Michter's 10 Year Single Barrel Bourbon

Bourbon — Kentucky, USA

Tasted
3.5
3.5 out of 5 stars
Had a pour of the 2018 M10 at Whiskey Cake. Nose - Pretty standard bourbon nose of oak, vanilla, and a bit of ethanol. Maybe a hint of leather. Palate - Caramel, vanilla, baking spices, toasted nuts/toffee. Moderate finish was on the dry side, and a little hotter than I would expect for the proof. Overall it's was nice but nothing extraordinary - not worth chasing down IMHO and definitely not worth secondary prices. The taste profile reminds me a lot of Heaven Hill; this drank like a proofed down, slightly older version of Elijah Craig Barrel Proof.
