I know Dickel is primarily sold in the South, perhaps Alabama is the exception.
Back to the rye, it is a good drink. Poured myself some the other night and wasn't really thinking about it when I took the first swig and it was, in fact, a swig. "Wow," thought I, "that's a lot of flavor." More mint, almost wintergreen, than standard MGPI rye. That doesn't mean the charcoal put mint in, but rather that it stripped away something the absence of which made the mint pop.
