While the Michter’s team distills according to tried and true Kentucky practices, it continually experiments as it pursues Michter’s goal of making the greatest American whiskeys. Following years of research on different barrel finishes for rye whiskey, Michters are proud to offer this release of our Michter’s US1 Toasted Barrel Rye.

To make it they take their US1 Kentucky Straight Rye at barrel strength and then age it for an additional period in a second custom barrel. This second barrel is assembled from 24 month air-dried wood and then toasted to their specifications. The result is a unique rye whiskey that Michters take pride in offering to the market. The strength of the majority of the barrels selected for the 2020 release ranges from 107.2 to 111.2 proof.

Tasting notes:
Palate: Enhanced spice notes with delicate chocolate overtones balanced by honey and vanilla.

Finish: Lingering burnt brown sugar reminiscent of creme brulee and smokey campfire highlights.
