The US-1 expressions, so named to honor Michter’s heritage harkening back to America’s first whiskey company, consist of some of the finest single barrel and truly small batch whiskeys available. Distilled to Master Distiller Dan McKee’s exacting specifications, no US-1 whiskey is ever released until Dan and the Michter’s tasting panel deems it ready.
Unlike Bourbon or Rye, which, by definition, must be aged in new oak barrels, our Michter's Small Batch US-1 Unblended American Whiskey is aged in a way that utilizes whiskey-soaked barrels to achieve a rich and unique flavor profile. In late 2013, then Master Distiller Willie Pratt agreed to re-release our Michter's Small Batch US-1 Unblended American Whiskey after a nearly three-year absence from the market, deeming it “just right” and “the best it’s ever been.” Crucially, our Michter's Small Batch US-1 Unblended American Whiskey never contains grain neutral spirits – hence its “unblended” distinction.
Tasting Notes: Whiskey-soaked American white oak barrels, first use and second use. Deep butterscotch and vanilla notes, hints of caramel and dried fruit with ripened fruit finish. 83.4 Proof.
