Michter's Announces New 25 Year Bourbon

Michter's has announced the release of a new 25 Year Bourbon hitting shelves this November. This release marks the first bottling of Michter's 25 Year Bourbon since 2017.

Michter's President Joseph J. Magliocco says:
The bourbon that has been selected for this release by Dan McKee and our Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson is truly extraordinary. A hallmark of our older whiskeys is that they have beautifully complex character while not being overly oaked.

This limited release comes in at 116.2 proof (58.1% Alcohol by Volume) and carries a whopping $1000 MSRP. 

Tasting Notes: Complex whiskey great mouthfeel. A symphony of flavors plays at different points on the palate with molasses, holiday spice, chocolate, smoke roasted nuts, dried fruit, melted butter and vanilla providing the highlights.

My Take

As I say with all the super expensive bourbons... this isn't a price point I'm interested in. For $1,000, I could buy a lot of good bottles that I would enjoy more than having one bottle of Michter's 25 year. 

If you have the money to spend, previous versions of the Michter's 25 year are showing up as having been sold in Ohio so there is a chance this could make it here. The previous price was $657.93 so this is a big price jump over the 2017 edition. 

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