Thread: George Dickel

    Re: George Dickel

    The regular Barrel Select has always been too sweet for me. And at 86 proof a little light on proof

    I do like the Barrel Select and it's something I recommend but I prefer the brighter style and higher proof of No. 12.

    Me too. Absolutely, there is more flavor, at least to me, in No. 12. That said the Barrel Select is a fine whiskey.

    This one's for you Doug.

    I was at the Binny's get together yesterday. One of the magic carts included a bottle of their 14 year old Dickle Barrel Select SB. I made it a point to try it. I have to admit that it caught me a little bit off guard. To be completely honest, I wasn't expecting very much. While the chalky, vitamin taste was still present to me, it was very well balanced, and offset by a nice pleasant sweetness. Very reminiscent of something wheated. It was all in all a very pleasant surprise. I wish they had bought a barrel of the 9 year old too. It would have been nice to compare the two. I almost bought a bottle, but the price point was just a bit too much for me to justify. I opted for a FR's SB instead.

    Cheers! Joe

    thanks for the notes! I havent seen any 14 year here, they vanished as soon as they hit the shelves it seemed. at $65, I doubt Id buy one anyway, you know how I am with $50+ whiskey! But, Id love to try it.

    what's a Binny's magic cart?
