Michter’s 20 Year Limited Release



Quick Stats:

Distillery: Michter’s
Spirit: Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Age: 20 Years
Proof: 114.2
MSRP: $700

From The Distillery:

“While we regularly sample all our Michter’s barrels to see how our whiskey is aging, we pay even extra special attention to our barrels once they are over 17 years old. At Michter’s we consider 17 to 20 years the ‘Fork In The Road Point’ when certain barrels of whiskey can achieve an extraordinary level of quality. It is these particular barrels that our Master Distiller Dan McKee personally selects for our very limited bottling of Michter’s 20 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon.”

Old Tub

  • Distiller: Jim Beam
  • Spirit: Bourbon
  • Aged: 4 Years
  • Proof: 100
  • Purchase Price: $17.99

    From the Distiller: “Our family bourbon was called Old Tub before we sold it in bottles. Prior to prohibition, people would bring their own jugs to the distillery and fill them with bourbon. Booker always enjoyed his 100 proof old tub. We’re proud to see it brought back as a drinkable part of our history.”

    About The Distillery: “ Since our beginnings in 1795, every Master Distiller has found the opportunity to push our story forward, finding untapped places to innovate how we make and enjoy bourbon. It’s rewarding to look back on all the Jim Beam family has accomplished, but we wouldn’t be where we are now if not for the steady desire to keep moving. And we certainly wouldn’t be here without each and every member of our global family.”

Wild Buck Whiskey

  • Distiller: N Joy Distillery
  • Spirit: 100% Rye Whiskey
  • Aged: Single Year
  • Proof: 100
  • Purchase Price: $54.99

    From the Distiller: “Wild Buck is smooth, bold, handmade and bottled at 100 proof. We start by fermenting a mash of 100% farm fresh rye grain. We grind and cook it daily one batch at a time. We add no artificial flavorings or color and use only purified, ultraviolet filtered rain water. At NJoy Spirits our whiskey is never rushed. Our whiskey is aged in custom made new charred American Oak barrels and allowed to develop in the Florida climate. This gives our final product a deep rich flavor with a hint of spice that only develops with time using smaller barrels… the way whiskey used to be aged.”

    About The Distillery: “NJoy Spirit’s Distillery is a family operated Florida whiskey distiller in the heart of the nature coast. When we started making our Rye Whiskey (we didn’t want to just make any rye) we wanted to make America’s finest 100% Rye Whiskey! We are confident we have achieved that and have no doubt you’ll agree with just one sip!”

Maker’s Mark 101

  • Distiller: Maker’s Mark
  • Spirit: Bourbon
  • Aged: Around Six Years
  • Proof: 101
  • Purchase Price: $49.99

    From the Distiller: “This one changed the way we think of bourbon, all because one man changed the way he thought about making it. Bill Samuels, Sr., simply wanted a whisky he would enjoy drinking. Never bitter or sharp, Maker’s Mark® is made with soft red winter wheat, instead of the usual rye, for a one-of-a-kind, full-flavored bourbon that’s easy to drink. To ensure consistency, we rotate every barrel by hand and age our bourbon to taste, not time. Each and every bottle of Maker’s® is still hand-dipped in our signature red wax at our distillery in Loretto, Ky., just like Bill, Sr., would have wanted.

    Maker’s Mark 101 is our signature Maker’s Mark family recipe, brought to you at a higher proof. Now available in limited quantities at our distillery.”

    About The Distillery: “ We’re still doing things just like we did them in 1953. From the old letterpress, to the way we hand-rotate every barrel and hand-dip every bottle.

    There’s an old joke at the distillery that goes, ‘If we could make it any faster, we wouldn’t.’ Because at Maker’s Mark, it’s one bottle at a time. Every time. That’s as true today as it was when our founders filled our first bottle. And since then, it’s been a widely held belief around here that character isn’t made by machine.”

Chicken Cock – Beer Barrel Select

  • Distiller: Bardstown Bourbon Company
  • Spirit: Beer Barrel Finished Bourbon
  • Aged: 10 – 11.5 year blend
  • Proof: 90
  • Purchase Price: $94.99

    From the Distiller: “In the Summer of 2018, we bottled twelve barrels of our award-winning 10 Year Old Double Barrel Bourbon. We then gave six of those barrels to our friends at Goodwood Brewing in Louisville to finish their delicious Walnut Brown Ale. When they were done, we took those barrels back and filled them with a blend of our best, hand selected Kentucky Bourbon aged up to 11.5 years. The result is our first Beer Barrel Select, born and bottled in the Bluegrass State.”

    About The Distillery: “Originally established in 1856 in Paris, Kentucky, the original Chicken Cock American Whiskey rose in popularity during the 19th century and was infamously a staple of Prohibition-era speakeasies, including the Cotton Club, where it would be smuggled inside in nondescript tin cans. Chicken Cock disappeared from the market in the 1950’s after the original distillery burned down, but we’ve now brought The Famous Old Brandback, combining 160 years of history with a touch of 21st century.”

Rabbit Hole – Dereringer

  • Distiller: Rabbit Hole Distillery
  • Spirit: Sherry Cask Finished Bourbon Whiskey
  • Aged: Unstated
  • Proof: 93
  • Purchase Price: $76.99

From the Distiller: “Our Sherry Cask Finished Bourbon epitomizes Kaveh’s wife, Heather. Elegant, sweet, and charming, she is the muse behind our brand. A Louisville native and bourbon enthusiast, she lured Kaveh away from his beloved Scotch and down a rabbit hole he may have never dared alone.”

Old Forester – Old Fine Whisky 1910


  • Distillery: Old Forester Distillery
  • Spirit: Bourbon
  • Aged: Unstated
  • Proof: 93
  • Purchase Price: $62.99

From the Distiller: “On October 22nd. 1910, a fire on the bottling line halted production of Old Forester. Mature whisky ready to be bottled, instead was stored in a secondary barrel. What emerged was a delightful whisky, remarkable enough to become an entirely new expressions – Old Fine Whisky.

Today mimicking this historic bottling, this unique expression of Old Forester has undergone a second barreling, granting it exceptional character, a smooth and sweet flavor and a clean, crisp finish. Entering the second barrel at a low 100 proof allows more of the sweet wood sugars to dissolve into the whiskey. 1910 Old Fine Whiskey is the fourth and final expression of the Whiskey Row Series, presented at 93 proof.”

A total of 120 barrels distilled on May 15, 2008, and aged on the second floor of Warehouse I, Master Distiller Chris Morris and Master Taster Jackie Zykan selected and proofed this year’s limited edition. With a taste consisting of rich oak spice and blackcurrant coupled with light maple, caramel cake, and white floral notes, the 2019 Birthday Bourbon is a one-of-a-kind expression with a truly unique multidimensional profile.”

Michter’s Unblended American Whiskey

  • Distillery: Michter’s Distillery
  • Spirit: Unblended Whiskey
  • Aged: Varied (by taste of Master Distiller Dan McKee)
  • Proof: 83.4 proof
  • Purchase Price: $42.99

From the Distiller:  “  Unblended American Whiskey is aged in a way that utilizes whiskey-soaked barrels to achieve a rich and unique flavor profile. In late 2013, then Master Distiller Willie Pratt agreed to re-release our US1 Unblended American Whiskey after a nearly three-year absence from the market, deeming it “just right” and “the best it’s ever been.” Crucially, our US1 Unblended American Whiskey never contains grain neutral spirits – hence its “unblended” distinction.”
