So a ranking of all the bottles of Michter’s whiskey is relevant to more than just the true aficionados. It’s for the people!

But while this small-batch Bourbon has changed a few things over time, it’s kept its ‘super premium’ holding and taste. Blanton’s claims that it’s “the original single barrel Bourbon whiskey” and is known for its unique bottle shape. Michter’s is riding high after landing atop Drinks International’s annual top 50 list of The World’s Most Admired Whiskies. It is the first time an American whiskey has taken home the number-one spot and, to celebrate, Michter’s will rerelease its 25-year-old Bourbon next month for the first time since 2020. But it can be difficult to know which brand and bottle are for you. How do you decide between the most popular Bourbons or, ultimately, find the best Bourbon of the year? The huge variety of brands, distilleries, proofs, and ages has made the world of whiskey a fascinating one, albeit slightly challenging if you’re not sure where to start. Before the process is started, a distiller must first determine the mash bill: the exact makeup of grains from which the whiskey is made. To qualify as Bourbon, the grains must feature at least 51% corn. Then, a combination of rye, wheat, and malted barley can also be added.Each of the Michter’s whiskeys has its own specific chill-filtering process. What Our Experts Think It Tastes Like:

However, it’s the term used for whiskey that’s been produced in select numbers on a limited basis. Well, it’s not just bourbon, nor rye. At its baseline, Michter’s is straight bourbon and straight rye. This means that the booze is aged at least two years, or in this case, over four (more on that below). There are other aspects to bourbon and rye, of course, but the main thing to know for Michter’s is the rye is spicier, and the bourbon is just a bit smoother.Then, the barrels are charred, offering a smoky environment that almost caramelizes the liquid. The standard barrel size is 263 liters and weighs 225 kilos when full. What’s the difference between Bourbon and Whiskey?

And let’s not forget the oak casks: the oak used is first stripped and left to weather for six months. This process removes the bitter tannins, allowing for a smoother flavor once the mixture has been added.

First introduced in the fall of 2014, this limited release begins with fully mature Michter’s Small Batch Bourbon, then it is aged in a secondary toasted barrel. What to Know:

This much-loved spirit has a distinct flavor profile and a history to match. The time, care, dedication, and craftsmanship that goes into Bourbon make it quite unlike anything else you’ll spot in the liquor cupboard. In 1964, Congress even declared Bourbon “America’s Native Spirit.” Whiskey is a spirit distilled from fermented grain mash (wheat, rye, barley, and corn) and then aged in wooden barrels.

Blended whiskey combines multiple other whiskeys alongside neutral grains, flavorings, and colorings. Maker’s Mark isn’t as spicy as rye-influenced whiskeys, making it a great Bourbon for a pairing.

Michter’s always sounded like an Irish cola brand to us, or maybe one of the trillion failed diagnoses in an episode of “House” (right up there with sarcoidosis). It’s actually a made-up word, and the creation of mid-20th century distillery owner Louis Forman, who co-owned the Pennsylvania distillery with Charles Everett Beam — yes, of that family. After Forman took over, he named the first pot-still sour mash whiskey “Michter’s” after his sons Michael and Peter, making Michter’s like the Kimye of American whiskeys.
