Smooth Ambler Old Scout 10 Year Bourbon (Binny’s Spring Selection Barrel #2288) Review

This is a 10 year bourbon from Smooth Ambler that was selected by Binny’s and bottled at 49.5% ABV.

Nose: Dark cherries, wood chips, brown sugar, banana runts – heavy overall.

Palate: Strong oak up front with fruit punch turning somewhat muted with molasses and charcoal.

Finish: Heat lingers with sawdust and young grains.

Rating: 81/100 – A fairly standard SAOS bourbon all around. I enjoyed the Autumn selection quite a bit better.

Value for the money: These have sold out, but I believe they retailed around $65. I would pass on this particular bottling at that price.
