Product Details

Appearance: Light amber color to the whiskey. Nose: The front of the nose catches caramel and dried apricot. Further whiffs reveal vanilla, ripe pear, a hint of oak and a bit of clove. Palate: Shank's has a pleasant buttery front that is accompanied by a prickly heat that hangs on for just the right amount of time. Spicy notes of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg bring home a nostalgic fall flavor that is accented by the rich flavor of warm raisins. The back end has a welcome oak flavor that highlights the carefully aged barrels that were hand-picked for this distilling. The substantial amount of rye used in this distilling is what shapes the drier, earthier tone and keeps the sugars in check. Like a cozy blanket on your tongue, this whiskey warms and comforts in all the right ways that you would expect from a well-balanced whiskey. It is a shame that this is not on the regular line up for the Michter's label, but I am glad that dug deep when looking into what their legacy is built on. Score - 4 Stars (out of 5).
