Michter’s Barrel Strength Rye (2015) 8.4

Michter’s Barrel Strength Rye (2015)

Name: Michter’s Barrel Strength Rye

Overall Character: Simple, strong spicy and sweet, but mostly spicy.

Recommended Drinker: Obviously mostly for collectors and fans of the standard Michter’s Rye, but if you like the mellowness and balance of the standard version, I would recommend saving money and avoiding this, especially since it’s 3-4 times the price of the regular expression. However, if you’re a cask strength fanatic, or a collector, you probably shouldn’t pass this up, especially since it’s under $100, which is rare for a rare American whiskey these days.
