  • Excerpt: Clingier than a crazy ex spouse. This one holds onto the palate and fluctuates between the dark and heavy caramel that is backed up by vanilla and fruit until finally giving in to the oak and spice on the back.

  • Intro:

    INTRO: A blend of whiskey distilled In Kentucky (Bardstown Bourbon Company), Tennessee (Undisclosed) and New York State (Finger Lakes Distilling), Pursuit United is the brainchild of Kenny Coleman and Ryan Cecil, of Pursuit Spirits. Highlighting the power of blending to deliver bold, unique flavors, the pair set out to blend high rye and wheated bourbons for a new entry in their portfolio. This is batch 2 of the series, released in 2021.

  • Nose:

    Spicy and maple forward on the nose. Orange peel, pepper, rising bread. Young but not vocally so. Vivacious, flora, fun.

  • Taste:

    Pleasant nutty palate, tobacco, toffee and praline. Rich and delicious, like some of my favorite Knob Creek. Medium mouthfeel.

  • Finish:

    Long peppery finish. Most youth here, hot and peppery but full of flavor. Oaky and peppery.

  • Overall:

    Once again, great blending gives us something no doubt improved compared to the merits of the individual parts.
