Dickel 8 and 12 have become available down here. I know and like GD12 but I'm looking for thoughts on the current GD8.

Is it an alright sipper? How does it stand up to a cola. Looks like I can get 1L bottles for a good price for Down Under and it could be the new well whiskey.

Comparisons to EWB, the current daily driver, would be useful.
