    Possible George Dickel Rye?

    Found a label approval on the COLA website for a George Dickel Rye.

    https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonlin...12234001000261

    The label reads that it is chill filtered through sugar-maple charcoal, the typical Tennessee or Lincoln county process. Has this style of rye ever been released before? With rye so popular, I am a bit surprised that JD and GD have not already released something.

    Bring it on, the more rye the better! That said, I really dislike those two words "chill filtered" - I know most do it, but it really neuters a whiskey.

    Looking at the label, this is the 95% rye mashbill from LDI/MGP. It will be, cut, filtered, and bottled at 90 proof.

    It better have a damn good price point for us to buy it, when you consider Willett unfiltered, uncut is about 30 bucks a bottle

    I just saw George Dickey Rye listed on the MI state liquor price list with a state min. price of $23 (which is $3 less than Bulleit Rye). I don't know if it has hit the retail stores yet, but it should be fairly soon.

    It has been officially announced but, since it's just another iteration of LDI rye, we've all already tried it.

    I had forgotten about this thread, but http://www.straightbourbon.com/forum...rge-dickel-rye Tom called it.

    Although I guess it raises the question of what was actually in that bottle, since the Dickel rye is actually LDI distillate.

    My assumption is that they bought LDI new make, ran it through their charcoal vats in Tullahoma, and barreled and aged it in Tullahoma, so Lunn did everything in Tullhoma except distill it.

    OK, from the thread I was assuming they just bought aged rye and then ran it through the charcoal before bottling.

    Re: Possible George Dickel Rye?

    That might be right. I've looked over the promo materials and can't find a clue. They do say it's at least 5 years old. It's possible they were thinking about this in 2007. When was that video dated, where Lunn has the bottle on his desk? I've made an inquiry.

    By the way, I like the $24.99 price point very much. Yet another reason to not buy Templeton.

    The new Rye label states "We start with the finest distilled Rye whisky in the world. Then we finish it the classic way..." The No. 12 label specifies its "sweet maple mellowing" before "he sent it to age". If I can read any truth in the Rye label with the word "finish" it would be that it is being maple-charcoal filtered after barreling and before bottling. https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonlin...12234001000261
