Michter's US*1 Small Batch Original Sour Mash Whiskey

During the 1970s and 1980s, Michter’s Original Sour Mash was the distillery’s single most popular product. While the ‘Sour Mash’ moniker originated from the whiskey production process of the same name, whereby some previously fermented mash is used as the starter for the new mash to be fermented, much like making sourdough bread, Michter’s Sour Mash earned distinction for its taste. With its unique grain selection, it cannot be categorised as a rye or a bourbon.

    Nose:    Sweet oak, corn mustiness, caramel, vanilla.

    Taste:    Sweet, thinner, caramel and cinnamon, they pepper.

    Finish:   Nice spicey finish balanced against the sweetness.
