Whisky reviews for George Dickel No. 8

4 users have left 4 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 78.08 points.

  1. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Well, so it's really a 20-30, - Bourbon is more for mixing, very soft, does his job, should have 46%, point (anyway preferable to any Bulleit and Maker's Mark beginner)
    • Nose
      Typical Sour Mash notes, acidic, such as fresh sourdough, citrus notes, hazelnut, caramel, honey, maple syrup, corn grain
    • Taste
      Sourdough still, very gentle due to the low%, corn grain without being too sweet, vanilla, lemon, maple syrup (but dissolved in water), bread crust, still very soft, caramel sweet
    • Finish
      Dry-floury, sour mash and corn remain, not so delicious finish, at the very end comes a little Werther's original

    Nose: Flintstone Vitamins. Would have Said “tart fruits” before reading reviews if GD 13 Yr BIB but now I can‘t unsmell them.

    Palate: both sweet and tart fruit, a little metallic, orange at the end.

    Finish: Fruity
