George Dickel 15 Year Tennessee Single Barrel
Tennessee Whiskey — Tennessee, USA
Reviewed April 12, 2023 (edited April 13, 2023)
What started as mineral astringent verging on sour for the first, oh, 25% of the bottle, rounded out into a nicely oaked, creamy Tennessee whiskey through the middle 50%. However, the final quarter of the bottle returned to that over-oaked musty grape Flinstones vitamin flavor that I don’t enjoy from Dickel products. It’s a single barrel, and mine was a tick above 80 proof, so I’d be interested in trying one of the higher proof bottles, but I’d also just as soon get the Dickel Bottled in Bond instead, which I find much more balanced.
