A style of whiskey that was very popular in the 1970s and 1980s. Sour mash whiskey refers to the leftovers from the previous batch which are then added into the new batch. Michter’s Sour Mash whiskey has flavours of vanilla, marzipan, fruit cake and cinnamon.
They are proud to offer this special release of our Barrel Strength Kentucky Sour Mash Whiskey. It is made according to our classic Sour Mash method and fully matured in new charred white oak barrels that are batched together at barrel strength. It is then further mellowed by our signature filtration.
Enticing aromas of dried fruit and freshly baked bread, but poised and focused.
A different story on the palate – bags of rich dried fruit, and generously spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg, like a turbocharged Dundee cake.
Well balanced, with the rich fruit standing up to the spice.
Bomberger’s Distillery, more recently Michter’s Distillery, is a non-operating distillery facility that was, at the end of the twentieth century, believed to be the oldest remaining such building in the United States. The distillery closed in 1989 and may have since been demolished.
