I spy Bourbon or Rye, something beginning with “S”
 
That’s right, neither. We’re talking about Sour Mash Whiskey. Michter’s to be exact. Established in 1753 by John Shenk in Pennsylvania’s Blue Mountain Valley, they’re one of the oldest active distilleries in the United States. Teaming up with Michter’s President Joseph J. Magliocco in the 1990s, Richard “Dick” Newman resurrected the brand in Louisville, KY, where Michter’s have been bottling their exquisite Whiskeys, Bourbons and Ryes ever since.
 
Michter’s Original Sour Mash was their most popular product during the 1970s and 80s, and now it’s back with a vengeance. Joining their US*1 line in 2012, this Whiskey stays true to the profile and palate of its predecessor. Michter’s dubbed its champion after the Spirit’s production process, in which previously fermented mash is used as the starter for the new batch. Like making sourdough bread, except better. Because it’s Whiskey.

Although its unique grain selection prevents it from being categorized as Bourbon or Rye, it doesn’t stop Michter’s US*1 Sour Mash from starting off like the former and finishing like the latter. It’s Michter’s way of masterfully pushing their mash bill envelope right to the edge of the Rye realm, without tipping over. Great to sip on its own, Sour Mash Whiskey is also perfect for a Bourbon based cocktail or a BBQ sauce ingredient to pour over your chicken on a hot summer’s day.

GARY,
In reality Michter's US*1 Sour Mash gets a 9.6 from the Russian judge (If I could give tenths of a point) but since I can't I gave it a 9 and scored it on the low end of 9 rather than a 10...not sure there is such a thing as a 10 but for the price...this is a GREAT whiskey!

Ian,
Another Fantastic Whiskey from Michter's. Not quite as aged as their celebration selection but you can tell this Sour Mash was created painstakingly with respect to the starter that it came from. Smooth but filled with character, and priced similarly to the other fantastic Michter's US*1 Range. The rye is still my favorite from them and I'm looking forward to hunting for Toasted Barrel expressions in the near future!
