Whiskey Wednesday- George Dickey No. 12 Whisky
Can we get through another Wednesday? It’s the middle of the week, we need an extra kick, some booze. What about a little Whiskey on an Whiskey Wednesday? I’m already feeling better. Today’s spotlight is on the famous George Dickey No. 12 Whisky.
As you already know, there are many fine Tennessee whiskies, then there is George Dickel No. 12 Tennessee Whisky. With assertive flavors and an incredibly smooth finish, No. 12 combines older whiskies (selected by Master Distiller John Lunn) to create a richness that maintains Dickel’s signature smooth finish. The flavors include: rich oak and subtle vanilla. When mixed together they lead to a long finish with hints of maple, butter and smoke.
Since 2005, No. 12 has been awarded two Silver Medals, two Gold Medals and one Double Gold Medal in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Let’s get to the report card from Coedmagazine.com:
