George Dickel's new rye a bargain price

George Dickel turns out a very nice Tennessee whiskey. But, like a growing number of distillers, it's putting the spotlight on a new rye.

George Dickel Rye is a straight rye whisky matured in new charred oak barrels for at least five years. The mash bill is 95% Indiana rye and 5% malted barley. It is bottled at 90 proof (45% abv).

Besides the Dickel reputation, another drawing card is the suggested retail price: $25 for the 750ml bottle.

Do you know if it goes through the Lincoln County Process like its other whiskeys?

Yes. The new Dickel rye is distilled and aged in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, then shipped to Plainfield, Illinois, where it is chilled and filtered through maple charcoal (the Lincoln County Process) prepared at the Dickel facility in Tullahoma, Tennessee.
