Michter's Celebration Sour Mash 2016 WhiskeyMichters
Dark caramel leads on entry, followed by cocoa, orange, vanilla and hints of tobacco, nearly mirroring its aromas. A bit of heat arrives at mid-palate mingled with slightly assertive grain notes (the 33-year-old rye having a say), pronounced but balanced oak and milk chocolate revisit with grassy rye on the finish. Highly flavorful and a bit lean bodied, consistent with the house style of Michter’s whiskeys. Expectedly, the finish is robust with oak and a little grain. An exceptional sipper that delivers a complex collage of flavors and aromas that one won't recall from any other. Depending on your preference, this is the Cary Grant or the Grace Kelly of whiskeys, a pour of indisputable elegance, structure and balance.
Includes bottle #74 of Michter's Celebration Sour Mash 2016 Whiskey and one bottle of Michter's 10 Year Single Barrel Bourbon from Barrel 1G4924.
