Last week I received my bottle of 9 year bottle of George Dickel as part of my membership in the Dickel Dozen. It came in a great looking wooden presentation box. Great first impression. Thankfully, the whisky inside the bottle was outstanding. It was made by Jimmy DiResta, who’s appeared on a number of shows including A&E’s Dirty Money, as well as various HGTV and DIY Network shows. Now, you can see how the really cool looking box was made. Watching this video took my appreciation to a whole new level.
The folks at George Dickel reached out to me asking if I wanted to participate in a new blogger program called the Dickel Dozen. The Dickel Dozen? The first image that comes to mind is the film “The Dirty Dozen.” Anyway, about the program: George Dickel National Ambassador Doug Kragel selects a barrel of George Dickel Tennessee Whisky. That barrel gets bottled and 12 bloggers (the aforementioned Dickel Dozen) get sent a bottle for review. That sounded good to me, so I signed up. I’ve written about George Dickel No. 8, George Dickel No. 12, and George Dickel Barrel Select here before. Their No 8 was okay, but I really enjoyed their Dickel No. 12 and Barrel Select. This program will give me a chance to try a single barrel of George Dickel. I should have a bottle sent to me soon, and I’ll post about when I receive it. In the meantime, check out this video they created and personalized just for us here at AdventuresInWhiskey.com.
