michters-us-1-bourbon-whiskey

The US*1 Bourbon from Michter’s in Louisville, Kentucky, is made in small batches, typically comprised of no more than two dozen barrels. Usually aged for four to eight years.


Appearance: Dark amber/rust. A thick swirl mark with plenty of medium trails, droplets and teardrops. The film in the glass is lovely and viscous.

Nose: Plenty of cherry, oak and cinnamon. Honey and vanilla appear soon after.
Brown butter cookies and a little raspberry jam.

Palate: A semi-viscous mouthfeel and immediate cherry cola note. Oak appears soon after along with orange chocolate and cinnamon. A mineral element emerges as the dram matures.

Finish: Short to medium. Cherry, cinnamon and that mineral note last for a while.

Overall: A very drinkable bourbon. Nice flavours, well-balanced and pleasing. A great summer BBQ drink!
