Renowned for Rye, America's first whiskey, since our
founding in 1753, we take production of every barrel of
Michter's Rye very seriously. Our US*1 Rye is made from
select American rye grain that is sheared to enable the
saturation of more flavor during fermentation. It is then
aged in a heated warehouse. This premium rye has hints
of light spice, black pepper, marmalade and plum, spicy
grain and light caramel.
Wine EnthusiastCrazy-sweet aroma, full of caramel, vanilla and a slight floral touch. The bite comes first (and lingers awhile), followed by vanilla, caramel, coconut flavors. It mellows considerably with ice, and becomes quite likeable, drinkable and mild.
