  • Excerpt: The cask strength non-chill filtered whiskey geek in me wants to reject this thing with all I have and I just can’t do it. Hell this is my second bottle this year.

  • Excerpt: With its tawny hue, smooth caramel and maple notes braced up with a slight oaky edge and buttery finish, this is a whiskey to savor. Try it in a Manhattan.

  • Excerpt: Overall, not bad. Not a ton going on here, but works in a pinch. Probably best as a mixer, if you’re going to pick up a Dickel under $20, grab the 12yr!

  • Intro:

    Distilled by Dickel and aged for 8 years, this release from George Dickel doesn’t sport Bourbon on the label which is curious.

  • Nose:

    Orange peel, honey, oats, a bit of chalky character, and a bit of caramel.

  • Taste:

    Thin on the palate, no heat. Some good flavor though - vanilla bean, some honey and leather, a hint of citrus zest and pepper.

  • Finish:

    Short finish. No heat again, but not a ton of flavor here either.

  • Overall:

    Overall, not bad. Not a ton going on here, but works in a pinch. Probably best as a mixer, if you’re going to pick up a Dickel under $20, grab the 12yr!
