This summer, we’re all about bourbon. We’ve paired up bourbon with barbecue, shown you how to make a Mint Julep, tried to answer the question ‘What is bourbon?‘, and, to cap it all, are giving away a bottle of the excellent Michter’s 20 Year Old Single Barrel Bourbon.
The folks at Michter’s are bottling some amazing whiskey, but it’s the limited-edition single-barrel bourbon that has really excited the collectors, connoisseurs and geeks. With only a tiny number of bottles released every year, and only a fraction of those making their way outside of the USA, we’re very pleased to have been able to get one to give away in our prize draw.
Nose: Rich and polished, and surprisingly bright considering its age. Seductive notes of leather and mocha.
Palate: Toffee and classy oak dominate, then solid spiciness comes through. The richness masks the high abv.
Finish: Very long, with complex spice intertwining with the oak and fruit. Sensational.
To enter, all you need to do is buy a bottle of the flagship Michter’s US*1 Small Batch Bourbon before 11.59pm on 9 August 2016. You can find full details on our Michter’s competition page. Good luck!
