This stuff smells exactly as you would expect. It's got all those mineral and lumber notes that are typical in Dickel along with some extra wood. The palate starts in with chocolate, then gets some of those mineral notes, some nice wood and a touch of maple syrup at the end. The finish is probably the weakest part of the tasting; it's a bit hot with oak and a vague mineral note along with some citrus.
This is exactly what I've been waiting for, a high proof, more aged Dickel that hits all the right notes.
