Tonight, Let it Michter's

Treating myself to a bottle of Michter's US1 Unblended American Whiskey. If you haven't tried this, you are in for a treat! I can hardly wait... tonight!

Unlike Bourbon or Rye, which, by definition, must be aged in new oak barrels, Michter's US 1 Unblended American Whiskey is aged in a way that utilizes bourbon-soaked barrels to achieve a rich and unique flavor profile. (yeah, yeah, this is from their website...)

US 1 Unblended American Whiskey is really something special.  It has a rich, caramel flavor (probably from those bourbon barrels).

Hey, I just realized. I'm sort of recommending a flavored whiskey (say it isn't so!). Bourbon Flavored Whiskey!

Join me for a Michter's US1 Unblended American Whiskey tonight and tomorrow, tell me what you think.

Woodford's Rye Does Not Disappoint!

I had the opportunity to try Woodford Reserve's new rye offering recently and was very pleased. True to Woodford's bourbon tradition, their Kentucky Straight  Rye Whiskey is very smooth and soothing while still retaining the bold and "peppery" flavor that I love about rye whiskeys.

Woodford's master distiller Chris Morris says they have been perfecting the rye recipe for almost a decade before its release. He also said, “One of the primary reasons behind Woodford’s growth into the number one selling ultra-premium bourbon in America is because of our commitment to flavor, and that’s engrained in everything we do. Not only does it affect how I approach bourbon production personally, it’s the lens through which we view the future of Woodford Reserve, and I couldn’t think of a liquid that better embodies that than the rye.”

I certainly agree.  Woodford Reserve is one of my favorite bourbons and I will definitely be adding their Kentucky Straight  Rye Whiskey to my cabinet.
