Rye Whiskey - 2013
San Francisco World Spirits Competition
What's in a name? Smooth Ambler Old Scout 7 Year Old Rye (75cl) whiskey is called whiskey because it's produced in America. Were it from Scotland it would be spelled Smooth Ambler Old Scout 7 Year Old Rye (75cl) whisky, rather than whiskey.
Nose: Caster sugar leads into delicious rye and a dusting of cocoa.
Palate: More brown sugar notes now. Hot, sticky and melting in a pan.
Finish: Smooth, warming and spicy.
initial hit of vanilla and acetone. Moves on to old leather, cola and lavender. woody, with coriander and ripe banana.
initially it tastes vanilla sweet then hints odlf sweet floral notes, tannin, wood then finally rose water and Parma violets. WOW!

Sorry but I will not be going near this again. One of the worst 'whiskys' I have ever tasted. Tasted like it was matured in an oil can !
