This whiskey, as stated before, is bottled by Barrell at a cask strength of 61.45%. It is 8 years and 6 months old.
Overall - 8.5/10. The spice on this is amazing. It is a shame that Dickel doesn’t normally use the high rye mashbill that a lot of Barrell has used. This is an absolutely delicious whiskey. Spicy and fruity and peanut buttery and chock full of grains. Not a typical bourbon at all, but don’t go to Barrell or Dickel expecting that.
Lovely, beautiful, divisive Dickel. Peanut butter and fluff sandwiches made with whole wheat bread. Raspberries. Flintstones’ vitamins. Underripe lemon. Fresh shelled peanuts. I’ve missed this profile, I need to drink more Dickel / Barrell. Brie cheese with honey.
Thick spicy jam. That same sandwich. Tons of rye grain and corn. Almost sherried tasting with the fruits and berries and spice. Fresh raspberries and raspberry lemon preserves. Leather and wood polish. Very thick, great mouthfeel, and not overly hot.
Whoa. The most flavorful rye spice I think I’ve ever had. Fresh loaves of rye bread with fresh black pepper. A baker’s whiskey. Leather. Intense and beautiful. Raspberry jam on that rye bread. Long finish.
