Michter’s 10 Year Old Bourbon Whiskey 750ml
Michter’s 10 Year Old Bourbon Whiskey
Aged in charred white oak American barrels for 10 years, for a special flavor that can only develop by aging for this long. Subdued and mellow, yet complex with spice.
Appearance: Classic medium caramel
Nose: Sweet and grainy: corn bread slathered in honey, johnnycakes with cherry jam. Fizzy cream soda mixed with a bit of varnish segues into warm leather and a hint of summer-warmed dry grass, which is amplified with water.
Palate: This is a very well-integrated whiskey with a lovely balance between creamy and spicy. There?s a full, rich, toffee sweetness throughout, balancing the earthy, humus-like bass notes in the mid palate. The finish is also very reminiscent of soda pop (root beer float? Cherry Coke?), almost giving the impression of carbonation, with a lingering muted spiciness. It?s extremely thick and coating. Water cuts that mouth feel, to its detriment.
