Michter's Toasted Barrel Finish

This month, Michter's is releasing a new limited release Rye whiskey that they've developed after years of research on using different barrel finishes. The end result is their new Toasted Barrel Finish, which is aged using fire-charred, American white oak barrels and toasted 24-month air dried wood barrels. 

The Rye is bottled at 108.6 proof and has tasting notes described as "enhanced spice notes with delicate chocolate overtones balanced by some vanilla and honey, hints of roasted nuts and dates, with a lingering finish of burnt brown sugar reminiscent of crème brûlée complemented by some smokey campfire highlights."
