Thread: George Dickel

    Re: George Dickel

    This is my first post here. So it should go here since I've been a #12 fan for years as my go to. I went to the distillery in Cascade Hollow this weekend. I also picked up a bottle of Barrel Select, and two bottles from there first barrel of the "Hand Selected Barrel" line. It's 106 proof aged 14 years. It's pricey. I'm going to open one later this week.

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys. I've actually been reading this board for a few years. I finally decided to join in on the fun. I got home this afternoon and picked up my bottle of George Dickel Hand Selected Barrel. This is like I said from the first barrel and only sold at the distillery, after you pick your bottle out you get to sign the barrel. Comes in the Barrel Select bottle with different labels of course stating the lines name, that it is aged 14 yrs, and bottled at 106 proof and a bronze medallion.

    Nose - Not overly alcoholic for the proof, I got lots of vanilla, some maple syrup, and oaky... Corn is gone.

    Taste - Starts really light picks up fast though with lots of Oak, some apricot, I detect a little cinnamon as it warms, the oak stays with it then as it is fading out it's all butterscotch, and vanilla. Very smooth.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my first pour of this. It's expensive though so I'm going to try to take my time and savor this. I've been waiting and hoping Dickel would release something like this. Thanks again for the warm welcome everyone.

    After sitting back and having a generous pour tonight of this. I feel like I know this one better. Still light at entry, mid it will give sides of your tongue a bit of a burn, smooth going down with very little burn at all. Flavors still that stand out to me vanilla, lots of oak, then butterscotch. This is damn good whisky. It's currently $98 a bottle wish it were cheaper I'd drink this over #12 any day.

    Thinking the same thing (different route, though).

    Thanks for the intel, RTR. She doesn't know this yet, but my good customer in Nashville will be seeing me very soon... There is supposed to be a 9 yr 103 proof coming, too. Did you see or hear anything about that one?
