  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur


    Originally known as Shenk’s Distillery, when Lou Foreman took over, he created the Michter’s brand by combining his two son’s names – Michael and Peter. The distillery is now known as Michter’s

    N: If I’d been told this was whisky, I’d have rolled my ‘god damn, not more ex-bourbon cask-driven contemporary Scotch nonsense’ eyes, but then I got myself in check and remembered Dave C Smith’s ‘terrible champagne, great prosecco’ lesson [WLP]. Of what I’ve tried of Michter’s, it’s their bourbon that shines the most and I simply marvel at the consistency of quality. Instantly there’s that Kentucky fungal depth with a biscuit sponge sweetness. That’ll pretty much do it for now. Enjoy, dive on in.

    T: This is delicious varnish-light, soft-rich small-batch pot still corn whiskey, the cask not dominating at all. “A soft hug”, as Andrea says, is right –  a soft-yet-firm perfect straight-ahead article with a perfect sour touch.

    F: Gentle and balanced finish.

    C: Unwavering [affordable] excellence.

    Michter's Small Batch Bourbon, L19D724, 45.7%

    Very aromatic.
    Wood, the typical sweetness, meadow, grass.

    Very strong in the mouth.
    No longer sweet, the wood notes, honey, a light spice predominate.

    Really good!
