Michter's US-1 Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon Whiskey 2021 Release
To make this special Toasted release, Michter's starts with fully matured barrels of its US*1 Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon and transfers the whiskey into a second barrel made of 18-month air dried wood for additional aging. The second barrel has been toasted to precise specifications, but not charred.
Michter's Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson establishes the protocol for the toasting of the barrels and for the subsequent aging of Michter's US*1 Toasted Barrel Bourbon. In speaking of the 2021 release, Wilson said, "This year's release is exceptionally balanced and is the perfect complement for the fall and holiday season."
