Michter's us 1 Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon Whiskey
750 ML (Standard)
The wood is definitely the star player here.A touch of coconut is present and some vanilla, but not as much sweetness as other Michter'smarques.
Toasted Barrel Bourbon presents with lots of prickly barrel spices on the nose with some cedar present.
The bourbon is a bit raw on the mid palate, imagine a heavy-duty rope.It improves on the finish and would please those that are after a less sweet bourbon and more of a spiced experience.
Willy Pratt of Michter's has stated that this is the company's Regular US*1 Bourbon that was finished in a brand-new toasted white oak barrel that has been toasted over an open flame of its own wood for 60 minutes..Light wood, fresh dough, fresh washed mushrooms and a hint of smoke are all present.
