Michter's 10 year old Single Barrel Straight Bourbon (Barrel #16B233), 47.2%

Price: $120 Issue: Summer 2016 Reviewer: Fred Minnick

Released in the spring of 2016. True balance and consistency from nose to finish, showing toffee, saltwater taffy, cinnamon Jolly Rancher, crème brûlée, nutmeg, toasted pecan, chocolate, fruit, delicate spice. Hints of pear, peach, and apple. I love the coffee and hazelnut on the long finish. I wonder if the taste would improve in the 107 to 111 proof range. As it is now, this is a must-have sipper.
