History – “Born 40 years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, George A. Dickel was an established Nashville merchant when he entered the whisky business. Dickel grew his reputation for selling the smoothest, most mellow spirits in the region. George Dickel preferred whisky made in the winter months more than summer months because he felt it made the whisky taste smoother, so the company began advertising their Geo. A. Dickel’s Cascade Tennessee Whisky as “Mellow as Moonlight.” –

Value – For the price, this is a wise purchase. I do suggest it.

Appearance – This bottle features a long neck leading into a medium body. The label has a unique looks and feels as well, which is nice. My favorite feature is that, unlike most bottles, the label includes the serving information.

Nose – Citrus and spice have the stronghold on the nose. Just like the Redemption Rye, it is also 95% rye. However, this one produces more heat.

Palate – This traditional rye has a high spice level. The chilled charcoal mellowed, bringing caramel and honey to the table. A well-rounded palate, I do say.

Finish – The finish entails a rye spice afterburn that is like a well-represented mullet, “Classy” in the front, “all party” in the back. The burn hits quickly and lasts for just the right amount of time. Caramel, honey, and/or vanilla are left for that nice, soothing feeling.

Summary – In summary, George Dickel has created a high-quality rye whiskey. This has established their name in the Rye world. Their statement is true. “Smooth Sippin”—George Dickel

I enjoy George Dickel’s items, so doing this review piqued my interest. It has also received several notable accolades. If you’re new to Rye, this would be a good starting point, in my opinion.
