Mashbill: 84% corn, 8% rye, 8% barley

Chill Filtered: Hickory wood filtered
Drank: Neat, in a Glencairn
Nose: Caramel, mineral water, oak, buttermilk biscuits, vanilla, Maple hickory and rye spice

Taste: Oak, spices, wood-smoke, chocolate, orange bitters, minerals (Iron like), with a touch of sweet caramel.
Finish: Medium length and warmth, smokey with the hickory remaining present. Toasted biscuits, oak, peanut butter, and vanilla bean.
Thoughts: Certainly has the Dickel vitamin taste, but I enjoyed the smokey notes from this one. If you can get it on sale around $60 Id recommend it, but at $80 Barrell offers better sourced Dickel.
