George Dickel "K&L Exclusive" 9 Year Old Single Barrel #L8040K1007 Tennessee Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1355501

When you talk to passionate bourbon drinkers today, most of them are looking for the rich, sweet, boldly flavored, high-proof editions that seem to have completely evaporated from today's market. Part of the reason the Van Winkle expressions (and the Weller bourbons by default) became so beloved, besides the pull of pop culture, has to do with their sweeter profile due to the lack of rye grain in the mash bill as a balance. While not technically categorized as bourbon (Dickel goes by Tennessee whiskey even though it qualifies as such), the distillery's high corn, low rye mash of 84% corn, 8% rye and 8% malted barley results in a whiskey brimming with sweetness, with less of the peppery and herbaceous elements. The only thing that's ever kept Dickel from becoming the next big thing in the American whiskey scene is the low proof, but that's where the company's single barrel program comes in: each K&L selected single cask of Dickel comes with a 9-year age statement and 51.5% ABV, dialing up the sweetness and sending serious bourbon fans into a frenzy. Barrel K1007 is bold and spicy on the nose but big, sweet, and woody on the palate. This Tennessee Whiskey has the smooth finish you'd expect from its more famous cousin.

I've always been a fan of our single cask American whiskies and the Dickel is no exception. I've amassed quite a few over the years. I tend to just enjoy them so I don't often do a lot of spirits reviews. When I do, it's because something really stood out for me. This cask had such a beautiful nose of toasted spices and vanilla but it was the hint of peach cobbler on the finish that hooked me. Expressive, smooth on the palate (even at cask strength), this is long on finish. Another great K&L cask selection for my own collection.

What a great offering coming out of Tennessee from Dickel. There are definite sweet, rich, candied banana notes, but they seem to float over the palate, not overwhelm. Kudos to the Spirits buyer for getting us such a great single barrel selection from such a standout distillery!

I always enjoy these hand selected small batches we bring in! You are not going to find quality Whiskey like this everyday. George Dickel is very much a palate pleaser. Vanilla, baking spices and cocoa powder on the nose. Salted caramel, dried thyme, and cinnamon linger on the palate.

If you've loved the previous Dickel selections we've bottled, this is a worthy follow up. It's big, bold, and spicy but with the classically smooth finish you want from Dickel. That spice is like you've mixed cinnamon and clove together with fresh saw dust. It's beautiful and full and the perfect playmate for many different cocktails, especially those with a sweet vermouth.

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. 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.
