Distiller Notes

Unlike Bourbon or Rye, which, by definition, must be aged in new oak barrels, Michter's US1 Unblended American Whiskey is aged in a way that utilizes whiskey-soaked barrels to achieve a rich and unique flavor profile. In late 2013, then Master Distiller Willie Pratt agreed to re-release US1 Unblended American Whiskey after a nearly three-year absence from the market, deeming it “just right” and “the best it’s ever been.” Crucially, Michter's US1 Unblended American Whiskey never contains grain neutral spirits – hence its “unblended” distinction.

 

Professional Ratings

95 Tasting Panel

Woodsy and dark, a savory perfume delivers tobacco, peach pie, and vanilla wafer. This 83.4-proofer is made in a full-throttle style, with black pepper and cinnamon seasoning its unctuous, smoldering coat of walnut and cedar. Maple-lined peaches soften the finish.

 

94 Wine Enthusiast

This small-batch whiskey is a treat, butter-soft and loaded with sweet toffee and hazelnut aromas and flavors. The long finish rolls toward dry espresso and mocha flavors, pepped up with clove and cinnamon.
