No. 8 Tennessee Whisky 750ml
Fully matured and very civilized. Good enough to drink neat, yet inexpensive enough to use as a mixer. George Dickel Tennessee whiskies are made with a mash bill (whose proportions are secret) of barley, rye, and corn. Blended down with limestone water from Cascade Hollow, the whiskey is "mellowed" through sugar maple charcoal, double distilled, and then aged in oak. One of their signature processes is to chill-filter the spirit before the charcoal mellowing, which they say creates a special smoothness to their whisky. Note that the distillery has opted to spell whisky without the "e" in defiance of American whiskey tradition (and we'll follow suit here).

About the brand
The Man and His WhiskyBorn 40 years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, George A. Dickel was an established Nashville merchant when he entered the whisky business. Dickel grew his reputation for selling the smoothest, most mellow spirits in the region. Thus, Geo. A. Dickel & Co. was born and when the Cascade Hollow Distillery opened in 1878 in neighboring Coffee County, George Dickel bought a large share. George Dickel followed in the Scottish tradition of spelling whisky without an “e.”George Dickel preferred whisky made in the winter months more than summer months because he felt it made the whisky taste smoother, so the company began advertising their Geo. A. Dickel’s Cascade Tennessee Whisky as “Mellow as Moonlight.” This is why our whisky is chilled before undergoing the charcoal-mellow filtration known as the Lincoln County Process. This extra step smooths out the flavor and we’re still the only Tennessee distillery to do it. By 1904, under the leadership of Augusta Dickel and business partner Victor Schwab, the distillery had prospered. Although Prohibition became federal law in 1919, it was enacted in Tennessee nine years earlier. The distillery was closed, but the then-named Cascade Whisky was allowed to be sold as a medicinal spirit through leased equipment at the Stitzel-Weller distillery in Kentucky.Twenty-five years after the Repeal of Prohibition, in 1958, a new distillery was opened down the road from the original Cascade Hollow Distillery and it began producing whisky known as Geo. A. Dickel Tennessee Whisky. In 1964, the whisky was bottled and released as Dickel Black Label Old No. 8 and Dickel Tan Label Superior No. 12. Today, our Distiller carries on the tradition of excellence that has made our brand a symbol of quality for over 130 years.

Excellent, very smooth and tasty, better than many very expensive Bourbons I've tried. Very happy with Frootbat service, price, and delivery.

So when you go over a rack with handle rivulet as the most costly bourbon/whiskey on the best in class I picked a known brand I havent attempted at this point. The standard George Dickel. A staple of some bourbon consumers I selected an attempt at $20 without the dread of overspending on something new to me. A delicate warm nose with a strike of oak and potentially cinnamon. The sense of taste is perfect and smooth with the oak coming through without actually any flavor. The completion is deferred however present with a slight consume and again cinnamon or a trace of vanilla. I would state a staple of the business yet light on intricacy. Effectively a go to for the amateur bourbon man of his word. 3.6/5

I'd preferably go to China and lick door handles.

One of those guidelines you savored the 1970s can even now securely request in any bar. Smooth and sweet corn caramel with oak vanilla and somewhat of a hot peppery rye nibble. Snappy ethanol blaze and finish.

Tasting Notes
Nose
Green apples, honey, cinnamon, caramel and corn dance out of the glass. Light notes of orchard fruit, sawdust, char and an almost herbal spice make an appearance but don’t make a fuss. It’s a clean crisp nose that has a decent amount of depth to it and I’m enjoying it quite a bit.
Taste
More honey, apples and corn along with some apricots and a bit of rye like spice keeping them company. Appearing in fits and spurts are notes of caramel, wood and a deeper pine/mint hybrid that is rather intriguing.
Finish
Medium with notes of caramel, honey, spice and a touch of wood and mint.
