I like George Dickel #12 a lot. Beats the hell out of JD for me. I'm not sure if I've seen this bottling before, but if I do, I guess I'll just have to grab 1 or 2. How does this compare to the 12?
It is a bit softer, more subtle, richer, and more complex than the #12. I just did a side by side and that is my opinion. I whipped out all my Tennesse whiskies and here is my rating
(1) George Dickel Barrel Select
(2) Jack Daniel's 1954 Gold Medal
(3) George Dickel #12
(4) Jack Daniel's Single Barrel
I am convinced that the JD Single Barrel I have is not a good example of that whiskey.......it has a tarry finish that does not suit my palate!
