The Pursuit United are the two flagship spirits of company, a bourbon and a rye. Though the goal is to keep the flavor profiles similar with each release, Cecil and Coleman now label their releases with batch codes.
Vital Stats: Over four years old, aged in new American oak barrels, 54% ABV, mash bill: x, SRP $65/ 750ml bottle.
Appearance: This is a deep mahogany-brown in color.
Nose: The nose offers up warm notes of whole grain toast, molasses, buckwheat honey, and black tea. There are some unusual notes of butter, warm corn chips, cooked blueberries, wet paper, and aluminum foil. It’s unusual yet intriguing and appetizing.
Palate: This opens with a bitter-sweet note. The body is moderate with grippy tannins. At first, it offered up a note of salty licorice that melts into notes of freshly baked pumpernickel bread, cherry-cola, and homemade root beer. This is loaded with cola spice notes. The finish is linger, building into distinct notes of tangerine peel and cloves that took a long time to fade. Fantastic.
