    my first few pours I could only best describe as 'sooty'. I couldnt make up my mind on it, but a few pours later, and I decided I love it. Still, sooty-smoke is a quasi-correct way to put it. I find it quite agreeable, the same way I like smoky BBQ sauce.

    It's cheap enough to try it and see for yourself. Grab a 375 of Dickel 12, if nothing else. Theyre about $12 here.

    The 9 year is better, but I'd recommend trying the D12 first, as it's far cheaper, and will give you an idea of the profile

    A friend of mine was helping his neighbor clean out his house a few weeks ago. His neighbor gave him this bottle they found while cleaning. Anybody know any info on it?

    Looks like mid 1970s or earlier vintage George Dickel Black Label. Being a quart bottle and the fact it's 86.8 proof sets the period of manufacture no later than then.

    Back in the day the only difference between white and black label was black was a little younger and a bit lighter in proof.

    How long has it been open?

    No clue, unfortunately. It was given to the owner by his grandfather as a gift. The previous owner doesn't drink, so I guess it was only drank by guests maybe. We haven't tried it yet, but the nose on it is really great.

    That's encouraging but yes, only tasting will tell.

    Opened a bottle of GD12 last night an enjoyed a couple of pours. The initial nose reminded us of the distillery tour.

    Made a stop at he Dickel Distillery today. Enjoyed the tour but unfortunately they weren't operational as they were doing some cleaning and maintenance.

    Gift Shop had the new corn whisky but I passed. They also noted they were out of the Single barrel 14yo in the Gift Shop and that all current barrels were now spoken for. The 9yo was going for the princely sum of $98.99. Seemed a wee bit steep making me wish I had picked up one in Nashville where it was only $39.99! Same store had the 14yo as well but don't recall the price.

    Decided to pass on everything at the GS as a result.

    All the talk lately is these single barrels, but I went back to the regular old Barrel Select this past week and was mighty impressed, especially with the nose. Just gorgeous. It's a solid choice in the $40 range. Also tried the new white corn whisky, which is pleasant for the genre, but not necessarily my cup o tea.
