  • Intro:

    Pursuit Spirits Oak Collection features a blend of whiskey from Tennessee, Indiana and New York that's blended and then finished with Innerstave cubes of Toasted American Oak and French Oak.

  • Nose:

    Sweet and buttery, this bourbon release is full of spicy pepper, toasted marshmallows, mellow brown butter and plenty of toffee.

  • Taste:

    Sweet and pleasant on the palate, it's a bit thin and meek, but plenty of dessert character reigns here. Toffee, more brown butter, sweet cream and a touch of pepper.

  • Finish:

    Medium finish, a touch of oak and maple syrup blends with toasted marshmallow, praline, brown butter once again and a touch of cream.

  • Overall:

    Overall, this release is entirely pleasant. It's sweet, easy drinking. Mellow, easy to pour for sure. Overall, I think the heavy finishing with Toasted Oak and French Oak sort of masks some of what makes the original Pursuit Bourbon unique: bold flavors, expert assembly and a beautiful, layered palate. That said, totally easy to enjoy, but if you're looking for the heights of Pursuit United's releases, you're going to want the OG Bourbon.
