From across the pond comes this 8-year-old Tennessee whisky from George Dickel Distillery, bottled by Heroes & Heretics independent bottlers exclusively for The Whisky Shop. This expression was distilled in October 2011, spending eight years in American oak before being bottled in August 2020 at 51.0% abv without chill filtration or added caramel colouring. Highly limited, just 251 bottles were produced.
Aromas of mint toffee, tinned peaches and foam banana sweets fill the nose. This whisky is silky smooth on the palate initially, then rises to a warming spice, some iodine with smoke and menthol, and then allows for some cereal notes to shine, alongside popcorn, pecan and sweet syrup. It dries nicely deliciously on the finish with charcoal ash, earl great tea and wood spice.
