Dalmore Regalis

The nose has vanilla, spices and cherrywood (or at least what I imagine cherry wood would smell like which is basically cherries and wood).  The taste is nutty, with tobacco, raspberry, caramel and milk chocolate.  The finish is woody, spicy with some cigar smoke.  With water it gets sweeter with ripe banana, more caramel and more tobacco in finish.  Overall a very nice, 40% ABV, sherry finished travel retail expression from Dalmore.

    George Dickel Barrel Select

    This was perhaps my favorite find during our family trip to Tennesseee in March 2013.  Elegant and balanced it is a great advertisement for Tennessee whisky.  Yes that is correct, whisky with no "e".  That's the tradition in Cascade Hollow, home of George Dickel.  The nose has familiar hints of corn, fresh cut wood, paint and vanilla.  The taste is mellow and but complex, sharp citrus, hint of charcoal, cola and some sweet toffee and milk chocolate.  Delicious.  The finish has citrus, mint and gentle oak and flash of rye spice and cinnamon.  We drove over 1,300 miles on that trip.... this whisky alone was worth it.
