Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The whiskey shows off a rich, deep amber hue with golden highlights. The liquid's viscosity, observed through the legs that form upon swirling the glass, indicates a well-structured spirit.
On the nose, this collaboration rye bursts with complex aromas: herbal rye spiciness is intertwined with sweeter notes of caramel and vanilla, all lifted by a subtle oaky backdrop. The scent of dark fruits like blackberries and cherries rounds out the profile, making it invitingly multifaceted.
Upon the first sip, you are greeted with the classic spiciness of rye grain, but it is immediately softened by a buttery richness reminiscent of George Dickel's Tennessee style. Mid-palate, flavors of toasted almonds, cinnamon, and delicate floral notes contribute complexity. Leopold Bros.' influence becomes apparent with a slightly fruit-forward twist, enhancing the whiskey's overall profile.
The finish is long and luxurious, maintaining a perfect balance between the spicy rye and the sweet, fruitier notes. Subtle flavors of cocoa and leather emerge as the liquid warms your palate, leaving a lasting impression.
Medium to full-bodied, the rye whiskey has a velvety texture that complements its complex flavors, making it incredibly palatable and sippable.

Given its balanced profile, this whiskey pairs excellently with a variety of foods—consider enjoying it with a charcuterie board featuring both spicy and sweet elements, or perhaps with dark chocolate for a post-dinner indulgence.
Being a limited release, this whiskey is highly sought-after. We recommend picking up your bottle from Third Base Market & Spirits while supplies last.

Got a chance to taste this along with the unblended Leopold Bros 3 chamber still rye initial release and it was unanimous that we liked the Dickel/Leopold blend better. The Dickel rye is also unique as this is the first release using rye distilled and aged by Dickel. Previous Dickel ryes have been sourced. This is a very unique product and well worth trying.
Not an easy bottle to find, but had 2. Timely delivery over the holiday, well packed.
