George Dickel No. 12
George Dickel // Tennessee, USA
This Tennessee whisky (their spelling) is made from a mash bill of 84% corn, 8% rye, and 8% barley. Of course, as this is a Tennessee whisky, it does go through the Lincoln County process of filtering through sugar maple charcoal. However, instead of the whisky being continuously dripped through a large vat of charcoal like Jack Daniels, Dickel distillate is placed in a vat along with the charcoal and allowed to sit for a few days before it is drained.
TennesseeProduced in Tennessee; mash grain at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak barrels; filtered through maple charcoal prior to aging.
Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"On the nose you'll find corn, sweet-cream butter and nutmeg. The palate is full of oak with the charred sugars from the wood really standing out along with nutmeg-dusted custard. The finish is moderate in length with the same flavors found on the palate."
