This is an independent bottling of Dickel whiskey, bottled for Pursuit Spirits - the IB sourcing arm of Bourbon Pursuit. Bottled at cask strength with no filtering, this is their 12th release.
Bright orange peel, cocoa, fudge and brisk pepper. Tons of cream.
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)
Short to medium but pleasant and bright. Lots of fruit, cocoa and a nice oak body to carry us out.
This is pretty nice. While not as rich as previous episodes, this demonstrates quality in its own way.
