Thread: George Dickel

    Re: George Dickel

    Wow, I just called and the first barrel is sold out! Was told a 2nd barrel of 14 yr old will be in the general store soon. Also, was told due to the size of the store there at Dickel they won't be carrying the 9 yr old and 14 yr old at the same time and probably will not resort to the 9yo til they run out of the (limited) qty of 14yo barrels. They said stores are able to buy the 9yo though. Glad I bought two bottles of the 14yo.

    Please keep me posted, so I know when to reschedule my call on my Nashville customer...

    The Dickel 12 is great value for the money - I would definitely recommend trying it. I would love to try a 14 year old version based on the quality in the No. 12; that is a really nice find. Hopefully they'll do more of this.

    Right you are gentlemen! I went out and grabbed a bottle based on your recommendations. I will be honest. My first impression was "oh well, its ok but nothing special." But, like a good SBer, I have learned to give things time and multiple tries. My second pour was very good. I did do something a little different. I split off some into a smaller bottle and placed in the freezer all day. I really enjoyed it.

    While not a true bourbon, it has some mellow bourbon qualities. As I have mentioned in other threads, I am not very good at tasting notes but I definitely noted butterscotch and toffee followed by a nutty finish. Really different.

    Thanks for the recommendation!

    Always have one open. Not a frequent pour, bottle will usually last me a year or so, but every so often I just gotta have me a a taste of Dickel... as it is a classic.

    As to the $98 Hand Select...I guess it's in line since it's missing the e .

    Also interesting that the wide world of the internet appears to still be blog silent on the Hand Select. Possibly Diageo did not send advance samples to the cognoscenti?
