George Dickel Bottled in Bond 11-Year

Distilled in the Fall of 2008 and aged for 11 glorious years this whiskey has found a home on many bourbon hunters shelves thanks to a very highly rated review in Whiskey Advocate. Bottle in Bond corresponds to the US Standards laid out in the Bottle-in-Bond Act of 1897. It ensures that the whiskey has been aged and bottled according to a set of legal regulations.

What does this all means: the whiskey must be the product of one distillation by one distiller at one Distillery. It must be aged 4+ years and needs to be 50% abv.

Tasting Notes

Nose: chocolate, cherry, corn and wood

Palate: vanilla, oak, caramel, chocolate and cinnamon 

Finish: oak and vanilla in the tail end 

Cost: $40

This is Dickel’s Second Bottle in Bond release. This is however aged 11 years as opposed to last years release which was aged 13 years.

I think this whiskey is fantastic. It’s slightly sweet with wonderful notes of chocolate, vanilla and caramel. It’s a smooth dram with a slight bite and is very easy to drink. 

For $40 this is an amazing buy. I think the affordability on a delicious quality whiskey is hard to beat. I recommend trying.
