    I have always preferred Dickel over Jack, even when Jack was still 90 proof.

    Re: George Dickel

    Dickel just became available in my state. Need some opinions on which one to get. The No12 or the BS?

    The No. 12 is their flagship brand and my choice. If you like 12 enough it may be worth springing more for the Select but I didn't find a dramatic difference. The 10 year old 86 proof dusty is one I would buy on sight.

    Agree. The No.12 is better than the current Barrel Select, and definitley better than the No.8

    I agree. George Dickel 12 and Auchentoshan are great whisky. . Auchentoshan is a Lowland Scotch. The only distillery in Scotland that triple distills all their whisky and in pot stills. The distillery has an interesting history, apparently. it was operated by Irish immigrants at one time to produce Irish Whiskey for the Irish immigrants around Glasgow. Today, it exclusively single malt scotch but triple distilled. Back to topic, I used to drink JD but tried GD12 and was blown away. IMHO George Dickel 12 is the best American Whiskey today. Of course, you can't beat the price. GD12 is sippin neat, JD is for mixing with Coca Cola. I also think GD12 is superior to GDBS, although GDBS is a fine sipper as well. It just doesn't have the complexity of the 12.

    Dickel is a good all round whisky which I believe is under appreciated.
