Bourbon Pursuit and Keg N Bottle 1792 Barrel Pick 750 ML
Bourbon insiders have long acknowledged that full proof bourbon has a distinctively rich flaor. This bourbon has been bottled at its original 125 barrel entry proof, just as it was years ago, when the barrels were first filled. Strong and full flavor, this bold bourbon boasts an incredible deep and smoky taste, superbly balanced with sweet vanilla and notes of caramel.
About This Item
Josh Hollifield, who's been on the podcast twice now, rolled out 5 barrels for us to choose from. They were all just a tad over 125 proof, ranging from 126-128 proof. So we didn't proof anything down and went straight from the barrel. We all got rid of barrel #1 immediately, then it came down in a blind taste between 2, 3, and 5. Ryan and Jeremy Kendrick like #3 while Kenny, Andrew and Brian were hating on it because we thought it was too hot. However, everyone was in agreement #5 was great. Albeit, we took it down to a blind and #2 ended up being the unanimous winner with a 4 to 1 vote.
