Michter's Announces 2022 Edition of 20 Year Bourbon

 Michter's has announced that the 2022 bottling of their 20-year bourbon will begin shipping to retailers starting in November. 

Michter's Master Distiller Dan McKee says: 
With the extra attention given to the older barrels, it's releases like the 20 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon that make me proud of our maturing team and all of their hard work in aging these beautiful whiskeys.
The year's release comes in at 114.2 proof (57.1% alcohol) and carries an MSRP of a whopping $1200 and carries the following tasting notes:

Intense notes of black cherry, rich molasses, honeysuckle, roasted pecans, toasted charred oak

My Take

Oof... $1200 is a lot to pay for a single bottle of bourbon... especially when the 2021 edition of the Michter's 20-year had a $750 MSRP. If this comes to Ohio, I'd expect to see it in the OHLQ expensive bourbon lottery that usually happens in early November. For me, paying that much for a single bottle is a hard pass.
