George Dickel Tennessee Sour Mash Whisky "Cascade Hollow Red Label"

I've been favoring Rye lately, even over the otherwise sacred Maker's Mark, and while I prefer Rittenhouse Rye, I find Old Overholt more than palatable. But last I tried to buy Old Overholt, the only Rye the store had was Jim Beam's Yellow Label, which, frankly, I'd rather not. They had a small display set up of George Dickel Tennessee Sour Mash Whisky "Cascade Hollow," and so we decided, for sixteen bucks, we'd try it. I note that elsewhere it's sold for around $10.00.
