    Just because some consider it to be an off flavor while others are not sensitive to it doesn't mean that it doesn't exist.

    Our tasters are as different as our personalities.
    I have a multiple personality disorder. Sometimes I get a lot of mint in rye and I love it. Sometimes I find it disagreeable. Sometimes I can't even detect it. And that's all from the same bottle.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    or, maybe I just like vitamins....
    I never heard it described that way either... until I came here. My description of the note (that I think is being described) has always been "earthy". I just know that when I drink it I like it, alway have and hope that I always will.

    I started with the Dickel hand selected barrel as my intorduction to Dickel. the 9 year one....

    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?

    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.

    Pretty much nailed it!! Trying them all side by side was enlightening

    Always good advice in this environment. I passed on both today, but admit to being mighty tempted (especially since the Fox has been drooling over it so much).

    When school finishes, I'm gonna sell a few more custom wiring harnesses and hope to go stock myself up on it. I hate the thought of not finding this stuff anymore, and hope its a regular release.


    Does anyone on here know the contact email for Dickel? The link on their site has never worked since I've been looking.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    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.
