As smooth as Tennessee Whisky gets. 

Trailing the breadcrumbs to his American Dream, a German-born merchant named George Dickel immigrated to the United States in 1844. Making his way up the chain, he lay down the first stones of George A. Dickel and Company in Cascade Hollow, Tennessee. He was quite a peculiar guy, insisting on the traditional Scottish spelling of Whisky (the “e” is silent), distinguishing himself from other local businesses while at the same time chiseling his name right next to the world’s finest Scotch producers. He also liked his Whiskies distilled in the wintertime because he believed that made them smoother - again making the product an exception, as it was the only Tennessee Whisky that was chilled before being put in the charcoal-mellowing vats. And well, it was marketed to be just as “Mellow as Moonlight,” so that must count for something. Peculiar we said, not unwise.

Their new 17-year-old is based on a traditional Dickel recipe, consisting of 84% corn, 8% rye, and 8% malted barley. Filtered through sugar maple charcoal, then aged in the hidden, time-forgotten barrels of Bourbon, the end result is a superb mixture of balance and complexity. Bottled at 92 proof, this fabulous-tasting Whisky is a very rare one, infused with the quintessential Dickel character and neatly layered with tastes of toffee, peppery spice, and charred oak. "

is the fermentation process by which a percentage of a previous fermentation is added to a new batch as a "starter" to get the fermentation going and maintain a level of consistency from batch to batch. A sweet mash means that only fresh yeast is added to a new batch to start fermentation.
Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but final filtering through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates them. Tennessee Whiskey’s finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.
American companies usually spell “Whiskey” with the “e” before the “y.” George Dickel products use the Scottish spelling “Whisky” (without the “e”) on purpose because George thought that his products were just as good as any from Scotland.
George Washington was a man of many talents being both a military braniac and the First President of the United States. Interestingly, he also became the largest Whiskey producer in the United States after leaving the politics.
All George Dickel products are aged on site (cool and dry), but the George Dickel Rye Whisky is distilled in Indiana, due to the unique specifications Rye’s temperamental character requires.
Corn Whiskey is a commercial product that must contain at least 80% corn, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof), and, if wood-aged, may be aged in either used or new un-charred barrels.
