    George Dickel Rye

    I learned a little about this when I visited the distillery in March 2013. The whisky is actually made in Indiana then transported to Dickel where it goes through the famous Lincoln County filtration process before aging onsite. The nose was described in one review I read as “tangy” but I didn’t get that. In fact I didn’t get a lot, perhaps some spiciness but for me it appears the filtration process reduced nose from what I have come to expect for rye. The taste is very smooth and has that sooty note I find in Dickel. Also some creamy toffee sweetness and the spice from the nose along with mint. The finish gets hot and even mintier.  Compared to the rather subdued nose the taste and finish were a riot.
