Welcome, Vasshopper. Nice choices of whiskey (in fact, I'm drinking Dickel #12 while writing this). What got you started drinking good bourbon and Tennessee whiskey? Got any good stories about your experiences you'd like to share? Your profile is a bit bleak -- do you live far from Kentucky/Tennessee? Are you Ms or Mr Vasshopper (or would you prefer not being specific)? Are there any little hoppers? (please, oh please, forgive me for this, but I just can't help it...) Are you in any way related to the great I. W. Hopper? (a collective groan arises that causes even the boys wrestling over there in the corner to stop a moment and go "eeyoooooo"). Okay, I'm sorry (heh heh, no I'm not); it's just my strange sense of humor. HEY JIM! When you get a minute, how about a glass of Old Rip Van Winkle 15yr for our new friend here!

Welcome Vasshopper!

You have great taste! Those are two of my favorite whiskeys as well. I've used the Dickel No. 12 to "turn" a good number of JD Black drinkers onto a better drink. If you like the Dickel No. 12, then try the Dickel Special Barrel Reserve. It is Special.

Hello, Vasshopper. I have tried the George Dickel Special Reserve and think very highly of the product. Have not tried the VSO Old Fitzgerald. If you like it try and get your hands on some the the 15yr Old Van Winkle 107 Proof. I think if you like old Fitz you will love 15yr VW. Enjoy, Creggor
