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 ever to achieve this honour. This award-winning whiskey is at the heart of our Toasted Barrel Sour Mash Whiskey. It is made by taking Michter’s US1 Sour Mash Whiskey and then aging it for an additional period of time in a second custom-made barrel. This second barrel is assembled from 18-month air-dried wood and then toasted but not charred. Several different levels of toast for the second barrel were evaluated before our production team, led by Master Distiller Dan McKee and Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson, decided on the one that would best display the elegant nuances of this remarkable whiskey.

Tasting notes 

  • Nose: Floral honey, Hard spices, stone fruit and Grain
  • Palate: Creamed honey, Candied citrus peels, Milk chocolate, and crème brulée.
  • Finish: Rye spice and fruit with charred orange.
