The money-is-no-object bottle
Michter’s enjoys a stellar reputation among bourbon and rye buffs as a label with a boutique pedigree but also one with growing ambitions. (It was recently named a “Heritage” member of the Kentucky Distillers’ Association, the first brand to earn such distinction in more than three decades.) We’re fans of many of Michter’s whiskeys, especially the 10-year — practically a bargain at $120. But if you have the deepest of pockets and want the ultimate Michter’s experience, consider the 2016 Celebration Sour Mash, a blend of the finest aged bourbons and ryes in the distillery’s stock. A mere 256 bottles have been released. Oh, and the price tag? Around $5,000.
