    Re: George Dickel

    I have seen a lot of posts about Dickel lately and it is on sale in Oregon this month so I brought a bottle home with me.

    Not liking the first pour out of the bottle. Not liking it at all. I don't get "flintstones" out of it as much as straight-up multivitamin. Hope it will grow on me.

    which one did you get......they have at least 6 different bottlings. the 9 year/103 proof is quite good, but the Dickel 12 is similar, just lacking in proof. I havent had the Dickl 8 or the barrel select, and the 14 year is a bit more than I want to spend.

    George 12. I like it better now that I'm not having it side-by-side with other things, I will say. I get more than just pure multivitamin this time around.

    That is what I found. There are other options in the same price range that I prefer.

    i think the 'vitamin' taste that people talk about (i dont get the whole 'vitamins' thing) is a good taste the Dickel has. It sure is unique, and clearly sets itself apart from bourbon, but I like it.

    Like you though, the first fet sips I was unsure about. A few drinks into the bottle and now I love that profile.

    I love Dickel. The first brown whiskey I came to love. I have a bottle of the 9 year which I like very much. Anyone had the 14 yr? I've heard good reports on some of the private barrelings.

    I got bottles of the Liquor Barn 9 and 14 yr., and I thought the 14 was significantly better and worth the extra $20. I bought 3 more.

    The 9 is far better than the 14 anyhow, IMO.

    If you like more oaky bourbons the 14 will be great to your palate. That great Dickel flavor with a ton of oak. The 9 year is closer to the regular Dickel 12 with more depth and oomph
