Michter's US1 Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon. Image courtesy Michter's/Chatham Spirits.For this expression, Michter’s takes its standard US1 Bourbon and finishes it in new barrels that have been toasted, but not charred. The nose has a lot of oak tannins and pepperiness along with underlying notes of vanilla, caramel, and honey. The taste is oaky and peppery with chocolate fudge and caramel notes, and the spices fade to reveal a good complexity with notes of brown sugar, honey, and ginger root. The finish is long and subtle with hints of spice, caramel, and oak. (July, 2018)
