Recently, John from Bourbon Finder and I were chatting about doing some blind samples for one and other. Coupled with the fact he was interested in trying agave, we agreed to meet up and share some blind samples of a couple expressions of stuff we had been drinking. This is a blind sample from that, and I was given the reveal after completing all 4 samples and sending over my notes. Let's dive in.
Toffee, brown sugar, vanilla, and oak. Sweet, decadent, desserty. Creamy and sweet.
Sweet, oaky, nicely balanced. Thick mouth feel, orange peel, light minerality, cocoa. Rich and desserty, heat very much in check.
Long, complex and sweet. Oak is there in the right amount, and the desserty notes play well with tannins and minerality.
Big fan of this. This was revealed to me to be Pursuit Series Episode 012. I've sampled this before, but this time I liked it a bit better. This release is really hitting its stride, and is an excellent example of what Dickel can do when it's performing well.
