Earlier this week, I posted my take on the tragic history of the original Michter's, an historic Pennsylvania distillery that was abandoned on Valentine's Day night in 1990. Below is a review of one of the "new" Michter's products, a sourced bourbon, reportedly from a large Kentucky distillery.
$45 at Liquor Barn in Lexington, KY
Color: Rich, medium amber.
Nose: Very pleasant, classic bourbon nose- caramel, vanilla, toasted oak, cinnamon, Werther's candies.
Tasting Notes: The sip eases into spice. Up front, I get caramel and sweet honey. Cinnamon and rye spice pop and tingle the tongue through a long finish.
