Michter's US*1 Barrel Strength Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon (Barrel #17E866), 55.3%

Price: $75 Issue: Fall 2019 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

Exudes a tantalizing and heady aroma of baking spices, crème brûlée, and toasted oak, with Nilla Wafers and Jordan almonds lending confectionary notes. The oily mouthfeel and chewy viscosity are powerful yet balanced, as the lovely caramelized sweetness of grilled pound cake meets blackberry, lemon oil, ginger, and flickers of allspice. Focused and seamless in its rich tapestry of flavors. Editors' Choice
