I have always said, when they change a label, the whiskey changes too. I love dickel black label. I bought a handle of the new label a couple weeks back, I thought it was lacking in richness. I was on a trip up north last weekend and stopped in a small store. They had the older label, bottled in 08. It had that good dickel taste. Got home, tried them side by side, had several others do it too, something is amiss in the new stuff. If I guessed, they upped barrel proof to help with demand. The color is a liitle off. It is not younger, as I like young dickel, cascade was the best they had. I have samples all the way back to the 60's. I tasted them. This is the biggest change I noted. I better go back and clean that store out, I love me some dickel. Anybody else noticed a change?
