Calling Uncle Bob - Tennessee Whiskey & Bourbon Questions

Here is my dilemma.I seem to have acquired a taste for Tennesee whiskey. I will try to work up to Bourbon, I promise, For the moment, it has a bit more bite thatn I can enjoy. Maybe I am trying the worong brand.

Anyway, I have heard that you are enamoreed of George Dickel #12. I do not find it aroung here. I am currently enjoying a bottle of JD Single Barrel.I would like to try the Dickel.

Can Whickey be ordered vore the net? Or do you know a way to fing out if anyone in North Jersey stockes it.

TIA

AC

Adillo303 ------ Wines & Spirits can be ordered over the net -- However it all depends on your State's Laws --- Here in Mississippi I cannot ordered it due to it being a State Controlled Beverage --- Some bull about Taxes etc. So check your local law. Binny's in Chicago has a nice selection of Wines & Spirits, and they ship I believe.

Go to your local supplier, and ask if it is available!

George Dickel 12 and George Dickel Barrel Select are my go to Tennessee Whiskeys ....I have some JD Single Barrel, but it doesn't work well on my palate!

HTH

Uncle Bob - Thank You

Mav - Well, Yup! I had tow servers today, different locations that both decided to throw fits that I have not seen in 45 years of computer tech service. then one of them had the audacity to "fix" itself. You know that one will be back at an inopportune time. Yup! about a shot over ice.

Adillo,

I see that you are in Haledon, which, if memory serves me, is in the Paterson/Cliifton area. I am in the hinterland of NW NJ, and have no problem finding George Dickels--you have a lot more possibilities in your area. Just find a liquor store that carries more than the basics. As for JD, it is my fall-back drink in taverns where inquiring about finer whiskeys may provoke the hairy eyeball. Jack and Ginger is fairly universal, if mediocre. If you want a nice segue into the world of bourbon, I suggest Woodford Reserve. I have converted a number of friends from a dislike for bourbon to bourbon regulars by introducing them to Woodford. Have fun!

I second the motion. Go for Woodford. But, then, I would recommend it because it's a Kentucky product. However, that not withstanding, it's really, really tasty.

Absolutely, Katie! Back when Woodford started back up and before JD took over the distribution, it was only available in four states. A friend in Tennessee sent up a bottle to another friend in PA, which started a secondary part of a trip to a graduation that included a veritable odyssey of seeking ending up in Versailles and a peek at the Woodford works. Someday, if DC allows that long of a post, I'll tell the tale. Suffice it to say, I've had many a Woodford on someone else for telling the story!

I hope you can find it in Jersey! you have a way better liquor selection than we do here in the Peoples Republic... ahem.. Commenwealth of Pennsylvania... where we have to smuggle alcohol across the border if we want something other than the state chooses to buy.
