George Dickel Rye Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1122817 94 points Wine Enthusiast

 *Top 50 Spirits 2013 & Best Buy* Despite a mash bill of 95% rye and 5% malted barley, this golden-bright, small-batch rye is smooth and not as spicy as other rye whiskies. It has a surprising freshness, with bold vanilla, nut, fresh apple and white-flower aromas leaping out of the glass. While charred-oak flavors hit the palate first (it’s matured in charred oak barrels for at least five years), it finishes downright buttery, touched with ginger and maple sweetness.  (7/2013)

K&L Notes

Here we have the venerated Tennessee distillery, dipping its toes into the hot as coal rye whiskey market. Given they haven't actually distilled any Rye Whiskey, but they've sourced it from Lawrenceburg Distillers in Indiana. The whiskey is than subjected to George Dickel's special charcoal mellowing process, which is typically performed before ageing, but was adapted for this new product add softness to the typically heady savory spirit coming out of Indiana.

But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
