Old Scout Rye 8YO #1361 Bottling Note

Single barrel rye, you say? Oh yes, this is a fantastic single barrel rye whiskey that has been released as part of Smooth Ambler's Old Scout range. It was matured for 8 years before being bottled by the craft distillers in West Virginia at cask strength - a generous 57.7% ABV. Spectacular whiskey, suitable for sipping neat or using in cocktails...

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Dense rye bread wafts give it a robust core, complimented by caramel apples, burnt sugar and a touch of oak-y vanilla showing off the extra age compared to the 7YO. Nods to black liquorice, too.

Palate: Cinnamon, nutmeg and classic rye spice. Little hints of blueberry open up sweeter elements, including both Black Jacks and Fruit Salads (yes, both!).

Finish: Spicy but relaxed, with notes of dark chocolate, pencil shavings and orange peels lasting.

Smooth Ambler Old Scout 8 Year Old Rye (cask 1361) Single Barrel Release Reviews

Massively complex

Didn't think a Rye Whiskey could have this depth and level of complexity - this really reminds me of some Scotches in terms of the palate delivery and finish. Exceptional.
