Review #1432 | Bourbon Review #625

Distiller: Dickel

Bottler: Pursuit Spirits

Brand: Pursuit Spirits

Selection: N/A

ABV: 56.75% ABV

Age: 14 Years

Nose: Spicy, oaky and powerful. Brown sugar, blueberry pop tart (strangely enough), toffee and vanilla bean ice cream.

Taste: Thick and rich, loads of toffee, oak, apple pie and oak. Tobacco is there along with bold oak structure and a dry tannic back palate.

Finish: Long but tannic and dry. Perhaps a bit more tannic than I’d like but the cocoa, toffee and sweet cream notes balance alright.

Overall: Not my favorite of the Pursuit Series, but lovers of dry oaky releases will be all in on this episode.

Thanks for reading!
