Review #1429 | Bourbon Review #624

Distiller: Dickel

Bottler: Pursuit Spirits

Brand: Pursuit Spirits

Selection: N/A

ABV: 49.35% ABV

Age: 10 Years

Nose: Bright orange peel, cocoa, fudge and brisk pepper. Tons of cream.

Taste: Medium mouth feel, some heat. A bit more tannic on the palate – though nice oak structure. Spicy pepper, orange peel and faint tobacco. Dickel minerality is mild, fruits are orange and raspberry. (only one man gives me the raspberry…..looooonestar)

Finish: Short to medium but pleasant and bright. Lots of fruit, cocoa and a nice oak body to carry us out.

Overall: This is pretty nice. While not as rich as previous episodes, this demonstrates quality in its own way.

Thanks for reading!
