    Sticky: Re: BOTM 4/15: George Dickel No. 12

    Ol' Joe said pretty much what I wanted to say. GD #12 has subtle charms that appeal to me when I'm looking for something different as well. Light and easy, this whiskey still delivers enough flavor...

    Re: Hello! From east end of Long Island NY

    Re: Hello from the UK

    Yes. That's a steep price at $100 when we get it for less than half that. You need an American mule to bring you some goodies! The Old Grand Dad 114 that was mentioned is also excellent and no doubt...
