A GREAT American Single Barrel Bourbon that delivers quality and value.

George Dickel immigrated to the United States from Germany in 1844 where he started a small retail business. Within a few years he started buying regional Whiskies wholesale and reselling them to bars and restaurants. In 1888, Dickel’s company bought out one of his suppliers — the Cascade Hollow Distillery. 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. In 1956, the company returned to Tennessee, rebuilt the distillery, and adopted the Lincoln County process to become an official Tennessee Whisky. Today, the brand and distillery are owned by Diageo.

With a pedigree like George Dickel’s, it’s not surprising that they have amassed a tidy stockpile of aged Spirits. Over the last several years we have seen a strategic move on their part to start deploying those older casks into special offerings. And now we have a brand new one: George Dickel Single Barrel 15 Year Old.

This is the classic Dickel Bourbon — 84% corn, 8% rye, 8% malted barley — aged in new oak for a full fifteen years. It has all the aroma and flavors that Dickel Bourbon is know for, but a lot more of them. And since it is a single barrel edition each batch is strictly limited and proof and flavor notes will vary a bit which is part of the fun.

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.
Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 percent rye. The grain gives Rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. It was a big seller before Prohibition, and after decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. Fun fact: George Washington distilled Rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.
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.
An un-aged American Whisky is often called “white dog.”Sour Mash 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.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
