Released in small quantities and spurts since 2014, this will not last long! The pinnacle of the Michter’s lineup, this rare ten-year-old rye is a complex whiskey with spicy, nutty flavors. We were in awe of the cascading flavors of mocha, honey, and soft, toasted Oak. Long, luscious and incredibly sexy, this one struts across your palate with the grace of a Victoria's Secret Angel.
As super-spirits critic F. Paul Pacult noted, it's 'A tour de force rye whiskey that delivers on every level.
Michter's began distilling whiskey in Schaefferstown, Pennsylvania since 1753 - that's long before Kentucky was even settled and over twenty years before the Declaration of Independence was signed. The distillery changed hands several times over the next two hundred years until one Adolf H. Hirsch, a former executive of the Schenley Co., bought some aged stocks of the whiskey from the 1960's and bottled a 16-year-old and a 20-year-old under the A.H. Hirsch label - two of the most highly coveted whiskies in the last century. Unfortunately, Michter's Distillery closed in 1988 after making the only post-Prohibition pot still Bourbon in America. Today, Master Distiller Willy Pratt moved this American heritage brand to Kentucky, where he bottles rare whiskies distilled according to the Michter's tradition and high quality standards.
