Tasting Notes and Scores
Michter's Rye Whiskey is made primarily of fresh, plump rye grains. Once the grains are harvested, they are sheared so that during fermentation, the grains are saturated with more flavour.
The barrels are allowed to rest in a heat-cycled warehouse, which forces the wood to expand and contract as the temperature rises and falls. This heat cycling causes the whiskey and wood to mingle with each other, and contributes notes of marmalade and light caramel to the rye. Once Willie Pratt - Michter's Master Distiller - determined that the rye had reached its peak flavour, each single-barrel bottle was filled and sealed by hand.
With a classic spicy nose of dark fruits, rye bread and vanilla, the palate is sweet and warming with citrus, baked cinnamon, caramel and toffee.
