Nose: Sugar, cinnamon, mint, tablet, dark caramel, foam banana sweets and spicy rye.
Palate: Thick caramel, honey, more cinnamon and prickly spices.
Finish: Burnt dark sugar, eucalyptus, mint, corn and a sliver of lemon rind, although the finish fades pretty quickly.
Notes: This is a lovely smooth bourbon and I could certainly get used to this. I really like the rye character in the Old Scout and it's a highly enjoyable drop. That said, as far as bourbon goes, the ever reliable Elijah Craig 12 remains my favourite - for the moment, but I will definitely investigate this one again in the future.
