While all Michter’s barrels are sampled regularly to see how the whiskey is aging, they pay even extra special attention to barrels once they are over 17 years old. At Michter’s they 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.
