George Dickel Rye
Distillery: George Dickel Distillery. Tullahoma, TN
Age: 12 YR
Nose: Dill, rye and spice dominate the nose which is typical amongst young MGP ryes. Orange candy, brulee and notes of grain, raw sugar and touches of fruit and caramel hang out in the background.
Palate: Dill, rye and a sharp spice again dominate but this time bring notes of citrus zest, caramel, vanilla and a box of warm baking spices with them. Light fruit and a touch of astringency float lightly over the palate and blend into the background.
Color: Orangish Caramel
Notes: It has a warm dill, spice and candy driven nose that translates well to the palate and through the finish that is pleasant enough and tasty enough to pour a glass now and then. It’s also utterly phenomenal for making cocktails (rye Manhattan… yes please).
