Rye Whiskey - 2013
San Francisco World Spirits Competition
Insider knowledge: Smooth Ambler Old Scout 7 Year Old Rye whiskey is named whiskey by virtue of the fact it's from America. If distilled in Scotland the spelling would be Smooth Ambler Old Scout 7 Year Old Rye whisky, as opposed to 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.
