Michter’s devotees could have thought that the one restricted launch they needed to look ahead to in 2022 was the 10-year-old Single Barrel Rye, however this fall the distillery introduced again their US-1 Toasted Barrel End Bitter Mash Whiskey giving followers yet one more unicorn to chase. I can virtually hear the enthusiastic jingling of automotive keys and hurried calls to the native liquor retailer now. After a three-year hiatus, this whiskey is returning to retailer cabinets with about as a lot backstory as the original from 2019. Primarily, not a lot. US-1 Sour Mash Whiskey has lengthy been Michter’s most mysterious providing with a grain invoice that makes it not fairly a rye and never fairly a bourbon. For the Toasted Barrel End, that very same whiskey has been moreover aged for an unspecified period of time in a second toasted barrel, the precise toast profile of which was chosen by Michter’s Grasp of Maturation Andrea Wilson. We loved the debut, so let’s take a look at the sequel.

Like its predecessor, there’s loads right here for each the rye and bourbon lover, by no means thoughts followers of the now widespread “toasted” model. On the nostril, a mild, caramel-covered sweetness shortly offers strategy to minty spice and extra energetic and distinctive notes of tahini and crispy gingerbread. The palate is exceedingly approachable, a bit mushy however nonetheless well-spiced and candy with early, silky notes of uncooked honey and clove. The midpalate transitions to banana chips, candied ginger, tea leaves, and char earlier than a prolonged end of caramel corn, darkish butterscotch, and cinnamon buns, heavy on the cinnamon and vanilla frosting. Whereas Michter’s could catch flack for not upping the octane on this one, its distinctive drinkability is half the allure. Comfortable searching!

86 proof. Reviewed: Batch No. 22G2247.
