Review #1408 | Bourbon Review #

Distiller: Dickel

Bottler: Pursuit Spirits

Brand: Pursuit Spirits

Selection: N/A

ABV: 51.9% ABV

Age: 10 Years


Nose: Rich honey, toffee, honey roasted peanuts. Faint orange peel, some strawberry. Super fruity for a bourbon.

Taste: Medium mouthfeel, some heat but not much. Sweet toffee, vanilla bean, werthers caramels, orange peel and pepper.

Finish: Short to medium in length, but rich and complex. Orange, berry, pepper, toffee and sweet frosting. Lots going on here, none of it bad.

Overall: Delicious and interesting while complex. Big fan of this. Lots of berry, a little reserved on the minerality – bright, fun, fruity and complex. Yum.

Thanks for reading!
