    Re: George Dickel Private Barrel Selection Program

    Im enjoying the 14 a lot, but it needs serious time in glass first. That flinty/mineral/vitamin/baby aspirin note that some find in the 12 is just out of control here otherwise. When that blows off it's just sweet honey goodness. I also found the finish to be decent length, but have seen many others describe it as short. All in all though it's a damned fine pour.

    Re: George Dickel Private Barrel Selection Program

    I find the same over the top "chewable vitamin" in the BS myself,far more prominent than in the #12 and it has never faded one iota.I hope yours with some open time begins to mellow and maybe the proof increase will have some positive effect.

    I asked the staff at TPS (they have both the 9 and the 14), which they preferred. Give the guy credit, he was brutally honest "i can't stand Dickel, so i might not be the guy to check with, but i hear both barrels of the select are awesome!".

    Hands were full with some other choices, so i passed for now.

    Re: George Dickel Private Barrel Selection Program

    I was down in TN for business last week and stopped off at the Distillery and got a couple bottles of the 14 year. Barrel #2. Wow! If you like Dickel 12 you should love this. Definitely amped up with a nice burn. Much more oakiness than the 12 but that's a good thing in my book. The honey/vitamin taste is still there in the finish so its definitely got the Dickel taste. The finish on this is great with that Dickel flavor lasting a long time. I've got a bottle of the 9 year old on order, when I get it I'll do a tasting of the 14, the 9 the Special Barrel Reserve 10 year and the Barrel select.

    That will be a 5 star level tasting.

    About a quarter a way into the bottle and the uber-vitamin quality has all but disappeared. Drinking mighty fine tonight.

    Ryan, are you suggesting the two will be making an appearance in the Chicagoland region at that time? I am very keen on getting a 9 myself.

    Sean is correct,I say there is no time like the present and if I see them down in Kentucky they are coming home with me most immediately.I'm sure our favorite Chicagoland Retailer will get some,but hey I'm an impatient guy.That and it will just be another good excuse for me to buy more once they do arrive.
