    Where's Your Dickel?

    Can you find any Dickel where you are? Or is your Dickel coming up short? I think we all know how uncomfortable that can be.

    I spoke to Gene Song, brand manager at Diageo for Dickel and Bulleit. He said the shortage of Dickel No. 8 has not abated. They're still waiting for whiskey to be ready. The younger Cascade Hollow Recipe is selling well. They haven't decided whether or not the Cascade recipe will remain after they have sufficiently resupplied No. 8, but they certainly seem to be leaning in that direction.

    As for the shortages of Dickel No. 12, that people have reported here and elsewhere, Song isn't willing to say there is an official shortage, but supplies are tight. Basically, Dickel has been enjoying its share of the bourbon boom. The surprising part is that it is not export-driven. Dickel is sold only in the USA.

    So, any Dickel sightings where you are?

    Re: Where's Your Dickel?

    I just saw some No. 12 yesterday.
    I don't know if it is recent stock or if it has been sitting there awhile.
    But I haven't seen any No. 8 in my area for a long long time.

    No obvious shortages in my haunts. I have seen much of all 3. Surprising is the amount of the Barrel Select I have seen--lots of it.

    I haven't seen a shortage of the No. 12, but I have seen a price increase.

    I checked out the Cascade Hollow bottle. It sits on the shelf where the No. 8 did, and it's priced the same, and it looks a lot like it.

    #8 disappeared from this area when the shortage was first announced. #12 has continuously been around since but took a 7.00 a bottle hike in price. Barrel Select has also been available since its relaunch and has also inched up in price since appearing on the market. No Cascade Hollow around here but will be getting a regular bottle and a mini (for my collection) next week when my parents travel through Va. Dickel isn't my favorite but will have one of each version on hand after next week!

    I don't know anything about that situation but in Pennsylvania, The Dickel #12 and Barrel Select are available by special order. Due to added fees and having to order a certain number of bottles that special order process can be prohibitive to the casual buyer. I've checked out some stores in Delaware and Maryland over the last year and I've never seen the #8. I would estimate that I see the #12 about 65% of the time and I have only seen the barrel select in one store.

    In that store the Barrel Select goes for 20$ and I'm starting to wonder if that is a must buy. I'm not really looking for any more Tennesee Whiskey but maybe thats too good of a deal to pass up. It's not however a must buy if the B.S. is not better than the #12.

    All three Dickel products (8, 12 and BS) are readily available in SE Texas.

    I see the 12 out here all the time. Not the same for the Cascade Hollow which I had never even heard of until this thread, any info other than the name?

    The last time I noticed, there was plenty of the No 8 and No 12 Dickel, here, but none of the fancy bottling(s).
