MICHTERS US-1 SMALL BATCH SOUR MASH WHISKEY 750 86PF

If you arenít familiar with the Michterís name already, it is one of the oldest brands of American whiskey in existence. Originally coming from Pennsylvania since 1753, this long surpasses the production of whiskey in Kentucky by many years. Although the original PA distillery closed in 1988, the Michterís name and unique pot-stilled whiskeys are still alive today (now in Kentucky). The original Michterís Sour Mash was a thriving and popular whiskey throughout the 1970s and 1980s. This marks the first release of this revered whiskey in over 20 years! It is very similar in style to that of bourbon and rye whiskey except that is made with a unique and different grain-bill (approximately 50% corn and the rest being rye with a small amount of barley for fermentation unlike bourbon which needs to be a minimum of 51% corn). The whiskey is also aged in fire-charred American oak barrels like that of a bourbon or rye whiskey. This makes it a sort of bourbon/rye hybrid, if you will. The flavors are still chock full of vanilla, stewed fruits and butterscotch like that of a bourbon. Then the rye character comes through with a spicy ginger note. Smooth and easy to sip with lingering complexity abound. Michterís Original Small Batch Sour Mash is fantastic whiskey for bourbon and rye whiskey enthusiasts alike.
