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.
