Michters US*1 Sour Mash Whiskey Review

Michters US*1 Sour Mash Whiskey I was lucky enough to be gifted for review a Drinks by the Dram American Whiskey Advent Calendar and this Michters US*1 Sour Mash Whiskey is one of the drams from that calendar.

December is one of the busiest months of the year for me at work so i didnt get through all the whiskies as i had wanted, so will review them all over the next few weeks instead starting here.

This has a lot of those sweet, sugary, woody, vanilla notes that i associate with American Whiskeys but it's certainly tasty enough with some sponge cake notes making me want to go back more and more.

Available to buy from Master of Malt.

Thanks to Drinks by the Dram for the calendar.

Tasting Notes & Details


That's really sweet straight off the bat, waxy fresh Madagascan vanilla pods and charred light wood notes, sweet caramelising Demerara sugar, almost sickly sweet


Initially lots of sugar caramelising on charred oak, vanilla infused sugar, and hints of overly sweet sponge cake


Sweet, sugary but short
