George Dickel Rye Whisky


George Dickel Rye is a straight rye small-batch whisky, offering a 95% rye mash whiskey.  In order to provide consumers with the smoothest finish, George Dickel Rye is finished in its signature fashion – chill charcoal mellowing.  This stems from George Dickel’s belief that whisky was smoother in the cold winters than in the hot summers.
