The new George Dickel Bottled in Bond Fall 2008, Aged 13 Years, according to those behind it, follows in the steps of previous bottled-in-bond iterations released by Cascade Hollow General Manager & Distiller Nicole Austin. Each year, Austin’s distilling process begins with a blind tasting, and this year, she was once again drawn to barrels from distilling season Fall 2008.
The latest bottling, it is said, “features a combination of lots that have matured for an additional two years, which offers whisky drinkers the best balance of bold complexity since first being considered in previous years.”
“Since its first inception,” said Austin in a prepared statement, “I’ve been proud to work on the George Dickel Bottled in Bond Series as it’s a lineup defined by credibility and transparency. While each new release has had their subtle differences, they’ve overall shared the same hallmark traits as well as consistently offered whisky drinkers a quality Bottled in Bond option at an approachable price point.
“Whether you’re a longstanding fan of the series or just now finding it, we hope that you’re able to enjoy this new offering from the George Dickel Bottled in Bond Series.”
Starting this month, consumers can find George Dickel Bottled in Bond Fall 2008, Aged 13 Years rolling out in stores near them for a suggested retail price of $44.99. Consistent with previous George Dickel Bottled in Bond releases, this edition has a mash bill of 84% corn, 8% rye, 8% malted barley. It is also chill charcoal mellowed like the rest of the George Dickel portfolio.
Bottled at 100 proof, limited official tasting notes make mention of “a profile that’s dominated by fruit and nut notes, with an inviting nose of bright fresh cherry, cedar and almond and structured oak finish.”
