If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.
At first, I found it a bit odd. "sooty" was the descriptor I could best come up with. A little reminiscent of a campfire the next morning after a little misting overnight. Two or three drinks into it, I discovered I reaaaaally liked it, but I no longer even notice a 'sootiness' to it, and have no idea what the vitamin reference is. All that matters is that I like it.
Now, I just want to know are the 9 and 14 year Dickels something that's gonna be kept on the shelves, or was it just a one time thing. Anyone know?
Stock up, there's no guarantee.
We're Bourbon Geeks, it's who we are, it's what we do.
Left to right: BT; Bernheim; S-W?
Left to right: Sooty (yuck); Mmm the ashtray aftertaste is gone!; Wow, this is what W12 used to taste like!
Is that pretty much it?
I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.
Does anyone on here know the contact email for Dickel? The link on their site has never worked since I've been looking.

I finished off a 375 of Fighting Cock, on purpose, since it's the only near-empty 375 I have on hand. I wanted it empty so I can refill it from a bottle of A. Smith Bowman Bourbon I bought a few years ago (and sold half to my son, Gary). He'll be up from Marietta in a few weex, then he'll be able to take his half-bottle of this fabulous juice (IMHO) home with him.
FYI I like the FC pretty well for fairly reasonable dollars. Might have to grab a replacement.
