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!

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.

Erik,
My current favorite American style whisky. Using used barrels turns down the bitter oak I don’t care for in bourbon

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.

A little sweet but delicious. Vanilla, pistachio among other flavors.

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.
