Michter's US Number 1 Small Batch Bourbon (70cl, 45.7%)
Get to know: Michter's US Number 1 Small Batch Bourbon
Very fine small batch Kentucky bourbon from Michter's here. You find rich caramel, with balanced vanilla, stone fruit notes, smoky depth and an oaky finish. This has a smooth, rich mouthfeel and is a very rewarding sip.
Made from a carefully selected mashbill that features the highest quality American corn and fire-charred, new American oak barrels. Although the typical industry entry proof is 125 proof, Michters believe that the lower 103 proof (51.5% ABV) level – which was historically regarded as the gold standard in Kentucky – allows for the concentrated sugars in the toasted and charred wood to dissolve more readily into the distillate as it cycles in and out of the barrel. Even though the lower entry proof yields fewer bottles per barrel, they believe that the smooth flavor and richer mouthfeel makes it worth it.
