    George Dickel No.12 Tennessee Whiskey (750ml)

    Tennessee, UNITED STATES
    $64. 99 Bottle
    $779.88 Dozen
    ABV: 45%
    Tasting note: Copper gold colour. Toasted marshmallow and spicy oak aromas develop with lifted pepper notes. There's more honey and cocoa than the number 8, both on the nose and the palate, which is also plusher, fuller and rounder with flavours of candied peach, cocoa and nicely balanced sweet oak turning lightly smokey at the finish. Full flavoured, easy drinking Tennessee that's priced right. 45% Alc./Vol.

    Other reviews...The most brooding of the three. Not as polished as the Barrel Select, but certainly very entertaining. Shows more depth that the No. 8, with more dry oak intensity and more heft. Notes of dried spices, dark chocolate, cocoa, and charcoal balance the citrus, currant, caramel, and vanilla. A very good sipping whisky. 89 points John Hansell - www.maltadvocate.com

    ...A different story told by George from the last one I heard. But certainly no less fascinating. 90.5 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2014
