Michter’s 10 Year Old Rye Whiskey
Michter's 10 Year Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Rye is one of our most limited-production items, and it's also one of our most exciting. It continues the legacy of America's first whiskey variety, with a flavor that evokes the spirit of the old American frontier, when great men forged their own path and named the land for themselves. One sip and you'll be hooked.
Our rye has a fruity aroma and a smokey finish, but what really makes it special is its nutty character: we've got tastes of hazelnut, almond, and even hints of Brazil nuts that come through on the palate. This is thanks to some truly unique characteristics: we use a higher percentage of rye in our mashbill than most other distilleries, and we also use ex-bourbon barrels instead of new oak barrels (like many other distilleries do). These two factors combine to create a uniquely smooth rye whiskey that takes you back in time to an era when people lived by their own rules—and made their own history.
