  • Russ's Drink Corner
  • Smooth Ambler Old Scout American Whiskey
  • Description
    • Old Scout American Whiskey is a union of two whiskies distilled from classic bourbon mash bills. One is aged in new oak barrels and the other matures in rejuvenated, re-charred bourbon casks. While this unique aging excuses the marriage from being called bourbon, it shares all of the character and drinkability you would expect from a whiskey on the brink of being one. Like the other Old Scout whiskeys, it is blended in limited, hand selected batches and without chill filtration.
