This Tennessee whiskey is distilled, mellowed and aged in Cascade Hollow, Tenn. The brand uses the traditional Scottish spelling of whisky (as opposed to whiskey) because Dickel believed his product to be as smooth as the best Scotch whiskies. The distillery is part of the American Whiskey Trail. Tours offered M-Sa 9 am-4:30 pm. Last tour at 3:30 pm. Tickets: free; extended tour including tasting $10.
