Michter's, as NDPs go, has an amusing background (the current Michter's, not the historical PA based distillery) involving some really "creative" invented history and marketing.

 

That said, they produce some of the best, reasonably priced Bourbon available. The Toasted Barrel Bourbon is really tasty stuff.

The 2013 was grossly overrated. There are many sherried single malts that are, IMHO, substantially superior (especially when you start factoring in actual market prices).

I never remember which Michter's I like. The sour mash is a little disappointing, the rye is pretty good. I should try the American.

I agree.  I actually have the 2009 version (the first year it was available) and I bought it for what was like $125.  Couple that with the 2 bottles of yamazaki 18 that I bought for under $100 and its a pretty nice collection there.  I liked the 18 more but yes, I can find many better sherried these days that don't cost an arm and a leg.  I'll keep those for amusement and to see if someday I'll make some money on them.

Just tried Balcone Texas Single Malt. Not sure what to make of it.

I had some two weeks ago.  It's too big for me.

Picked up a bottle each of Taketsuru 12, Hibiki 12, and Yamazaki 12. Figured its now or never.

I tried Armorik recently at the HK Whisky Festival. Found it really underwhelming but the guys from the distillery were really nice and passionate.
