George Dickel & Leopold Bros Collaboration Blend Rye Whiskey
George Dickel has teamed up with Leopold Bros to produce an innovative rye whisky offering. The release blends George Dickel’s column still rye produced at Cascade Hollow Distillery with Leopold Bros’ Three Chamber Rye to recreate a historic style. This union between column distilled rye and Three Chamber distilled rye turns back the hands of time, returning to an era that saw heavy-bodied rye whisky served at bars and saloons throughout America. The Cascade Hollow component of this blend is a never-before released traditional column still rye.
The nose shows floral elements up front, especially rose and elderflower, with toffee, maple syrup, and milk chocolate behind. The palate opens with rosewater, brambly blackberries, and more toffee. After this, earl grey tea with honey comes through, closing it out on a cosy and gentle note. Bottled at 50% abv.
