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.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is an adult dessert of warm caramel sauce, baking spices, and tons of orange zest.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
On the palate, marmalade arrives brightly at first followed by rich notes of fresh pumpkin spices, cream-filled Danish, and pecan pralines.
The finish is long and decadent.
