Michter's Barrel Strength Rye Whiskey. Photo ©2015 by Mark Gillespie.This single barrel Kentucky Straight Rye whiskey has an aromatic, yet sweet nose with clove and white pepper notes balanced by honey, vanilla, chocolate fudge, and a hint of caramel candy. The taste is nuclear-level spicy with a burst of clove, cinnamon, and black pepper notes that fades quickly to reveal fudge, honey, vanilla, and caramel sweetness while lingering spicy touches keep you paying attention. The palate turns dry heading into the finish, which has sweet notes of  fudge and honey with lingering hints of spices. Nice. (June, 2015)
