Michter's 10 and 20 Year Old Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon

Michter's Distillery LogoThe latest bourbon release from Michter’s Distillery is not for the faint of heart or shall we say wallet. Michter’s has announced the release of their Michter’s 10 Year Old Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon and Michter’s 20 Year Old Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon. Like their tagline says on their Twitter page, “Producing the finest American whiskeys – cost be damned!” and they mean it.

The Michter’s 10 Year Old Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon 750ml bottle has a suggested retail price of $120 while the twice as old Michter’s 20 Year Old Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon 750ml bottle has a suggested retail price of $600.

Michter’s Master Distiller Willie Pratt, nicknamed “Dr. No” by the Michter’s sales force due to his frequent refusal to release whiskeys before he believes they have sufficiently matured is a stickler for quality. This is the first release of the 2015 bottling season for these two expressions. Pratt says, “These two bourbons were set for release at the beginning of this year, but I held them back for a bit more aging. I wanted them to be just right.”

Apparently, they are now just right and ready for distribution.
