Michter's says the whiskeys that are aged between 17 and 20 years are at their "fork in the road point," when their quality has reached an "extraordinary" level (which kind of begs the question why they also have 25 year releases, but we'll go with it). It is here that Master Distiller Willie Pratt selects the barrels that go into the 20 Year Old Bourbon from the warehouse as they reach that fine stage of maturity.

Tasting Notes

"Deep, dark caramel, molasses, vanilla and baking spices mixed with bittersweet chocolate and cashews. There's a subtle twang of cedar and patchouli to cut the sweetness, and a good, strong, classic leathery finish with only a slight burn."
