Michter's US*1 Toasted Barrel Finish Rye (ABV may vary)

Description:

While the Michter’s team distills according to tried and true Kentucky practices, they continually experiments as they pursue Michter’s goal of making the greatest American whiskeys. Following years of research on different barrel finishes for rye whiskey, we are proud to offer this release of our Michter’s US*1 Toasted Barrel Rye. To make it, Michter's takes their US*1 Kentucky Straight Rye at barrel strength and then ages 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 specification. The result is a unique rye whiskey that we take pride in offering to you. The strength of the majority of the barrels selected for the 2020 release ranges from 107.2 to 111.2 proof.
