    Re: George Dickel

    I have access to the 14 yr in NJ at $70, and bought one. I enjoyed it, but wasn't blown away by my first taste. I haven't been able to go back to it again, but will surely do so in the next couple of weeks, as I think some airtime will do it good. Stores in NYC that had the 14 yr, like Park Avenue Liquors, sold out quickly at $90 a bottle. I believe my store in NJ is also getting in the 9 yr--looking forward to trying that as well.

    exactly....a good description there. I give D12 a B, and the 9 year an easy A. I think I may even like the 9 year a hair more than the KCSB I love so much. Love the fullness and richness of the KCSB, but love the 'vitamin' aftertaste of the Dickel 9 year maybe a bit more. If Dickel released a 110 proofer, I dont think Id ever buy anything else again.

    I ran into some, but it was well outside of the city and only 1 bottle.

    The 14 yo is 106 proof, which is getting there. It's pretty good. Wood flavor comes through. Some bite from more than proof, but some days, that's a good thing. I'm glad more and more offerings of aged material is coming around.

    Re: George Dickel

    I recently had a nice sized sample of the Dickel 14yo. and prior to that bought 2 bottles blind after good reviews and recommendations from friends. Although good, it's not in my wheelhouse but seems to be for others. Not sure my two bottles will get any love from me.

    Re: George Dickel

    On another post new member oknazevad mentioned a new introduction so I looked it up. George Dickel White Corn Whisky Foundation No. 1 Recipe will be available nationwide in Jan., 2014.

    According to Master Distiller John Lunn, this expression will use the original Dickel mashbill (same one they've always used but not everybody knows that), go through the filtering process and be barreled at 91 proof (hear that Fox?) for nationwide release at a suggested retail of $21.99 a bottle.

    The thought of squire leisurely perusing Baller Status gives me a good chuckle.
