Michter’s US*1 Bourbon is made from a carefully selected mashbill that features the highest quality American corn. It is then matured to the peak of perfection, with barrels often aging in excess of eight years. Truly “small batch,” each batch of US*1 Bourbon is typically composed of no more than two dozen barrels, leaving no margin for “blending out” imperfection and thus necessitating excellence from every barrel. Reflecting the spirit of the Bluegrass State, Michter’s US*1 Kentucky Straight Bourbon is nuanced, mellow, and earthy.
Aroma of apricots, nutty dough and cracked pepper, along with notes of sweet corn and vanilla on the palate. Finish is well-balanced, and ends with notes of raisins and plums.
