  • Intro:

    Distilled in the Fall season of 2005, this bottling is 13 years old and carries the enviable bottled in bond designation. Produced by Dickel in Tennessee, this affordable limited edition was a surprise to see pop up, and a welcome sight to many whiskey fans.

  • Nose:

    Heavy on char, peaches, some minerality and a touch of caramel. Woody, mineral forward.

  • Taste:

    Crisp and dry on the palate, a bit of dry oak. Medium mouth feel. Honey, crisp peaches, orange peel and pepper. Chalky and Dickel, with the Dickel turned up a couple notches.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, dry and oaky. Orange and fruits, paired with a copper and vitamin note, carry for a good deal of time.

  • Overall:

    I like this, but think it could be a bit better balanced. This is Dickel with those polarizing vitamin notes really dominating the profile. Fans will love it, for sure, but I could use a bit more balance to feel like it's really hitting its stride.
