I’m immediately reminded of Rare Breed Rye with this pour, albeit with a bit less of a mouthfeel and where I think Rare Breed Rye drinks with a big bright character, the Pursuit United Rye comes through with a darker and richer profile.
All in all this is a really nice rye expression and I think it’s proof-positive that the blending over at Pursuit Spirits isn’t a one trick pony. If you liked the Pursuit United bourbon, I have to recommend you try the rye as well.
TheBourbonFinder thanks Pursuit United for graciously providing us a sample of their product. Being able to try new things in the whiskey space, without strings attached, is an opportunity we greatly appreciate. Per our review ethos, we provide objective reviews and commentary on media samples of spirits and products; remember, friends, these are the good old days of whiskey!
Our grading system: As mentioned in our About Us page, we’re excited to share bourbon with our friends, family, and readers. There are enough critics, cynics, and curmudgeons in the whiskey world as it is, so our goal is to foster the bourbon community in a positive way by bringing fun and entertaining content whenever possible–as such–we decided that applying precise scores to whiskey was simply too serious for us (and didn’t accurately showcase variability in taste from day to day). We use a simple grade school system to apply a grade to the whiskeys we review because we feel it is indicative of the whiskey’s grade for us on that particular day. A grade of a “B” today may very well be a “B+” or even a “B-” on another day, so rather than focusing on a precise score today that may not stand the test of time, we are just sharing our overall grade of that pour for that one tasting. Pour a bit and enjoy, friends, these are the good old days of whiskey!
