Dickel Bottled in Bond Spring 2011 Heads to Shelves

George Dickel continues its well-received series with the launch of George Dickel Bottled in Bond Spring 2011, Aged 12 Years.

Bottled-in-bond is a historical designation meant to protect the integrity of aged spirits by ensuring each barrel is produced in a single distillation season by a single distillery. To meet the criteria, the spirit must also be matured in a U.S. bonded warehouse for at least four years and bottled at 50% ABV (100 proof).

Flavors of this new release include fruit and nut notes, the company reports, before a finish of roasted nuts. Like the previous series offerings, this vintage has been led by Nicole Austin, director of George Dickel and luxury whiskey.

“Something that makes this series so special is that whisky fans have the rare opportunity to try expertly crafted bottled in bond offerings at a great price,” says Austin. “If you’re a fan of the category, you know the designation requires the liquid to be from just one distillation season, among other regulations. Our bottled in bond offerings are a testament to the quality of our inventory and the commitment at Cascade Hollow to consistently produce outstanding whisky. I can’t wait for both old and new fans of the series to try it!”

Like the preceding George Dickel Bottled in Bond releases, this edition has a mash bill of 84% corn, 8% rye and 8% malted barley. It is chill charcoal mellowed, like the rest of the George Dickel portfolio of Tennessee whiskies.

Starting this May, consumers can find George Dickel Bottled in Bond Spring 2011, Aged 12 Years rolling out in stores near them for a suggested retail price of $44.99 per 750-ml. bottle.

This Follows the recent release of Dickel Bourbon Aged 18 Years.
