Michter’s Announces 2018 Release of Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon
Michter’s has announced the 2018 release of their US*1 Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon, releasing this September in limited quantities.
The 2018 release of Michter’s Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon will be the first in three years. Michter’s has cited whiskey shortages as reason for the three year hiatus. “We need to allocate our whiskeys because we just don’t have enough to meet demand,” said Joseph J. Magliocco, Michter’s President. “Because of the goods situation we debated whether to do this release. In the end we made the decision to make some Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon for our loyal customers who have been clamoring for it.”
Michter’s US*1 Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon is made by taking Michter’s Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey and aging it for an additional period in a second custom made barrel that is toasted, but not charred.
Michter’s Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon is bottled at 45.7% ABV (91.4 proof) and carries a suggested retail price of $60.
