I spy Bourbon or Rye, something beginning with “S”
That’s right, neither. We’re talking about Sour Mash Whiskey. Michter’s to be exact. Established in 1753 by John Shenk in Pennsylvania’s Blue Mountain Valley, they’re one of the oldest active distilleries in the United States. Teaming up with Michter’s President Joseph J. Magliocco in the 1990s, Richard “Dick” Newman resurrected the brand in Louisville, KY, where Michter’s have been bottling their exquisite Whiskeys, Bourbons and Ryes ever since.
Michter’s Original Sour Mash was their most popular product during the 1970s and 80s, and now it’s back with a vengeance. Joining their US*1 line in 2012, this Whiskey stays true to the profile and palate of its predecessor. Michter’s dubbed its champion after the Spirit’s production process, in which previously fermented mash is used as the starter for the new batch. Like making sourdough bread, except better. Because it’s Whiskey.

Although its unique grain selection prevents it from being categorized as Bourbon or Rye, it doesn’t stop Michter’s US*1 Sour Mash from starting off like the former and finishing like the latter. It’s Michter’s way of masterfully pushing their mash bill envelope right to the edge of the Rye realm, without tipping over. Great to sip on its own, Sour Mash Whiskey is also perfect for a Bourbon based cocktail or a BBQ sauce ingredient to pour over your chicken on a hot summer’s day.

Bourbon set of rules refer to manufacturing method rather than location. It must be matured in new and charred casks of American white oak. No colouring or flavouring of any type is allowed. It must be matured for at least 2 years, if a bottle does not bear an age it is at least 4 years old. The mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
Stone fruit, spice notes, with a touch of floral and a light oak.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
An ascension from sweet, smoky fruits, gliding towards flavors of caramel and honeyed vanilla. 
A hotter Rye-like finish with lingering fruit and floral notes of the start.
Ratings & Reviews
Good stuff
Another Fantastic Whiskey from Michter's. Not quite as aged as their celebration selection but you can tell this Sour Mash was created painstakingly with respect to the starter that it came from. Smooth but filled with character, and priced similarly to the other fantastic Michter's US*1 Range. The rye is still my favorite from them and I'm looking forward to hunting for Toasted Barrel expressions in the near future!
great sipping whiskey. smooth. love all the michter's
Fantastic flavor! The best of the Michter's American Whiskey and Michter's Bourbon.
Great! Another hit for Michter’s
Had it Neat. A nice sweet start with a good oaky earthy finish. Great choice for every day sipping drink.
