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 13th release.
Spicy, oaky and powerful. Brown sugar, blueberry pop tart (strangely enough), toffee and vanilla bean ice cream.
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.
Long but tannic and dry. Perhaps a bit more tannic than I’d like but the cocoa, toffee and sweet cream notes balance alright.
Not my favorite of the Pursuit Series, but lovers of dry oaky releases will be all in on this episode.
