Michter’s 10 Year Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Rye
Chances are, you will never find this bottle selling for its $170 MSRP, nor will you likely encounter it on store shelves, such is the reputation it’s built up among whiskey collectors. If you do, however, and if you’re in a financial situation where you can afford any inevitable mark-up, the quality of this whiskey absolutely delivers. Tart, juicy cherry aromas meet wafts of fresh herbs on the nose, and continue well onto the finish. The palate serves layers of complex flavor, developed during a decade of oak maturation, while the silky texture and gentle spice further contribute to what is an incredible drinking experience. Worth the hype? You’ll bet it is.
