    People's thoughts on George Dickel over in the Tennessee Whiskey Forum here.

    Also Tom's tasting notes on Jack Daniel's and George Dickel.

    Hey look, he's puking his JD all over Mr. Dickle because the JD is so putrid in his mouth!

    J/K J/K, I actually have not tried Dickel yet. I searched for a 50 ml to try while traveling to VA some time ago and could not find one. Has anyone perhaps close to TN, seen recent bottles (50ml) of dickel? I may just have to wait till Sept. From the looks of 2 of the top tasters we have, this will have to be a decision I'll have to make for myself.

    I have to disagree with you. In a showdown between JD and GD, GD wins easy.

    In the interest of "scientific" research, after your post, I took a swig of my WV sister's GD (my KY sister doesn't drink bourbon). I am at my parents' house now and my sister leaves a bottle of GD, black, 80, for the times she visits. I just took a couple quick swigs from the plastic bottle (when in Rome). Not bad stuff. Very easy drinking even accounting for the 80 proof.

    Here's the recipe for George Dickle:

    Take 2oz of your least favorite bourbon, say Rebel Yell or Cabin Stills. Take 2 one-a-day vitamins, crush them and add to the bourbon. Shake Well. Take a Pinch of grass from your lawnmower bag, add to the drink and stir. Leave in the hot sun for a couple of hours and enjoy. GD12 is best served up warm in a dirty glass.

    Ewww, all I can say is . Crushed vitamins, that just ruined it for me!


    You're not kidding when you say you dislike it, haha.
