Michter's To Release 20 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon

While the Michter's 25 is being made available via a State lottery, Michter's has announced the release of a new 20 year bourbon releasing this month. The 2021 edition will mark the first release of Michter's 20 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon since 2019. 

Michter's President Joseph J. Magliocco states of this release:
I really enjoy this release because the barrels that our Master Distiller Dan McKee and our Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson selected for it are so layered and rich.

This release comes in with a 114.2 proof (57.1% ABV), and the suggested U.S. retail price of $750. The tasting notes are intense notes of black cherry, rich molasses, honeysuckle, roasted pecans, and toasted charred oak.

My Take

No word on if this will be available in Ohio. If it is, expect to see it in one of the many, many, many, many lotteries that the Ohio Division of Liquor Control (OHLQ) has throughout the year. 

In terms of the product, $750 is a hefty price for one bottle. If you're a hardcore collector, or looking to celebrate a special occasion, this could be something to go for... additionally, even though it's illegal in Ohio to resell bottles, a quick search shows a previous bottle of this going for $9999.99 so... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
