    Re: Dickel Rye Not Delayed

    It's MGPI rye, but the charcoal filtering changes it. Not bad. Worth $20. Somebody posted something about hearing it was delayed, but I can't recall who or where.

    $26.99 at Binny's not including all our local taxes. Old Medley 12 year has arrived there too...$49.99 at 86.8 proof. Along with even more new micros or Potemkins (Belle Meade, Brecklen, Waitsburg, Headframe Spirits/Neversweat). Makes that $13.99 Barton BIB I walked out with, taste that much better.

    Suggest retail is $24.99. I guess Binny's doesn't take suggestions. That's what happens when you've bought out all of the competition.

    We actually got something that is new? Someone at the liquor control division obviously needs to be fired.

    Re: Dickel Rye Not Delayed

    It's $20 out here. Here's a review: http://recenteats.blogspot.com/2013/01/dickel-rye.html

    Bottom line: Pretty similar to Bulleit, not surprisingly, making me wonder if it's the exact same stuff run through the sugar-maple. In a head to head I actually liked Bulleit better as the Dickel had a strong pickle juice nose and a little too bold mint on the finish. The Bulleit was more balanced.

    Not to worry, if it doesn't sell as well as watermelon whipped cream flavored vodka it will quickly be pulled.

    Especially the double casked version, oak really brings out that watermelon rind whang.

    It showed up at Martignetti Liquors on Soldiers Field Road in Boston last week; I can't remember the price on the shelf tag.
