The award-winning Dickel Bourbon was first released to provide a home to the mature whiskies at the distillery that leaned more into traditional bourbon notes. Now, Director of George Dickel & Luxury Whiskey, Nicole Austin, is showcasing more of this whisky with the release of George Dickel 18 Year Old, which has been described as a refined blend perfect for bourbon lovers.
George Dickel 18 Year Old, is said to be mellow yet complex,
delivering flavours including deep notes of crème brulée and stone fruit.
Commenting on the launch, Nicole Austin, said: "We
created Dickel Bourbon to give people an approachable and balanced bourbon that
is high-quality and complex in flavour. I loved the idea of building upon that
craftsmanship of our mature whisky and creating something with that same
traditional feel, and also more premium. I'm excited for people to try Dickel
Bourbon Aged 18 Years because it's a rare and beautifully aged whisky, but
still exhibits a surprising brightness and wide range of complexity that is not
often found in American Whiskies of this age."
Limited in quantities, George Dickel 18 Year Old will be available
later this month in select markets across the US, for a RRP of $510.00.
