  • Excerpt: The palate is chewy and full-bodied, pepped up with cinnamon and dried ginger, and lengthened by grape jelly, Coca-Cola, Corn Nuts, and dried cherries. A full and lengthy finish sings with ginger, peanuts, and chocolaty oak.

  • Excerpt: If you add a splash of water, you get some nutty aromas as well. But you can absolutely drink this as is. Really solid whiskey. If the price is right, pick up a bottle.

  • Excerpt: It’s not quite as balanced as the well-layered Bottled in Bond, but this is a single barrel, after all. Your mileage will certainly vary with these, but for 15-year-old single barrel American whiskey of this quality, it’s hard to imagine a better value right now.

  • Excerpt: Honestly, this is impressive stuff. While it could have a bit more body on the palate, all the right notes are here and the age has helped reign in those mineral Dickel notes without becoming a tannin bomb. Really well done.

  • Intro:

    Distilled by Dickel and released at an extremely lucrative price point - it's hard for whiskey drinkers not to assimilate this bottling with a gem of the past - old bottlings of Knob Creek Single Barrel with teenage age statements and $55 price points. Weighing in at 15 years old, this particular batch is bottled at 50.4% ABV and procured locally for $62.99.

  • Nose:

    Sweet honey, powerful butterscotch, brown butter and toffee candies for days. No sign of minerality, just pure dessert.

  • Taste:

    Moderate mouthfeel, caramel and waffle cone, cocoa and orange peel. Light Dickel minerality, but nothing too crazy - something many will rejoice in.

  • Finish:

    Long, oak driven finish with cocoa, honey nut cheerios, toffee and a light butterscotch drizzle.

  • Overall:

    Honestly, this is impressive stuff. While it could have a bit more body on the palate, all the right notes are here and the age has helped reign in those mineral Dickel notes without becoming a tannin bomb. Really well done.
