    Dickel 8

    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.

    Cheers,
    Morgs

    I cut my teeth on Dickel and never met one I didn't like. Its a great sipper (or mixer) and is especially nice out of the freezer, fridge or cooler on a hot summer day!

    I'll take Dickel 8 over any version of Jack Daniels any day.

    Re: Dickel 8

    Having just opened a handle of Dickel 8, some thoughts:

    More Jack-like than GD12, but better than Jack. A little hotter than EWB but with a really nice balance of flavors (corn, vanilla, maple and char). Oh, and lots of that "vitamin" note that Dickel is known for. Compared to EWB it's younger, hotter, but a wider range of flavors. More interesting, if less refined. Would maked a great mixer.

    The general consensus locally among Bourbon drinkers is Dickel 12 is for drinking and 8 is for mixing.

    I prefer the 8 over the 12. I really liked cascade hollow, and I imagine I will like the new corn whiskey they are coming out with that is basically their white dog charcoal mellowed.

    Tom do you know if that's the regular Dickel mash bill?

    It's supposed to be the regular mash bill. Straight unaged Dickel

    Being as the regular mash bill is more than 80% corn that would qualify as corn whisky, interesting approach to the market.
