Very nice smooth. Roger — 3 days ago
Amazing. It has a shy beginning. The nose promises a lot. There is some vanilla sweetness with ripe cherry and raspberry. But then comes the palate where all of it strikes you with some pepper, strong. But the finish is calm. It's really fantastic wine. I love it for its elegance connected with boldness. The wine made for James Bond. :) — 3 months ago

Great for the price, Whiskey Advocate # 1 this year for what its worth, heres the review they stated, the start of 2019, a Tennessee whiskey would have been considered a long shot to be named Whisky Advocate’s Whisky of the Year, but this Dickel came barreling from behind with the poise and power to impress our blind tasting panel. Its value is unmatched—serving up a full 13 years of barrel age at 50% ABV for just $36. Such bargains result because Tennessee whiskey lives in the shadow of bourbon, which can easily command three or four times the price at this age. Following Tennessee’s practice of charcoal-filtering the distillate before aging, this whiskey is soft around the edges yet delivers plenty of intensity. The mouthwatering peanut aromas evoke memories of cracking open a school lunchbox while the palate delivers abundant fruit: orange marmalade and caramel apple. Fine bitter-sweet balance suggests burnt sugar, Mexican chocolate, chocolate-covered almonds, and toffee. Indeed, sweet nuts, like French burnt peanuts, candied pralines, and marron glacé, seem to be the common thread here, lending this a consistent chord from initial nose through the drying, pleasantly spiced finish.

Ovid- 2012- reminds me of a bond. Smell. Very floral. Great complexity, nice mouth feel. Very well balanced. A little bit of a dark fruit but not a lot. — a month ago
