Distiller: Finger Lakes Distillery
Bottler: Pursuit Spirits
Brand: Pursuit Spirits
Selection: Pursuit Spirits
ABV: 51.8% ABV
Age: 4 Years
Nose: Pungent and musty, almost like a well aged armagnac. Blackberry, toffee, nice oak. Creamy sweetness, pipe tobacco.
Taste: Sweet grape, apple, black currant and tannic oak. Medium mouth feel, some heat. Really dry and oaky on the back palate, very congruent with a brandy, once again.
Finish: Long, but a bit hot. Coffee, toffee, oak, grape and musty pipe tobacco.
Overall: Really interesting and delicious. This was revealed to me to be Pursuit Episode 018, a younger release from Finger Lakes Distilling. I’ve not had anything from them before, but this was phenomenal given the age, I’m sort of blown away that they’re performing this well so young. I’m going to make it a priority to try more from them now.
