90-95 points, 'Superb/Highly Recommended,' Wine Enthusiast: "The bouquet has a dry, grainy aroma which is accented by peppery/spicy scents. The palate entry is surprisingly sweet and corny, considering how dry the aroma is; the midpalate point is deep, corny sweet, sap-like and a bit syrupy. Ends up well and balanced, with a backnote of dried red fruit (raisins, prunes)." (Dec 2007)
Richard Woodard (Decanter): "Its ryes are excellent, but don't overlook this class act from Michter's. It elevates the typically rich sweetness found in bourbon with complex notes of dried fruit, white pepper and freshly baked bread. (June 2022)"
