Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Beautiful amber hue. A delicate and floral nose along with hints of shortbread, vanilla, toasted coconut and almond butter. Honey comes into play on the palate and brings with it sour cherry, orange peel and a subtle hint of ripe plum. The orange peel extends delicately into the elegant finish. (Mar 2013)
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points - Bright amber/honey color. Truckloads of caramel corn, hazelnut, waxpaper and toffee aromas delight; a tantalizing bouquet. Flavor-wise, the entry shows a trace of pipe tobacco while the midpalate tastes feature buttered popcorn, bacon fat and peanut butter (Mar 2012)
At George Dickel Whisky, we’ve always been true to our name. The same can be said of our newest whisky, George Dickel Barrel Select. Each year, at peak periods of maturation, Master Distiller John Lunn selects approximately 10 barrels of his best, most mellow whisky to produce an exceptionally fine small-batch Tennessee whisky.
Aged between 10–12 years, this 86-proof gem provides a consistently smooth taste, perfect balance, rich amber color and a hint of vanilla. Aided by charcoal mellowing and the slow aging process, these distinct characteristics create a super-premium whisky in a class of its own.
Designed to commemorate the re-opening of the distillery in September 2003, this handcrafted bottle reflects beautiful craftsmanship, from its elegant shape and cork to the unique label design. It’s outstanding quality has been honored five times since 2006 by the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, including one Bronze Medal, One Silver Medal and two Gold Medals for Tennessee Whisky.
