This sounds like a quality bourbon, I’d love to try it. Another canidate for the list!
My wife knows the way to my heart. This past Valentine’s Day my wife Carly bought me a bottle of 14 year old George Dickel Tennessee Whisky. It is a hand-selected barrel from Dorignac’s, a local New Orleans-area grocery store. I really enjoyed the 9 year old George Dickel I received as part of the Dickel Dozen blogger program, so my expectations for the 14 year old Dickel were pretty high.
On the nose I get lots of oak, light caramel, and vanilla. There’s a little baking spice in there… cloves or nutmeg, maybe? I love that the distillery kept this at 106 proof. You get some of that high-proof liveliness on entry, but calms down a little with more caramel, oak, and vanilla. It’s not as sweet as its younger brother. The finish is long and semi-sweet.
Overall this whiskey is an oakier version of its 9 year old…
