Bomberger's Declaration Bourbon 2020 Release Flash Review

Michter's has two lesser-known legacy brands they continue to put out releases for in Shenk's and Bomberger's. You may have seen both of the 2021 releases starting to hit shelves recently around you! I had a pour of the 2020 Shenk's last night as I packed box after box to move out of my previous residence. No time like the present to get into a pour of the 2020 Bomberger's as I sit on the porch of my new home, surrounded by a mess of things that have yet to find a permanent spot. Let's give this a quick review tonight as I am on the more-tired-than-usual side!


Company on Label: Michter's

Whiskey Type: Bourbon

Mash Bill Percentages: Undisclosed

Proof: 108°

Age: NAS

Further identification: Batch 20G1523, Bottle 1100 of 1759.


Review: Delicious bright red maraschino cherry on the nose. Seasoned oak. Citrus floats up powerfully but soft. First sip is like sweet cherry cola. Vanilla layers in for another slice of yum. Tart, lively and effervescent this has all the qualities of a fantastic mouth feel for me. Finish is superbly long and intense with maple syrup, plum, raspberry jam and fig. Highly recommended for someone who likes sweet yet tart flavors that aren't overly in your face. End of the glass smells of lemongrass, allspice and dark chocolate.


Rating: 4/5
