Michter’s US 1 Small Batch
Kentucky Straight Bourbon
The Michter’s brand name is a historic one – produced during the middle of the 20th century at the historic Bomberger’s Distillery in Schaefferstown, Pennsylvania (where whisky under many different names had been made since before the US Revolutionary War). Legends claim George Washington purchased cases of whisky from the same area that originated Michter’s to give to troops at Valley Forge. This earned it the nickname “The whisky that Warmed the American Revolution.” In December of 2013, they officially joined the Kentucky Distiller’s Association and became part of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail.
Aroma clearly has some dried fruit peach and apricot, with a hint of cinnamon. Rich notes of barley sugar and fresh bread.
Full of sugars and baked goods, while the middle of the tongue gets a hint of peppery spice.
Light and lingering. Notes of oak, white pepper, honey, peaches and raisins linger with the predominant flavour being the white pepper.
