Smooth Ambler Old Scout Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Old Scout Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Six and seven year old barrels with a high rye content of 36%, this fine whiskey has exceptional taste and smoothness. Non chill filtered, non-carbon filtered. A robust 99 proof, it’s strong, but deliciously drinkable like all of Smooth Ambler’s offerings. Bold, sweet-spicy flavors with subtle apple, cherry and tobacco aroma.

 

Smooth Ambler Old Scout Straight Rye Whiskey

Old Scout Straight Rye Whiskey

Old Scout Rye Old Scout Straight Rye Whiskey is a part of the Old Scout line of whiskey that is “merchant bottled”. It’s a 7 year-old whiskey using a mash bill of 95% rye and 5% malted barley. You’ll like the sweet and smooth character while it still retains the spicy and bold notes for which all good ryes are known. Black tea, honey, baking spices and a bit of mint make this a powerful whiskey that’s enjoyed neat or stands up well in a cocktail.

 

Lukas Barrel Committee Single Barrel’s

The Lukas Barrel Committee has hand-selected a single barrel of both the Old Scout Bourbon (Barrel #527) and the Old Scout Ten Barrel Proof (Barrel #366). These barrels should arrive by early summer 2014 so stay tuned because there will an extremely limited amount of these bottles available for sale. We are currently looking into doing a single barrel of the rye.
