Michter's US*1 Small Batch Sour Mash Whiskey

Michter's US*1 Small Batch Sour Mash Whiskey


The "Sour Mash" derives its name from the American Whiskey production process whereby previously fermented 'mash' (a solution of grain and water which forms the base for all whiskies) is used as the starter for the new mash to be fermented - much like making sourdough bread. 
With Michter's unique grain selection, this whiskey is neither Rye (which must legally contain 51% of the mash bill) nor Bourbon (51% corn), but that didn't stop it being named "Whisky of The Year" in 2019 by The Whisky Exchange!  The Sour Mash process itself ensures consistency, so it's unsurprising this continues to be one of the tastiest American Whiskies on the market.

Tasting note:  Warm toasted burnt sugar notes, with spice, sweet, smoky fruit, candied cherries, and honeyed vanilla.  Sweet biscuity, floral and peppery touches appear on the long finish.
