One of our most limited production items, Michter’s 10 Year Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Rye 2020 continues the legacy of America’s first whiskey variety (rye) from America’s first whiskey company (Michter’s, originally known as Shenk’s). After a nearly three year absence from the market, Michter’s then Master Distiller Willie Pratt finally gave the green light for the re-release of Michter’s 10 Year Straight Rye in April 2014.



  • Tasting Notes

  •          : Concord grape juice, leather armchair, cola syrup, iced tea, roasted pecans, and furniture polish on the nose. The palate is deeply fruity, with cooked cherries, blackberries, Concord grape jelly, Coca-Cola, dark chocolate, silky baking spice, and white pepper, with a lush and velvety texture. A complex finish of bitter chocolate, peanut shell,

    • NOSE

      Pronounced oak up front, then intense spiciness, with that near-soapy note you find with cardamom and coriander seed. Rich, with a bitter-chocolate note, too.

    • FINISH

      The finish is a medium-lasting one consisting of more toasted orange zest, cinnamon and clove.  The rye spice still hangs around and is kind of welcome due to the added complexity it brings.

    • Palate:  The palate picks up a bit of rye spice character along with some cinnamon heat that adds some depth.  Otherwise, the sweetness of the nose transforms into caramel candies and a toasted citrus zest.  There is also a small amount of oak present as well.
