Michter’s releases new batch of 10YO Bourbon

After withholding its popular 10-year-old expression in 2022 due to low supply, Michter’s Distillery in Kentucky has now released it two years in a row.

The 2024 release of Michter’s 10-year-old Bourbon will hit shelves this April

The 2024 batch of Michter’s popular 10-year-old single barrel Bourbon will hit shelves this April, bottled at 47.2% ABV and priced at US$185.

“This is a wonderful single-barrel whiskey. It’s brimming with all the characteristics I look for in a special Bourbon,” said master distiller Dan McKee. 

Michter’s has held the release of its 10-year-old Bourbon in recent years as it managed supply issues of its aged stocks. In April 2023, when releasing its 10-year-old rye, the brand said that despite increased fermentation capacity and improved bottling operations, it was still unlikely to meet demand for its whiskeys. “We want our loyal Michter’s drinkers to know we are trying to continue to invest in the growth of the brand while maintaining the exceptional level of our whiskeys,” master of maturation Andrea Wilson said at the time.

While this 10-year-old bottling will no doubt be limited in nature, it is encouraging that Michter’s is now comfortable enough to release it for two consecutive years, with McKee and Wilson taking their time when selecting barrels and maintaining high-quality standards. 

“We know that Michter’s fans everywhere look forward to our 10-year Bourbon. We are excited to share the 2024 release, which again is overaged to a beautiful maturity with an excellent nose, creamy texture and an array of characteristics on the palate that ascend through to the finish, making every drop an enjoyable moment,” said Wilson.

Michter’s has steadily re-released some of its limited whiskies in recent months. In August 2023, it brought back its Toasted Barrel Finish Rye, first introduced in 2014. In December 2023, meanwhile, it released its much-heralded 25-year-old Bourbon for the first time in three years.
