    Pros: Taste and smoothness.
    Cons: No home delivery!

    Summary: I like whisky, (or whiskey), over ice. Whether Scotch, Bourbon or Tennessee sippin' brands. I am not crazy about the fact that George Dickel Old No. 12 is distilled in Tennessee and shipped north to be bottled, but I find the quality of the product to be ... read more

    Pros: SMOTH & WORLD CLASS
    Cons: NONE

    Summary: My favorite tipple when in the UK is Glenmorangie single malt scottish whisky. One of the best in the world.George Dickel no 12 with just a splash of water is equally as good. Difficult to find in stock in Florida, Virtually impossible to get in UK, ... read more

  • George Dickel No. 12. A superior Tennessee whisky. Only it's advertising makes Jack more popular.

    Pros: Very smooth with hints of vanilla, caramel, slightly smokey but sweet finish.
    Cons: Not easy to find. Ask your distributor if he doesn't have No.12 on the shelf.

    Summary: Being a long time bourbon affectionato I used to cringe at the thought of Tennessee "sour mash whiskey". Not so anymore. George Dickel No.12 displays many of the fine nuances of many of the finer and rarer bourbon whiskeys. Whether sipping it neet or ... read more

  • Number 8 is smoother

    Pros: Smooth, mellow, great taste. Enjoy it straight or mixed.
    Cons: None. Harder to find in my area that #12.

    Summary: Contrary to most of the ratings regarding Dickel number 8 Vs number 12, I find that Dickel number 8 is the smoother of the two. Number 12 is supposed to have a dry finish. I find it to be harsher than the mellow number 8. I don't mean weaker. Number 8 ... read more

    Pros: Smooth, sweet, powerful.
    Cons: A bit hard to find locally.

    Summary: At $20.95 this is not a value whiskey. It is a very good bottle of booze however. Highly recommended for American sour mash. I am enjoying a flagon as we speak. A 90 proof whiskey so asks for a slash of water on the rocks. A bit on the sweet side, it ... read more

    Pros: Dickel whiskey is consistently the best whiskey and should be a staple for whiskey drinkers.
    Cons: Sadly, it is not as readily available as some of the other inferior brands available.

    Summary: I was introduced to George Dickel during my first job out of college in 1975, working as a purchasing agent for a liquor distributor. I already had a taste for bourbon whiskey, but had never heard of Dickel until that time. It was, and still is, the ... read more

    Pros: Great taste, distinctive character, super price.
    Cons: None

    Summary: Compared with that other Tennessee whisky, GD #12 is head and shoulders above. The taste is really worth the effort. The cost is reasonable. I'm surprised that this whisky isn't more popular than it is. This whisky has a sweet apple pie like aroma. ... read more
