    Re: Dickel Rye Not Delayed

    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.

    Well it's on my buy list, just a matter of time.

    I saw Dickel Rye on the shelf in VA last week, and in MI stores for ~2 wks. now.

    Re: Dickel Rye Not Delayed

    Sighted in Hawaii, and at the better price, too! I thought about picking it up, but had my heart set on some more discounted EWSB 2002. I guess I'd better go back and spring for a bottle to complete my low-end Dickel set (Dickel 8 & Dickel 12).

Very good stuff for the price and a good alternative for those of us that like Bulleit Rye or any of the other MGP/LDI ryes.
    Just got it last night when the rep dropped by. They're just now beginning to roll it out in North Florida. My tasting notes are pretty much dead on with yours, Ethan. I posted them last night in the "What Rye Are You Drinking.." thread. The charcoal mellowing gave it away in a blind tasting with Bulleit and Baby Saz. I think it's going to be around $23-$24 here ... a good buy. BTW .. rep tells me their big states are in the south and Alabama on top of the list for what it's worth.

    Just because a couple of boys from Alabama and Mississippi don't know any Dickel drinkers it doesn't mean they know the market. After all, we are connoisseurs for the most part.

    If I ever get through my bottle of Ritt I'll give this stuff a shot.

    When it gets to Tuscaloosa it will be within reach.

    Re: Dickel Rye Not Delayed

    I saw this a couple of weeks ago. but only recently tried it. I think it is similar to the other ryes from Lawrenceburg such as Bulleit, or Willett. It seems like there is almost no alcohol burn for 90 proof; maybe from maple charcoal filtering. It's also sort of sweet, but not cloying. I like it. I'm glad Dickel bottled this at 90, and aged the whiskey enough.

    To me, the best thing about it is the price. Just makes me think that all of these independents who take the same whiskey and charge $50 for it have an unsustainable business model.

    1+ and I couldn't agree more,it's nice to have another product on the shelf in the low $20 under a major label that is this good and widely available.
