    Re: Dickel Rye Not Delayed

    Good product. Definitely shows the LDI pedigree - that "Blue Tide" scent and taste I always get in its ryes - but the maple charcoal treatment post-dumping does add a certain something. Excellent value.

    Plus, I can see this would make an excellent Manhattan.

    Better than a Crimson Tide scent. Ew.

    Oh yes, like a fresh sea breeze. It's unmistakeable IMO.

    I saw this on a shelf in a store here today. We have #12 and Special barrel reserve too but no #8!

    Just picked some up. I like it quite a bit. Nice complexity of flavors and great finish with noticeable toasty oak.

    Re: Dickel Rye Not Delayed

    Now I'm having it with some Sprite. It's a really nice mixer too.

    I've heard that rye is always a good mixer. I don't know why that is, but it seems to be true.

    The flavor is there, but subtle, and compliments the lemon/lime sweetness of the soft drink perfectly.

    Re: Dickel Rye Not Delayed

    I've had this for a month and a half now, enjoying about 4 pours. Today, I notice it has opened up. Rather than tasting the muted or muffled taste I had ascribed to post-barrel charcoal-filtering, that off-flavor has vanished and I am really enjoying this bottle. I haven't hit it for a couple weeks and it's better now. Sweeter, fruitier and spicier. I guess I'm liking ryes. The flavor was delayed!

    Re: Dickel Rye Not Delayed

    I'm still learning to appreciate and identify the differences between bourbon and rye. This is all new to me. I now have three different ryes, Dickel, WT 81, and JB 80. Now that I have tasted all three I can honestly say they are similar, and I could pretty easily be able to taste a rye next to a bourbon and quickly tell which is which. I like the Dickel best of the three. So far, these are the only ryes I have ever tasted.

    To you seasoned professionals this probably sounds very elementary, but to me it's a big deal.

    I can now even taste different bourbons and identify which bottle they came from. I could not have done that even three weeks ago.

    Re: Dickel Rye Not Delayed

    I really like rye whisky in general, but the mint in this Dickel Rye is overwhelming to me. Too much I think.
