Michter's Announces 2020 Edition of 10-Year Single Barrel Rye

Michter's has announced the 2020 release of their 10 Year Single Barrel Rye. Like last year, not much information was provided other than it has an MSRP of $160 for a 750ml bottle, which is up $30 from last years edition. 

Michter's Master Distiller Dan McKee states: 
I just love Kentucky style rye because it has not only great spice, but also the richness and the balance that comes from having a fair amount of corn and malted barley in the mashbill. And I think the 2020 release of our 10 Year Rye is an outstanding example of Kentucky style rye
No tasting notes were provided.

My Take

Like last year, this is a tough sell for me. $160 is a lot to pay for a single bottle without much information provided on what differentiates this from anything else. For example, WhistlePig also has a 10 year rye that retails for $99.99. I'd be more inclined to try that before splurging for this release. I'll say the same thing I said last year.... If you're a huge Michter's fan and want to splurge, this could be the spirit for you, but for everyone else, I think this will be a pass. 

What do you think? Let me know in the comments section.
