About George Dickel 9 Year Old Hand Selected Barrel (Caskers Staff Pick)
Forty years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, George A. Dickel was born in a rural town in eastern Tennessee. By 1867, Dickel was an established Nashville merchant but moved his family to the city of Tullahoma (situated in south-central Tennessee), where he purchased the Cascade Hollow Distillery. After working tirelessly at the distillery, Dickel declared that his spirits were of equal quality to the finest scotch, and followed in the Scottish tradition of spelling whisky without an "e".
While George A. Dickel Distillery was forced to close its doors as a result of Prohibition, it was rebuilt in 1958 by Master Distiller Ralph Dupps. To ensure the whisky's authenticity, Dupps obtained the original manuscripts in which Dickel detailed his unique recipe and distillation processes. Today, Master Blender and distiller Nicole Austin carries on the tradition of excellence that has made Dickel whisky a symbol of quality for over a century.
George Dickel 9 Year Old Hand Selected Barrel (Caskers Staff Pick) has them carefully select single barrels of their handcrafted Tennessee whisky. Crafted with a mash bill of 84% corn, 8% rye, and 8% malted barley, the whisky omits its "e" due to the second distillation which uses a Scottish-style pot still. It has spent 9 years in a #4 char oak barrel with a #2 char head before being filtered using the Lincoln County Process. This expression was bottled at 103 proof.
