2021 Ultimate Spirits Challenge

Smooth Ambler Old Scout Single Barrel Cask Strength Straight Rye Whiskey (United States), 57.2% abv, $49.99, 750 ml

Very Good,
Strong Recommendation

Tasting Note:

Deeper tones of boysenberry jam, maple syrup, and clove are lifted by grapefruit peel and white flowers. Exceptionally smooth on the palate considering its high ABV; sumptuous notes of molasses, dates, nutmeg, and brown butter come to mind before a silky finish ensues.
