George Dickel has recently announced that they will be releasing an unaged white whisky. Called The No. 1 Foundation Recipe, it is the same distillate that goes on to become George Dickel No. 8, No. 12 and Barrel Select. The difference? It’s not rested in barrels to mature. Aside from that, it will utilize the same grain bill, the same Cascade Spring water and the same filtering method using their signature Chill Charcoal Mellowing process.
According to the distillery, “George Dickel No. 1 is a 91-proof (45.5 % ABV) whisky with a clear appearance and initial aroma that is soft, yet full of raw grain. Those raw notes vanish upon a mellow and smooth first taste, with a creamy and sweet corn flavor. The Chill Charcoal Mellowing process gives the liquid a soft, smooth finish.”
Distributed nationwide beginning in Jan., George Dickel No. 1 will retail at a suggested price of $21.99 for a 750 mL bottle.
