    Re: Dickel - What's Diageo's Problem?

    Well, if so, then the fact that they sold it to somebody else and didn't bring it out themselves ought to tell you something.

    Re: Dickel - What's Diageo's Problem?

    If I had to say why, then it maybe they did not have enough for it to be worth the trouble. But it really does taste a lot like their regular whiskey. Maybe it did not taste different enough. The rye taste is really subdued. It has a lot of that dickel taste some refer to as tasting like vitamins. On another note, it is a wierd thing to look at a bottle that says the tennesee spirits company, and on the back it says bottled in pewaukee, wi.

    That's where they "make" Rumchata. In fact, you can see Rumchata bottles coming off the line on the website.

    I've described Dickel as tasting like brewer's yeast. Specifically the compressed tablets sold as a chewable vitamin.
