Smooth Ambler Old Scout 10 Year
Smooth Ambler Distillery
$44 at Kiawah Spirits on Kiawah Island, SC
Color: Deep amber- similar to the 7 Year.
Nose: Delicious, creamy caramelized sugar with hints of citrus and fruit. An undeniable scent of pear.
Tasting notes: Vanilla and caramel smoothness; citrus peel and honey notes are followed by spiciness from the rye and woody oak; red licorice lingers for a nice, long, sweet finish.
Overall: A. Old Scout 10 Year is simply delicious. Bourbon that tastes delicious should get a good grade. I don't care if Old Scout is sourced from MGP. It was well-aged, well-selected, and makes for one of my favorite bourbons available.
