If you have read some of my other reviews, you can pick up that I really like the product line from George Dickel. You may also note that I am a huge fan of ryes, be it straight, or in a cocktail. So you must expect that when George Dickel Rye became available in Michigan, I found myself pretty excited.
- Nose: spicy, cinnamon, a bit of mint and oak scents.
- Body: Not super sweet, pretty well balanced.
- Palette: A good amount of rye but a little too oaky
- Finish: A little rough but a nice aftertaste.
I wouldn’t recommend this spirit if your having a few guests over that love bourbon. This would be a nice mixer in a coke but as far as drinking straight, I personally would reach for something else.
