Wine Enthusiast 89 points - Despite a mild aroma, this whiskey offers bold caramel, vanilla and maple on the palate, with soft, creamy mouthfeel. Water opens up the aroma a little, disclosing a bit more vanilla. Sip or mix. - K.N. (Jul 2015)
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - (UB Collection,Chairman’s Trophy,Great Value,Tried & True Award)- Opening with fresh fig, honeysuckle, and very intriguing allusions to fresh sourdough bread. Round and elegant, with morel cherry, vanilla, and barrel spice. Baking spices line the finish, which is delicate and long. (Mar 2015)

Medium-bodied. Reminiscent of citrus, dried herbs, honey. Round, bold texture. Fairly assertive in style, displaying aromatics and lighter fruit notes. Good intensity in the finish. Produced at the George Dickel Cascade Distillery in Tullahoma, Tennessee, the acclaimed George Dickel No. 12 is distilled from corn, barley and rye and limestone water from the Cascade Springs. The 90-proof whisky is aged for 10 years and chilled prior to mellowing in charcoal.
