    WTF!!!??? I mean...I LOVE George Dickel#12 and I thought their "finding" 23 year old barrels a few years ago was a little....well....on the gimmick side.

    Now they're aging and bottling their whisky in Tabasco Barrels.

    I LOVE Tabasco...
    I LOVE George Dickel #12...

    But aged together....I just don't know what to think.

    I'll probably buy two bottles...one to drink and one for display(if it doesn't sell).

    ***Is this a fad caused by the snowflake/millennials..causing shortages in beer, whiskey, and bourbon??!! Also causing distillers and brewers to create crazy a** products??!!**


    Cheers???

    A lot of the distilleries are experimenting with different barrel finishes trying to outdo each other it seems. Some of them have yielded amazing results but this one not so much.

    I have heard that it mostly taste like the Tabasco and strong on the vinegar.

    I actually prefer Louisiana myself, prolly cause I ate so much Tabasco that they put in our MRE’s in the Marine Corps. One thing; you dump enough Tabasco on anything you can pretty much eat it.

    My dad passed away with a bottle of tabasco on the nightstand so he could choke down the hospital food. I'm going to reserve judgement until I try some.

    After more research, it appears they don't recommend drinking it neat (imagine that) and it's meant to be used for bloody Marys.

    That might be a good combination.

    Yeah, I could see using it for that. It's not my favorite hot sauce but I know many people like it.
