The 21c Selects program is bringing you an exclusive new way of enjoying Kentucky’s favorite spirits. Our hand-picked barrels have been bottled in limited quantities for our guests to enjoy. You can enjoy these as tasting flights in Lockbox and if you love it, you can go ahead and take a whole bottle home from our museum shop. The Smooth Ambler Old Scout is a 7 year single barrel, Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey from Warehouse R, South Side, Rick 13, Tier 2, barrel position D. For those of you who like to be in the know, we’re offering in depth tasting notes of this lovely selection.
Mash Bill: 35% Rye, 60% Corn, 5% malted barley
Color: light straw
Nose: wood, white pepper
Taste: wood up front, baking spices, creamy vanilla, cinnamon chewing gum
Finish: Medium finish with a lot of spice. Lingers for a bit and slowly tapers off with reminiscent flavors of maple syrup over French toast.
