    Re: Where's Your Dickel?

    Very little no. 8, except for some old dusties here and there. No. 12 is in about half the stores it should be, and Barrel Select I have never paid attention to, but I think there's some around.

    I've seen no sign of Cascade Hollow yet.

    Re: Where's Your Dickel?

    Thought I saw a few bottles of Barrel Select the last time I was in Sam's Highland Park. When I got it last summer, I had to special order it from the Skokie Binny's store; the manager there is pretty good at special orders. Had it within a week.

    Re: Where's Your Dickel?

    We've had no difficulty, thus far, stocking the #12 in all sizes. The #8 is gone to us -- only stores who stocked 'long' (including a local one, not far from me), has any available -- but the 3yo, age-stated Cascade Hollow has been the reliable substitute. Frankly, if anyone's noticed without my prompting, I'm unaware of it. I suspect that's what Diageo/Dickel intended.
    I still see the original (flask bottle) Barrel Select here and there, the current anywhere that wants to stock it.

    Re: Where's Your Dickel?

    If you see the No. 8 on the shelf, you aren't likely to see the Cascade Hollow until that runs out. It's the replacement.

    It looks pretty much the same, except it has no 8 on it, it has some red on the label, and there's an age statement (on the side, I think).

    12 seems readily available in the LA area. No 8 though.

    Haven't had any No. 8 in KC in months. I bought a 750 bottle of No. 12 last week for 18.99.

    After all this talk about Dickel I went back there and got me a bottle of that No. 12 today.

    It is not in MI but I'd like to have a bottle of Cascade Hollow, (hint, hint, hint)

    Re: Where's Your Dickel?

    I saw a few bottles of the barrel select in my regular liquor haunt this week but didn't pay any attention to any #8 or #12. Out here they tend to put bottles wherever they will fit...

    No problem to get no 8 or 12 here in Europe. Barrel select is also available now if you are prepared to pay 100 euro + shipping from Germany.

    Re: Where's Your Dickel?

    Any Dickel available in Europe is apparently gray market export, as Diageo's official position is that it is a US-only brand.
