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 Michter's US*1 Small Batch Sour Mash 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.
Nose: Stone fruit, spice notes, with a touch of floral and light oak.
Palate: An ascension from sweet, smoky fruits, gliding towards flavors of caramel and honeyed vanilla.
Finish: A hotter Rye-like finish with lingering fruit and floral notes of the start.
Cheers, and enjoy this whiskey!
