    Re: George Dickel Private Barrel Selection Program

    Got a couple bottles. I was disappointed at first because ii was all alcohol burn... way out of balance and much more so than one would expect for the proof. Adding water lessened the burn but brought out a sodden wood, sooty (from the LCP?) taste.

    dgonano discovered that this one improves greatly after some air gets in the bottle. Now I find it a very nice pour. Definitely the Dickel profile but (as one would expect} richer and more complex. Lots of dark caramel and cherry on the nose. Dave found the finish to be too short but I found it to be medium length. Recommended.

    Since this is a single barrel bottling (actual a "small batch", "single barrel" a la WTRRSmBSB ---- and "hand-crafted" to boot!) it'll be interesting to see how other bottlings compare.

    The 14 or the 9? Not having tried Dickel before, think i may take a chance on the 9.

    Was this in KY? I am very interested in trying one. Big fan of Dickel 12.

    Re: George Dickel Private Barrel Selection Program

    Wow... been sampling some Dickel SB 9 yo. If you like Dickel, this is the pour you've always dreamed of.

    This IS Dickel. Grown up and reached maturity. A higher proof. Multi-faceted and complete. The WTRR101 of Dickeldom... if that makes any sense.

    Now the 14 yo is another animal.... righteous in its own self. A cousin who is welcome at the family gathering but is different enough to be looked at a little askance. Hey, he's OK but, ya know, we all knew that Uncle George (his Dad) was kin but he was always a little, ya know, "different".

    Both of these are great pours. Both are recommended.

    Looks like I'm going to need a bottle of that 9 as well. Heard that one is the winner of the two several times over.

    I feel the wind swaying me toward the nine as well.
