Michter’s 10-Year Rye reflects the exceptional results of uncompromising craftsmanship and Kentucky's unrivaled climate for ageing outstanding whiskey. Composing of a blend much older than the 10 year old age statement on the label, only a select few barrels develop with the elegance required for inclusion in this highly limited release. One of Mitcher’s most limited production releases, Michter’s 10 Year Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Rye continues the legacy of America’s first whiskey variety (rye) from America’s first whiskey company (Michter’s, originally known as Shenk’s). After a three year absence from the market, Master Distiller Willie Pratt finally gave the green light for the re-release of Michter’s 10 Year Straight Rye in April 2014. On the nose, deep notes of vanilla and toffee, toasted almonds and cinnamon come to the fore with an ample dose of crushed pepper and a hint of orange citrus also evident. The palate is rich and spice laden with a wonderful depth of flavour and layers of sweet fruit, vanilla and clove. Long and pronounced on the finish, this represents a Rye whiskey to sip and savour straight, or enjoy as the base of a Manhattan cocktail. An incredibly limited and highly collectable release, it would make a truly special gift.
