Last year, Tennessee whiskey outfit, George Dickel — of the Cascade Hollow Distilling Co. — released a $36, 13-year bottle of 50% ABV Bottled In Bond whiskey that won the coveted “Whisky Of The Year” award from Whisky Advocate. Now, following the immense success of last year’s release, the Tullahoma-based distillery has unveiled a similar offering with a new 11-year Bottled In Bond Tennessee Whiskey.
Originally bottled in 2008, this 100-proof (50% ABV) whiskey calls on a mash bill of 84% corn, 8% rye, and 8% malted barley, and is chill charcoal mellowed, ultimately resulting in a flavor profile that boasts notes of maple syrup, pecan, and dried apple, and a rich and warm oaky finish. Like last year’s award-winning George Dickel Bottled In Bond offering, the 2020 iteration also comes in at an exceedingly accessible price point of just $40, though these types of highly-celebrated and publicized spirits tend to sell out overnight and then reappear on the secondhand market at significantly hiked up prices. Currently, the company says this new 11-year Bottled In Bond whiskey will be available in select markets starting this month, though they have not yet cited a specific date or included regions.
