George Dickel whiskey is distinctive and surprisingly polarizing at the same time. Used as a sourced whiskey for way too many non-distiller producers at this point, you’ve probably had George Dickel even if you didn’t buy a bottle that features the name “George Dickel” on its label. Many cite the company’s whiskey as having a strong mineral and fruit vitamin flavor to it, but it's the whiskey’s cherry and overly fruity qualities that stand out the most. This makes it an easy drinker even in this budget-friendly form. As an under-$30 bottle, it's not overly complex, but is really only a few degrees less than some of Dickel’s more expensive offerings, which few brands can claim. With a nice mouthfeel, ample flavor, and great price, George Dickel Superior No. 12 Whiskey certainly packs in the value and can slot into anyone’s everyday whiskey.
