    Some people love chewing on band aids too.

    Let them, I always say, let them.

    I have friends on this very board who love heavily peated scotch... which is one of the reasons I have to bag on scotch every now and then!

    Re: George Dickel

    Planning to pick up a bottle of the #12 this evening.

    Will post some brief notes of my first impression of it, if I have time.

    Re: George Dickel

    I like Bourbon, rye, Irish, Scotch (both heavily peated and otherwise), Cognac, Armagnac and aņejo tequila.
    I guess . . . if it's brown, I'm down!

    My palate seems to go through phases. Sometimes I don't drink Scotch for months at a time, but when it sounds good, it usually tastes good. I rarely go more than 3-4 days without Bourbon, the others are all less consistent. I think variety is important to keep from getting stale or burned out.

    picked up some George Dickel Barrel Select today for $36, pretty much exactly the same price as JD single barrel. It will be interesting to see how it stacks up. I liked Dickel #8, so I have high expectations for the barrel select.

    I had both the #12 and the rye the other night and I think they are both fantastic, especially considering what I paid for them.

    The bourbon is softer and has more subtle flavors than the rye, which is more "in your face" but I like them equally well.

    Just taking my first sip of this tonight and the Bit O' Honey description is spot on. Great sipper for a changup from the "regulars"

    Just now polishing off the George Dickel Barrel Select I bought about a month ago. I really think it got better the longer the bottle was open.

    Great call on the Bit-O-Honey! Hitting on the #12 tonight, and while the vitamin is still there, the B-O-H note you detected is definitely there. Nice sweet note to this whiskey.
