George Dickel Bourbon Whisky Aged 8 Years

$32.95 $34.95

Here’s a rarity from Tennessee, a handcrafted, small-batch, 8-year Bourbon! You heard us right, Dickel doesn’t just make Tennessee whisky, this amber dram is built for Bourbon enthusiasts with sweet notes of vanilla leading the way into cherry and orange laced depths balanced by almond toffee and oak. Great on the rocks or in an Old Fashioned, or just for messing with folks’ minds. Just don’t tell Kentucky.

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.

Whiskey Advocate

Nicole Austin hasn’t rested on her laurels since George Dickel Bottled in Bond won Whisky of the Year in 2019, continuing to create great and affordable whiskeys at Cascade Hollow Distillery. This is notably a bourbon rather than a Tennessee whiskey, though the criteria for the two styles mostly overlap. The nose is nutty and well spiced, with caramel corn, toasted pecans, cinnamon graham crackers, cherry tart, and butterscotch candies. There is a friendliness to the palate that makes it ideal for outdoor imbibing, with notes of spearmint, mixed berries, nougat, and honey. Big spice on the finish makes this a memorable sip.
