George Dickel Barrel Select

George Dickel Barrel Select

Official bottling
Single bourbon - Tennessee
Amber, tinge of green
43% ABV 

Nose: Vanilla, oak, bananas, cardamom, icing sugar, hints of leather, hints of brown paper. 
Mouthfeel: Light body, oily, loose, watery. 
Tasting: Sweet. Vanilla, oak, bananas, cardamom, pears, hints of leather. 
Finish: Long. Raisins, pears, cardamom. 


A bourbon (sorry, Tennessee whiskey) not dominated by bananas, cardboard or brown paper. Really complex, I think this must be older than most bourbons - 12 years and up perhaps? Spicy and tangy. Very nice indeed. To think that this isn't the small batch, named barrel version.


I like this a lot.
