    George Dickel Private Barrel Selection Program

    I heard recently from a pretty good source that Dickel will be launching a Private Barrel Selection Program under their "Barrel Select" label sometime this Summer. There will be two offerings: A 9 year at 103ish proof, and a 14 yr at 106ish proof. These were described as "nearly barrel proof", but a little water will be added to the barrels to try and maintain certain "profiles". Something new to look forward to, I guess.
    Caveat: I may be off on the proofs and ages, as this discussion was after a few, or more, whiskies...

    Also, the Red Label Dickel is history.

    Both of those sound good and I hope become available. As for the Red, good riddance.

    This is good news high proof 9 and 14 year select releases both sound tasty,as for the Cascade Hollow never found it to worth anything anyway.Dickel seems to be listening and playing the marketing game well,lets hope the pricing reflects this also and keeps it within reasonable realms.

    Actually Joe, these are for private selections. I didn't take it that they would be avail in stores, but rather, selected by individuals.

    Not doubting your source Joe...or I guess I am . Find it a bit odd that Dickel, without a current single barrel product, would start a private barrel selection program of single barrels versus (I know, I know, versus...I can't help it ) selling themselves. Anyway, considering their Dickel Barrel Reserve label is from 10 barrels, 86 proof and nas (but from barrels selected in 2006?), priced here at $40...I'd expect the 14 year-106 proof will not be a bargain buy for anybody, barrel buyers or by the bottle, and in the $100 a bottle range.

    I would guess stores like TPS, Binny's etc would buy the barrels and make them available to the general public. I hope so at least

    Right. Good point VG. There's no reason that certain retailers couldn't pick their own, like they do other barrels. So, these could be available in stores.
