Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Smooth Ambler Old Scout 7 Year Old Bourbon to the United States at the moment (although we're working hard to fix that).

In the meantime, our friends over at The Whisky Shop might be able to help you out.

Thank you for your support and understanding 🙂

Old Scout 7 Year Old Bottling Note

When the Smooth Ambler folks are out and about, they'll come across a great bourbon, as you do (remind me to visit America some time soon), and bottle it under the Old Scout name in homage to the Scottish and Irish tradition of independent bottlings. This is a 7 year old straight bourbon, made with a mashbill of 60% corn, 36% rye and 4% malt which has been bottled at their distillery in West Virginia at 49.5% abv.

"brilliant nose.. Fabulous clarity... there is an argument that if you wanted to present someone with a bottle of bourbon to show them all its main and unique characteristics, this should be the one"

- Jim Murray (94.5 Points)

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Cinnamon and ginger biscuits - wonderfully sweet with some yummy spice underneath. Slightly nutty.

Palate: Luxurious caramel, cane sugar and vanilla. Then there's the spice coming through once again, with rich rye in tow.

Finish: A hot finish of cinnamon, more rye and maybe even a little coffee.

Overall: Top stuff all round.

Smooth Ambler Old Scout 7 Year Old Bourbon Reviews

Will repurchase

I'm new to bourbon and in a tasting of several varieties, this was the one that I kept coming back to. The vanilla, the slight burn, the sweet but not too sweet flavour. I'm halfway through one bottle and will be buying it again.

Whisky lover. Japanese and Bourbon.

This stuff is damn good. Cheaper alternative to overpriced Pappy's. Great character and smooth. I love this stuff more than a Yamazaki 18 or a Kentucky Owl.

Wonderful Bourbon

Such great, sweet and spicy flavor and silky smooth for a 49% abv bottling. Totally worth it and a great value for the price.

Solid Nice

A very good drink all around. Start to finish. Superb value.

Great Sourced Bourbon

Smooth Ambler's "Old Scout" label is their batch of sourced bourbon. Distilled offsite, brought back and bottled at their facility. Given they are a young distillery, this is a way to bring a line to market prior to their own batches hit the market. I strongly suggest trying their Yearling - a wheated bourbon (think pappy) that is distilled on site.

Stellar bourbon

I was eager to revisit bourbon having spent the last while sampling Scottish single malts. Took a chance on Smooth Ambler's Old Scout 7 year old on foot on these reviews and Jim Murray's rating. Could not be more glad I did. I'm no expert but have tried a fair number of bourbons and this is without a shadow of a doubt the best I've had. Huge array of flavours here. Big, bold, and spicy and my God it's smooth. Genuinely worth the money. Highly recommended and I'll certainly be back for more

Top Shelf Nectar

I have tried 34 different Bourbons thus so far....This is BY FAR the best ever. I have had both the 7 and 10 and both are extraordinary! If you come across one of similar quality, it should be treasured as Bourbon of this quality is very hard to find!

Rich, massive, reminds me of 4roses

The sort of 'turkish delight' (I'm sure that's psychosomatic) edge to this is something I very rarely find in Bourbons, and I'd love to know how it gets there. Rich, smooth, and incredible. Bravo.

This is truly a fine bourbon, its converted 2 friends to drinking bourbon who previously hated it, they can't stop raving! Thinking of trying the 10 year next!
