Michter's US*1 Barrel Strength Single Barrel Straight Rye (Barrel 19C472), 54.9%

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

Complex and complete, the sweet and chewy aromas of maple syrup and crème de marrons meet milk chocolate and Andes Mints. On the palate, the intense layered sweetness of vanilla, crème brûlée, pecan pie, butterscotch, and honey is tempered by chili spice and deep earthy notes of leather and tobacco, before toffee and baking spices carry into the long finish.
