    I remember the warehouse being stone and thought the barrels were stacked five high but no recollection of the roof. Slate would be nice.

    I honestly don't remember (only 4 months ago, getting old). The distillery is in the most gorgeous setting you will find anywhere. The distillery itself is a time capsule.

    Re: George Dickel

    I approached this backwards. I had never had any TN whiskey at all, as it is all sub 100 proof. When I saw the 9/103 Dickel, I debated and debated (I find that I really enjoy things that are 6-9 years old and over 100 proof, so everything I see in that category, I make a point to try) and eventually walked out with it. I like it very well, but the lingering aftertaste is it's greatest asset to me. Now, I have to try the Dickel 12 and see for myself what that's like.

    Glad you liked that one. I think it's pretty fantastic stuff.

    Any of you Atl members seeing the GD9 or 14 on the shelves yet? When ask about it with my dealers all I get is a dumb look.

    They are barrel picks, so your dealer will have to purchase an entire barrel to get it.

    The GD 9 & 14 both appeared at my NoTex store this week, on a nice barrel head display. The manager mentioned it to me almost as an afterthought, after highlighting the arrival of more PHC PoH, and possible arrival of more Stagg Jr. I took a GD 9 home, opened it, had three pours, and was surprised at how different it is from anything else I've had: smooth for the proof, but with a very noticeable aftertaste--I believe someone described it as sort of gravelly or mineral-y, and that matches what I found last night. Definitely distinctive, though not a bottle I'll likely buy another of.

    I was lucky enough to procure a bottle of the 14 yr through a friend traveling. Can't wait to try it when he gets back. Heard nothing but good things.
