The Oak Collection is an ongoing series of curated whiskey blends and barrel finishes that provide an exploration of taste and constant innovation. Now, the Collection is being expanded by Pursuit Spirits re-release of its Pursuit United Oak Collection Bourbon Finished with Toasted American and French Oak with Batch #4CD. The formula was developed by Master Blender Ryan Cecil, who perfectly balances the flavors of the oak finishes through a double blending process.
For this release, the base blend was created using 10 barrels that were hand-selected from 3 different distilleries in Kentucky (Bardstown Bourbon Company), Tennessee (Undisclosed, but not in Tullahoma), and New York (Finger Lakes Distilling). The process involved dividing the blend into proprietary ratios and imparting the two oak flavor profiles individually in a finishing vessel. Once each component has the desired amount of toasted or French oak character, the two are blended together once again. This double blending process provides an innovative and custom flavor profile where sweetness and bitterness compliment each other.
Pursuit United Oak Collection Bourbon Finished with Toasted American and French Oak is bottled at 108 proof and is now available in select markets in Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, and online at seelbachs.com for $74.99.
