Michter’s has released their coveted 10-year-old rye whiskey for the first time in more than a year. The single barrel expression consistently ranks among my favorite rye whiskies. Just like the last time, Michter’s 10-year-old rye barrels were selected by Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson and approved by Master Distiller Pamela Heilmann.
Michter’s 10-Year Rye (2018) Whiskey Tasting Notes
Nose: The nose on this whiskey always – dark, rich caramels with an abundance of baking spices like nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon.
Palate: Layers and layers of dark caramel wash over the front palate as those lovely spice notes ramp up in intensity.
Finish: The finish is soothing and lengthy.
Bomberger’s Distillery, more recently Michter’s Distillery, is a non-operating distillery facility that was, at the end of the twentieth century, believed to be the oldest remaining such building in the United States. The distillery closed in 1989 and may have since been demolished.
