George Dickel 9 Years Hand Selected Barrel Sour Mash Whisky
The George Dickel Hand Selected Barrel Whiskey is a 9-year-old expression of the brand's private barrel program. Double-distilled and charcoal mellowed, this Tennessee whiskey is bottled from a single cask following maturation. It's bottled at 51.5% ABV and packaged in its own box. It can come with a customizable, vintage-inspired decanter tag and each bottle is individually barrel numbered.
The nose has sweet vanilla, caramel, and corn. The palate has sweet corn, some caramel, and vanilla. On later sips, I also get some cola. The finish is a little burn and brings back some of the memorable corn and sweet notes of a medium length.
