Country: USA, Tennessee
America’s oldest whiskey variety
Michter’s US1 Kentucky Straight Rye is made from select American rye grain that is sheared to maximize the extraction of flavor from the grain.
Ideal neat or in cocktails, every bottle comes from a single barrel – a unique attribute reflecting our extraordinary commitment to offering Kentucky Straight Rye whiskey of the absolute highest quality at every level of the Michter’s range.
Aroma: The nose is aggressive and volatile, smelling of acetone, clove, brown sugar and a faint whiff of raw almond.
Taste: This rye is quite hot and hard to ‘Kentucky chew.’ A drop of water helps the tongue detect more than just heat! Apricot, cereal sweetness and black pepper bloom on the palate.
Finish: Banana and black tea dominate the finish.
