    Re: George Dickel

    I read the whiskey advocate article on dickel this weekend. So since they are hand operated still, which makes a big difference in how the whiskey tastes, I tasted from current day dickel white, all the way back through samples from the sixties. Amazing how they have kept the flavor dead on all these years. You cannot say that about any other distillery I know of.

    That's a remarkable first hand account Tom, thanks for posting.

    Just curious. Does anyone know the age of Dickel No. 12? I think that it is clear that the number 12 does not relate to age. However, I have seen a few bloggers/reviewers state it as such. The most credible number seems to be something over 4 years but less than 10 years.

    That guess is as good as any. If the contents was indeed 12 years old they would proudly proclaim the fact.

    Years ago I asked David Backus and he said the No. 12 was aged 7-8 years on average but could have some older whisky as well.

    I recall back in the 70s the No. 12 had a 5 year age statement on the back label.

    Backus told me the same thing.

    Speaking of Dickel, did they discontinue the red label 3-year-old that they introduced during the Great Dickel Drought? I noticed some recent group ads that feature No. 8, No. 12, and single barrel only.

    A Diageo Whikey Ambassador ( or something like that) that I saw at an Irish tasting said that they did discontinue it.

    Now it will be offered as 'rare' and 'collectable' because it's no longer available.

    Been to their distillery a couple of times. It's worth the tour, small, almost a craft type. they don't distill the rye, it comes from IN

    It is a neat place to tour, if I ever get back there I plan to cast my flyrod on Cascade Creek.
