George Dickel Rye Whiskey is a lesson in smooth southern charm.

George Dickel immigrated to the United States from Germany in 1844 where he started a small retail business. He added liquor to his his products in 1861, and the product line did very well. Within a few years he started buying regional Whiskeys wholesale and reselling to to bars and restaurants. In 1888, Dickel’s company bought out one of their suppliers — the Cascade Hollow Distillery. Things went well until the dark days of Prohibition forced them to close things down. When prohibition ended, the distillery was sold and the Bourbon renamed in honor of their founder — George A. Dickel’s Cascade Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Today, the brand and distillery are owned by the Diageo mega-corp.

George Dickel Rye Whiskey is the only Dickel branded product not made at the Cascade Distillery. Like many American premium Rye Whiskeys, George Dickel Rye hales from MGP in Indiana — Rye is a notoriously fickle grain and requires an expert touch. But once the distillate is made, it follows the classic Dickel formula of cool filtration through sugar-maple charcoal and ageing in dark, #4 char casks. If that sounds familiar, it’s because those are the same specs as Tennessee-style Whiskey, which makes George Dickel Rye smooth and mellow, even at 45% ABV.

Jason,
Good inexpensive rye.

Don,
Outrageous maple, vanilla, and cream flavor. Really outstandingly smooth flavor. Very sweet which might put some people off but still absolutely fantastic in my eyes.

Normally drink Macallan. Tried Dickel Rye and fell in love with it! Wonderful substitute for the MUCH MUCH more expensive Macallan! Nice everyday/before bed drinker. $23.00 per bottle in my local.

Margaret,
Being my first Rye whisky I do not have anything to really compare it to. It was smooth neat and had good character with a bit of water added. Good starting point for me to try more Ryes in the future.

Eric,
I truly don't understand why this is rated so low (6 at the time of writing). This is a very smooth, rather inexpensive rye that has a desirable replay value on the tongue.

Cédric,
It is way behind Rittenhouse 100. I am surprised Flaviar does not list "dill" the description, it is the first thing that jumps on the nose, too much in my opinion
Dan
Dan,
Good solid rye, great in cocktails or neat. But definitely not $34 around here; I can pick it up for under $30...

THis stuff is fantastic. I moved to Nashville a year ago and found Dickel #12. I use Dickel's rye for Mahatten's and Old Fashioneds. Or drink it neat late at night around the fireplace.

I actually just picked up a bottle to try last night, and I must say, it was excellent. I have been a bourbon drinker and this was my first foray into rye. It's definitely something I'll keep on hand. George Dickel's Old No. 12 is already on my must have list. It has a flavor that can't be beat for the price.

I would love to try it but no job so there for no scotch. I will one day. Thanks for the email
