Upon its being named “Whisky Of The Year” for 2019 by The Whisky Exchange, Michter’s US1 Sour Mash Whiskey became the first whiskey made in the United States to ever achieve this honor.

JimMurray: 92

During the 1970s and 1980s, Michter’s Original Sour Mash was the distillery’s single most popular product. While the “Sour Mash” moniker originated from the whiskey production process of the same name – whereby some previously fermented mash is used as the starter for the new mash to be fermented, much like making sourdough bread – Michter’s Sour Mash earned distinction for its taste, combined with its unique grain selection. In fact, it can't really be categorised as a rye or a bourbon. In 2019, Michter’s US 1 Sour Mash was Awarded the world's best whisky by the Whisky Exchange.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Toasted Honey, Vanilla, Roasted spices and a touch of smoke and oak

Palate: a full-bodied whisky with creamed honey,  baking spice, oak.

Finish: Long and rich with a good amount of rye spice, helping to provide a lovely long finish
