    As I recall, and as the website seems to confirm, the original cask strength version of Rumble was something of an accident as a several "forgotten" barrels (stop me if you have heard this story before...) of Rumble were discovered and found to be delicious and so mingled and bottled as a special cask strength edition.

    Presumably subsequent limited edition batches have been a bit more intentional!

    Dickel 14 yr to finish up. On my short list for American Whiskey (bourbon) of the Year. Gorgeous whiskey. The 9 year is nice, but the 14 has more body and depth to it. One of the most chewy whiskies I've ever tasted, and the finish is beyond spectacular.

    rub it in, joe.....

    If I ever saw one of the 14 year Dickels, I think Id be inclined to ignore my $50 rule. With the 9 year being my favorite whiskey of all, Id have to know what the 14 year is like.

    Binnys Did two 14yrs, one was woody, one was spicy. We picked a barrel for the bar and split it with West Lakeview Liquors in Chicago (they may have some left) I think they were selling them for $75. Its on the spicy side, reminds me more of old rye than a dickel mash.
    Bourbon only requires a glass.

    I haven't tried the 9 year, but I agree that the 14 year is terrific. It didn't wow me at first sip, but it has blossomed after being open for a couple of months. Great stuff, and fairly priced IMO at around $70.

    I tried the TPS Dickel 9 and 14 SBS, and preferred the profile of the 9, particularly for the difference in price. However, I've come to like it less. Other American whiskeys I hit on occasion: Stranhan's, Charbay R5, Balcone's Baby Blue.

    Having a nightcap of Vermont Night. It's a local (Spirits of St. Louis) whiskey based product with some spices and maple syrup added. Very interesting. Makes for a nice nightcap and could be interesting in a cocktail.
