  1. George Dickel Hand Selected Barrel 9 Year

    Store pick from One Stop in Johnson City, TN. Not a super strong anything on this dram. Eminently drinkable, but don’t look for too much complexity. Has the typical Dickel mineral/vitamin note, but it’s tamer than in other whiskeys from the line. Decent midrange bourbon, but there are better out there for the price.

    Keep coming back to this mainly because my wife loves it. I like it, but less than I used to. Mostly, I get grape jolly rancher. I think this is due to the comparison with other tastes of late—big, charry, rich, oily, spicy bourbons. It’s well done for its type, I guess, but it’s fruity profile is less attractive than it used to be. Anyone else get that grape candy note?

    Light nose of caramel. Amazing mouth feel. Super oily with BIG legs! Big cinnamon on the palate. Think fireball or red hot. Medium to long finish with a warm hug and more spice. One of my favorite tastes of all time. The mouth feel rocks!

    Nose: smells like what it is: corn, pineapple and sugar, but lacks complexity. Palate: mostly corn on the palate, little to no spice in the first sip, but a little builds through the dram, pineapple again (meh) Finish: flabby and sweet. The warm hug surprises though

    I get pineapple upside down cake on the nose, and a touch of passionfruit(?). I think I’d like the nose more if these scents were richer, more intense, but it’s a great entree to a light, hot weather sipper. A bit more fruit on the palate, but mostly char and spice. Medium heat. Brief finish with a little more spice and some subtle changes as a light hug grabs you on the way down.

    Nose reminds me of my grandfather’s homemade peach brandy, which I used to sneak a nip of from time to time as a kid. Also apple and pear notes. A tinge of citrus emerges on the palate with the perfect level of heat and spice. Pleasant, mid-length finish with lingering spice—and a surprising chocolate note that hits quickly between palate and finish, when I’m careful to get the taste to the back of my tongue.

    The nose is pure bulk bin store peanut butter—mostly the oil. Surprisingly little ethanol vapor for the proof, and easy to huff. Palate is more peanut butter with some vanilla and brown sugar, and a little touch of citrus. Finish is spicy and dry, short to medium length and yep—more peanut butter. Lacking the complexity I’d hoped for.

    Oak, raisins and nectarine on the nose. Spice, spice, heat, heat, and more heat on the plate. One of the longest, spiciest finishes I’ve encountered. Heat is surprising for this proof. I’ve had much less heat from 130+-proof drama.

    Nose of sweet caramel and brown sugar nicely balanced with wood and char. More brown sugar and a hint of citrus on the palate. VERY rich! If you love a rich bourbon, this is for you. Mid-length finish with a mild oaky astringency. So satisfying.
