Member Reviews and Ratings of Michter's US*1 Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey
Smokey aroma. Sweet carmel and touch of smoke. Some cinnamon toward end before it finishes with lasting pepper notes. Def get the bourbon burn that lasts. Not the smoothest neat pour.
The dried fruit and the caramel cut nicely against the spice - I actually enjoyed this bourbon quite a bit and would recommend a bottle.
This is a good standard bourbon, a little kick with a smooth finish. Great alone or in an old fashioned.
With all the hype I've read about this I was looking forward to trying it. I was disappointed. I wouldn't place it among my 5 or 6 favorite bourbons, especially given the price.
Not the best I’ve had. Not enough flavor.
Definitely taste the spice to this. Black pepper hits me right away. Definitely has a kick to it but does have a smooth finish on the way down
Very Smooth, Quite tasty. I would recommend this bourbon for people try.
Currently my favorite.
Don't love it, but it's solid, middle-of-the-road; I feel like it's a little overpriced. Balanced; a little more spicy and bite than sweet and smooth. Fruity/sweet briefly up front, settles into bold spice/cinnamon; finishes sweet with hint of clove and some heat.
Smooth, taste, sweet, I like them like this. Would buy this again.
Very nice Bourbon. Smooth with a hint of chocolate
Very sweet, slightly spicy and a lot of vanilla, my first impression was "this is great." It is not a complex profile, but it is so very smooth. This is something that could easily replace one of my regulars...
Actually my first bourbon. I don’t feel like it can even remotely compare to whiskey I’m afraid. I suppose I will have to give it at least one more try before dismissing it but this one was not for me.
Spicy and warm notes make this a good staple symptoms sipping bourbon.
Great aroma...very smooth
Taste like a southern gentleman, smooth, sweet, and a little spicy at the end. The kind of drink you want to spend the night with
Not the best Michter's I've ever had but pretty good.
A little sweet upfront for my liking, but finishes with a nice spice. Worth purchasing.
The aroma catches you first once it’s opened..although it starts pretty strong, it smooths out nicely and has a spicy finish..with the price, it’s become a favorite go to bourbon..
One of the best values in the $25-50 range.
in a word - Yummy
Fruity smell and taste. Clean finish.
Solid, nice notes and flavors. Good solid sipper.
Full body. On the sweeter end so I enjoy it over a rock.
Citrus and Carmel on the nose with a nice spiced finish.
Nice. Short on the front, but good flavors and good finish come through. Flavor spiral is pretty spot on.
Very good bourbon; smooth with just the right warmth
The US1 is better. This is smooth finish but a harsh start. Pay less for better whiskey.
This was a pretty good tasting bourbon; however, it paled in comparison to Bookers, Bakers and Blantons. Just my thoughts.
Compared to several other bourbon's I've recently tried; this one seems more harsh, not very complex and I felt over priced. It did not leave a pleasant taste in my mouth.
Lots of flavor and refreshing taste at the end.
Excellent! A Great bourbon with a unique hint of its own magickal origins. A worthy salute to its creator's talents.
Smells great. As you inhale you can smell the hint of fruit and vanilla. The initial sip has a bit of a bite but not a harsh gasoline hit. It softens and mellows quickly allowing you to taste the spice and peppers giving with a somewhat smokey taste. A very nice whiskey worth sipping next to a fire on a cold day.
Good bourbon. If you can find the green Rye, get it. Never tried the sour mash
Favorite every-day bourbon!
Excellent flavor very smooth!
Michter's Bourbon Small Batch is exquisite
Michter's is my all time favorite. always smooth. doesn't burn badly. Perfect.
Lots of oak notes, smooth finish. Great whisky for the price, never disappoints.
Very smooth rye. Not too harsh, not too floral. Good flavor and body.
Smooth going down with no burn like others, great purchase
If you want a smooth drink then this is the one for you. Straight-up and enjoy!
One of the best I've tasted!
smells great and taste just as good if not better this is one I'm going to always want in my bar
Delicious! Very light taste all the way through.
My favorite Bourbon. Highly recommended to those who like a sweet smokey flavor with a little bit of kick.
A phenomenally smooth bourbon with great corn notes and full flavor
Straight out the bottle warm I don't recommend except for those that can handle the heat. Pour a glass throw in a single ice sphere and it is delicious. The Mrs stole a shot and poured it in her coke. After screaming sacrilege I tasted it and it tasted like cherry coke. I am really enjoying this bottle as a southern boy who does not drink in moderation.
One of the best of the grand master Kentucky craft bourbons in an American bursting at the seams with exciting new whiskeys. Once you're ready to take the training wheels off your tumbler and experience full-throttle flavor, this is your "I've arrived," bottle as a serious bourbon enthusiast.
This came very highly rated so I was disappointed. Just kind of clumsy--not well balanced. The alcohol over-powers the palate which is a little bland.
Smooth and clean. Give this bourbon about ten minutes in your glass to relax and air out then enjoy the rich and deep flavors
Absolutely my favorite Bourbon! Great flavors! I have higher end, more expensive, bourbons but, this is the one bourbon that goes into my decanters. Pick one up, well worth it!
Smells like s'mores - has a good taste.
Love this ... Hints of vanilla and a very easy drinking smooth bourbon
