90–95 pts.: 12/15/2002

Medium amber tint. Concentrated aromas of oak, ash and toasted grain are elegant yet profound; for me, it’s the prototypical Tennessee whisky bouquet. In the mouth, warm, roasted, ash- and tobacco-like flavors are scrumptious and intense. Oaky, grainy finish. The best bottling of George Dickel.

The delightful bouquet offers potent tobacco ash, paraffin, sweet oak and grain kernel. The palate entry has spirity warmth and tastes of cigarette tobacco, light honey and cereal grain; midpalate texture is creamy and deliciously sooty. Finishes buttery, spirity and clean.

This medium-amber bottling of Dickel bears a similar aroma to the No. 8 bottling, but some honey notes add to its complexity. The body is medium, and the palate also has more complexity than its younger brother — tobacco and leather comes into play along with the spiciness usually associated with Dickel’s Tennessee whiskeys. The finish is medium, pleasantly warm, and very sooty.

Amber, with a copper-orange cast. Medium-bodied. Citrus, dried herbs, honey. Round, bold texture. Fairly assertive in style, displaying a high degree of aromatics and lighter fruit notes. Good intensity in the finish.

A more brilliant medium amber/copper/bronze appearance that the No. 8, immaculate purity; the nose is noticeably deeper and more focused than the No. 8’s right from the first crack of the bat — concentrated aromas of oak, ash, and toasted grain come even more alive in the second and third passes — the final pass is all about genuine aromatic elegance as the disparate elements come together in a nose that’s almost chewy, so sinewy and firm is it — in my experience, the prototypical Tennessee whiskey aroma, one that combines vigor and finesse; in the mouth, the warm, roasted, ash like, tobacco-like flavors are a joy to behold…
