lead over the Michter’s Straight Rye in my Michter’s collection.
 
Eric
Eric,
Great balance of fruits and spice. Bold flavor with a sweet finish.

Smooooth.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
If you're not into smoke, bitterness, and serious burn, this is for you. A very approachable whiskey with a hint of barrel flavor. Sweet and simple with a lower ABV that won't light your insides on fire, although, I do look for that effect sometimes. This is simple and to the point. Very drinkable!
 
Peter
Peter,
Vanilla and apple on the nose. very smooth and a great finish!
 
Scott

Aaron,
This is a very good whiskey for the price. This bottle drinks like a high proof bourbon without the heat. Very smooth and delicious.
 
Conner
Conner,
Thoroughly enjoying this bottle right now. Great flavor up front with just enough sweetness without being overbearing. Finishes smooth with a spiced caramel aftertaste. Will be a consistent addition to my liquor cabinet for sure!

John
John,
I know the word “smooth” is over used when describing whiskey, but this really is that. Definitely considering this as my daily sipper from now on.
 
Ben

Dessert in a glass.
 
Logan
Logan,
Great whiskey. Lots of vanilla, caramel, apple and some oak.
 
Alan
Alan,
Bourbon, but better. Matured like Scotch in used bourbon barrels you get more grain and less barrel in the end. A favorite in our house.

Paul
Paul,
I like that it has an almost amaretto aftertaste.
 
Fred
Fred,
Best part of this whiskey is that it is smooth and has a distinct identity. It is not your average bourbon and not your average scotch. It exists somewhere perfectly in the middle. My wife, who is not a whiskey drinker loves this and saves it for special occasions.
 
David
David,
Solid blended American whiskey. Lower proof but great flavors. Little burn.

Favorite regular drinking whiskey. Caramel, brown sugar, smooth

Nice blend of sweet and spicy. Price is a little too steep for 83 proof though.

A good Michters product. I slight taste bananas, which may be odd. Love it!
 
David
David,
It used to be easy to find and then everyone figure out how good it was. No I can’t find it anywhere. But I found it here! It’s a great whiskey is just enough flavor that it’s not harsh. But makes you want for more. It’s got a little burn but I’m a good way, but it all comes together with a smooth finish.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Extremely smooth bourbon with very nice finish
 
Parker
Parker,
Delicious. I like it better than the Michter's bourbon. Taste some vanilla and green apple.
 
Koroun
Koroun,
This was a phenomenal selection that paired well with my medium-full bodied cigars.
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
If I won the lottery, I would have cases of this stacked next to cases of Blanton’s. It’s THAT good. Both on the rocks, maybe a tiny touch of water depending on how I feel.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Amazing! The best whiskey I’ve had yet...
 
Dwight
Dwight,
Fresh vanilla with pieces of red apple. As American as Apple Pie. Delightful sipper
 
Brian
Brian,
This one truly is America's #1 whiskey. A must for your home bar. Every month I'd get a bottle . Well....that is until Flaviar quit stocking it......
 
Brad
Brad,
Fantastic work. Loved every drop. Dang shame it was small batch. Makes it harder to come by to reorder.
 
Sam
Sam,
Not bad but can’t see buying again with so many better options out there
 
Paige
Paige,
A truly great American Whiskey! Brown sugar, vanilla and apples are abundant on the nose. Fresh fruits, a mild spice and oak follow on the palate while more vanilla, caramel and cherries complete the mellow and short finish. Easy sipper and crafted quite well!

Great drinking whiskey
 
guest
guest,
Oh my what a whiskey! Butterscotch, vanilla cream with just a hint of oak. Smooth and I would say closer to a scotch than a bourbon (IMO) but all in all a fantastic treat that I believe at $35-45 is a must!
 
Anthony
Anthony,
by far... the standard of what whiskey should taste like! Dollar for Dollar the BEST available!!!
 
Russell
Russell,
Always one of my favorites. Consistently excellent and this did not disappoint..
 
Elisabeth
Elisabeth,
This whiskey was incredibly watered down and almost flavorless for us. Great for novice whiskey drinkers, terrible for connoisseurs.
 
Richard
Richard,
Love it! Bought a second bottle much sooner than I should have considering I'm the only one drinking it.
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
So this is a tough one. If my only experience with this whiskey was at home or a bar, I would rate it a bit lower, probably 5. It's preposterously sweet. Not in a bad way necessarily, but much sweeter than I normally enjoy. So sweet it's hard to believe there's no flavoring added (although I know the good folks at Michters would never do such a thing!). So why a 7? This might be a top 3 camping whiskey. Shared around a fire on a cold evening with friends and family after dinner, stars above, this one comes into its own. For that reason I normally have a bottle on hand. So experience is influencing the score here but it's an experience I recommend...if you're into that sort of thing.
 
Hugh
Hugh,
Wasn't my favorite, but I'll try it again
 
Michael
Michael,
So far the Michters have surprised me the most in the smoothness and the sweet flavor is just right as it still provides the classic flavor with hardly any sharp bite. And the flavors last even after the swallow due to the sweetness.
 
George
George,
For some reason I just can't get on board with this one. Out of the 30 or so bourbons in my cabinet this one is an enigma to me, I cannot put my finger on what it is but the flavor profile is very unpleasant. I wanted to like it more but it just isn't for me.
 
Pete
Pete,
Easy to drink with a pleasant nutty finish. Decent mixer for an Old Fashioned or Whiskey Sour. Not overly complex, but a good, well-rounded whiskey. If I could give it half points, it's more of a 6.5.
 
Mike
Mike,
Much better than it should be at its price point.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Ok so I’ve had Michters Burbon and I really liked that one and this is the second offering of theirs I have enjoyed. Initially I wasn’t crazy about it because I didn’t get the dark sweet caramel sugar like I usually like with Burbon but wait... Do I detect apples? Oh there’s the sugar but it’s much lighter, oh but it gets darker... Hard to explain but this one whiskey starts off light and floral but seems to move to a darker sweetness. It’s taken me half a bottle to really appreciate what I have, I find this to be complex floral sweet and just damn wonderful. I would love to try their toasted barrel and Rye variations and just for the hell of it another bottle of their Burbon.
 
Richard
Richard,
One of my all time favorite Whiskeys.
 
Gordon
Gordon,
It’s like melting a vanilla jelly bean covered in butter in your mouth. Michters can do no wrong, and this may be my favorite. Staple in my house
 
Austin
Austin,
Smooth whiskey. Good flavor.
 
William
William,
Flavorful bourbon with a buttery texture. Great for sipping neat.
 
Andy
Andy,
If ever you find this buy it and buy an extra because you will smoke through your first bottle so fast that you will wish you had another! Smooth and spicy this is excellent neat or with an ice cube for a different flavor. Easy drinking and something to be savored.
 
Scott
Scott,
A sweet and spicy treat, I will be keeping a bottle on the shelf at all times...
 
garrett
garrett,
This American Whiskey is excellent. Drink it neat but let it sit out in the glass for a little bit so it really comes alive. I get vanilla and caramel notes with a smooth finish that does not linger too long. I have tried their bourbon and found it a bit too harsh for me. This one has definitely earned a permanent place in my home bar.
 
Steve
Steve,
This is a nice whiskey.
 
Maria
Maria,
Sweet and smooth, nice caramel and vanilla flavor.
 
John

Very straight forward and tasty.
 
Bryan

Smooth, great flavor profile
 
Scott
Scott,
Holy Apples! Lovely fruity/sweet nose & taste. A previous commenter mentioned this should only be enjoyed on its own & neat - I agree 100%. One of the finest American whiskeys I've had.
 
Lisa
Lisa,
I absolutely loved this!!! It is smooth and truly worth checking out. I am normally a bourbon chick but wow, this was a big eye opener and will definitely be a regular!
 
Roger
Roger,
I really like this michter's unblended, Its well worth a try if you haven’t had the pleasure of it. Its so so good.
 
Erik
Erik,
My current favorite American style whisky. Using used barrels turns down the bitter oak I don’t care for in bourbon
 
Richard
Richard,
One of my favorites. Vanilla cream on the front and hint of spice on the back. Do not put this in a cocktail. This deserves to be enjoyed neat. Whenever I can find a bottle, it ends up in my house but doesn't hang around for long.
 
Blake
Blake,
A little sweet but delicious. Vanilla, pistachio among other flavors.
 
Cody
Cody,
One of my favorites, the creamy vanilla flavor followed by the spicy peppery finish is fantastic! Hard to find in my area, always grab a bottle when I can.
 
Lou
Lou,
10/10 bourbon. Heavy and dark sweet notes on the nose, nice mouthfeel, great finish. Sweet and fruity throughout. Delicious!
Aaron
Aaron,
Not technically a bourbon. I think they age this in already used bourbon barrels so it doesn't qualify. Just mentioning in case you were trying to rate their bourbon instead of this.
