Michter's 10 year old Single Barrel Bourbon (Barrel #18B202), 47.2%

Price: $120 Issue: Fall 2018 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

There's evident age here, with dried leaves, old suede jacket, and dusty oak at the forefront, but underlying that maturity is plenty of dried fruit, figs, and cola. It pours broad and mouth filling, exuding both power and grace as it delivers caramel, tobacco, and a mélange of baking spices—cloves and nutmeg. The solid wood structure and oak tannins are here in abundance, but never out of balance.
