|A Toast to Harper Lee|
A Heritage Member of the Kentucky Distillers Association, Michter’s just released their latest rye expression, a 10 Year Single Barrel Rye priced at $150 for a 750ml bottle.
Two days ago, Harper Lee, the author of To Kill a Mockingbird, was buried in Monroeville, Alabama. It seemed a perfect time to pour some of this regal elixir into an old fashioned glass and join in a toast to her and her magnificent story about decency.
I paraphrased Reverend Sykes who asked Scout, during a moment of high drama, to stand up: “Your father's passin'."
This is serious Rye Whiskey. Don’t be surprised to find cinnamon, vanilla and a hint of pepper. George Washington and Atticus Finch would love it.
