Michter's US*1 Barrel Strength Rye
Michter's // USA
This limited edition rye is the barrel strength version of the Michter's single barrel rye. It ranges between 108 - 110.8 proof (the proof for this review is at 110.2). The idea behind it is to release a rye that gives loyal customers a longer taste of what is sampled straight from the barrel.
RyeMash bill at least 51% rye; aged in new, charred oak barrels.
Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"For fans of hot, spicy rye, this is a true cracker. Fiery hot cinnamon, clove, allspice, cedar, pine and nutmeg rush right to the front, while sticky sweet caramel, vanilla, banana and red apple try to catch up. It's quite thick and rich, and likes a big ice cube not only to soften the heat, but also mesh the flavors together."
