George Dickel has announced the release of Bottled in Bond (Fall 2008). Last year, the company found success in the Bottled in Bond category with the launch of their Fall 2005 whisky, which won the “Whisky of the Year” award from Whisky Advocate and was the top-rated American Whiskey of 2019 by Wine Enthusiast. It seems that the Tennessee Whisky brand isn’t interested in wasting anytime in establishing themselves as one of the top spirits makers on the market.
From what we understand from the whisky makers, George Dickel Bottled in Bond (Fall 2008) is bold and balanced. The 11-year-old whisky was bottled in–surprise, surprise–Fall 2008 and offers notes of pecan, maple syrup, and dried apple. It comes in at 100 proof (50% ABV) making it great for sipping if you want a little heat or an excellent addition to classic cocktails such as an Old Fashioned or a Manhattan.
The Tennessee Whisky 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 portfolio, giving it the brand’s traditional smooth and creamy mouthfeel.
“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,” said 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 (Fall 2008) is currently available for $39.99 in markets across the United States both in stores and online.
