Last year, George Dickel entered the Bottled in Bond category by launching the brand’s Fall 2005 whisky, which racked up awards and positive reviews. Now a year later, the company has announced the next iteration of George Dickel’s Bottled in Bond Tennessee Whisky.
This 11-year-old whisky was bottled in Fall 2008. George Dickel Bottled in Bond has notes of pecan, maple syrup and dried apple, the company reports. It is 100 proof.
“Bottled in Bond whiskies have always been one of my favorite categories because you know exactly what you’re getting when you pick up a bottle,” says General Manager and Distiller, Nicole Austin. “Our team continues to make great whisky that’s reflective of the values we feel are most important, and I’m proud to share this year’s vintage of George Dickel Bottled in Bond with everyone. Like last year’s release, this bottling is a bold, complex spirit that shares the classic nutty, fruity and waxy characteristics that are expected from mature George Dickel whiskies.”
George Dickel Bottled in Bond has a mash bill of 84% corn, 8% rye and 8% malted barley. It is chill charcoal mellowed like the rest of the George Dickel Tennessee Whisky portfolio.
Beginning this month, the new George Dickel Bottled in Bond will be available in select markets across the nation for a suggested retail price of $39.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
