Distillery Notes

A handcrafted, small-batch bourbon that's been aged 8 years and blended to perfection. The liquid boasts sweet initial notes of vanilla leading into bright hints of cherry and orange before being balanced by almond toffee and oak. At 90 proof, bourbon enthusiasts can best enjoy Dickel Bourbon neat or on the rocks, in addition to mixing it into some of their favorite cocktails, like an Old Fashioned.

MASH BILL: 84% corn, 8% rye, 8% malted barley

PROOF: 90 (45% ABV)

Tasting Notes

Nose: Sweet nuttiness, peanut butter, creamy toffee, fresh vanilla bean with roasted coffee bean and sweet tobacco

Palate: Caramel corn, almond butter, rye spice, black pepper, red chile flakes, caramel candies, oak char

Finish: Balanced and complex, lingers pleasantly

Awards/Reviews:

92 Points - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2022

"All kinds of stone fruit burst from the glass- peaches, cherries, apricots, all interwoven with rich baking spice. The flavors are crisp and equally clean, showing toasted corn, creamy caramel, butter crackers, and brown sugar and cinnamon kissed nectarines. Tasty."

93 Points, Rank #5 - Whisky Advocate Top 20 Of 2021
"Nicole Austin hasn’t rested on her laurels since George Dickel Bottled in Bond won Whisky of the Year in 2019, continuing to create great and affordable whiskeys at Cascade Hollow Distillery. This is notably a bourbon rather than a Tennessee whiskey, though the criteria for the two styles mostly overlap. The nose is nutty and well spiced, with caramel corn, toasted pecans, cinnamon graham crackers, cherry tart, and butterscotch candies. There is a friendliness to the palate that makes it ideal for outdoor imbibing, with notes of spearmint, mixed berries, nougat, and honey. Big spice on the finish makes this a memorable sip." —Ted Simmons

"A thoughtfully blended sipper that, with or without ice, is an excellent addition to the bourbon line up. I Definitely preferred it with ice, but either way there is a lot to talk about and enjoy in this glass. Also, with a reasonable price point and strong flavor profile, utilizing this in an Old Fashioned is not only recommended, but will satisfy most, if not all, connoisseurs of bourbon."
