  • Intro:

    Distilled by Finger Lakes Distilling in New York State, this episode from Pursuit Series is a single barrel bourbon and bottled at cask strength after 7 years of aging - a notable accomplishment for the relatively new craft distiller. Finger Lakes is an important component for the Pursuit Spirits gang - it's also a key ingredient in the notably successful Pursuit United bottling from the team as well.

  • Nose:

    Peaches, caramel, cream snd honey. The promise of dessert flavors from the description is certainly no joke, at least from first sniff.

  • Taste:

    Sweet, boozy, rich and dessert-y. Moderate mouthfeel, honey, caramel and a hint of apple pie. There's some youth and grain hiding in the wings, but ever just so. It's not dominant, though a touch surprising at 7 years old.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, peppery, buttery toffee and a hint of peaches. Faint grain, light tannin, some savory tobacco.

  • Overall:

    Another delightful single cask, though I've noticed Finger Lakes seemingly can't shake a touch of grain, seemingly despite the age of their distillate. Nevertheless, that component of the flavor works well with the other flavors at hand, creating a unique and inviting canvas of dessert character.
