George Dickel 9-year Tennessee Whisky BH Private Selection

$64.95

Richly textured and full-flavored, you're going to fall hard for this private selection we made on our last visit to Tullahoma. This is signature George Dickel at its finest. Big, robust tones of candied apple, aromas of dried orange peel and spice with a hint of dark dried fruits and molasses. Always one of the great values in our single barrel program, this yielded a scant 150 bottles or so, you’ll want to dive in with both feet!

Contrary to popular belief, there are several producers of American whiskey in the state of Tennessee. In fact, prior to Prohibition, George Dickel was the largest of them all. In an effort to resurrect the Dickel brand, Master Distiller John Lunn has gone back through old distillery records to find the exact milling, yeasting, fermentation and distillation regimen that George himself used back in the good ol' days. He is also following the old distillery saying that "Time isn't measured in hours, days or months, but in years. Patience is not only a virtue, but also the essential ingredient in making the finest Tennessee whisky." If George were alive today, he'd be proud of the whiskey that bears his name.
