There are many fine Tennessee whiskies. Then there is George Dickel No. 12 Tennessee Whisky. Displaying enormous depth, range and personality, it is considered by many to be the gold standard of Tennessee whisky.
With deeper, more assertive flavors and an incredibly smooth finish, No. 12, a classic 90 proof Dickel whisky, combines older whiskies selected by Master Distiller John Lunn to create a richness that maintains Dickel's signature smooth finish.
Concentrated flavors of rich oak and subtle vanilla lead to a long finish with hints of maple, butter and smoke. Quality like this doesn't go unnoticed: No. 12 has won high critical acclaim for years. Since 2005, No. 12 has been awarded two Silver Medals, two Gold Medals and one Double Gold Medal in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

"The delightful bouquet offers potent tobacco ash, paraffin, sweet oak and grain kernel. The palate entry has spirity warmth and tastes of cigarette tobacco, light honey and cereal grain; midpalate texture is creamy and deliciously sooty. Finishes buttery, spirity and clean."
