Michter's 10yr Rye 2018 & Smooth Ambler Old Scout American Whiskey 107pf PlumpJack Cask 2pk
This 2-pack includes the Michter's 10 Year Rye 2018 and Smooth Ambler Plumpjack Cask Old Scout American Whiskey 107.
The Michter's 10 Year Rye 2018 is the first released in over a year. Last year's was very well reviewed, and this one is just as exciting. Since this is going to be a sourced barrel, it is a good representation of the quality that they are working with in their batches. At their new facility, their batches are a maximum of 24 barrels, which is a much smaller batch than many of the ‘small batch’ whiskies available. They also dilute before adding to the barrel rather than after, helping with the big flavor of the resulting product.
Nose: Tantalizingly sweet from afar, then boozy and rich as you get near. Roasted fruit-like nuttiness with a pleasant sour smoke undertone. Lemon and orange peel help brighten it, making it round and inviting.
Palate: Flavor and pleasant heat are initially slightly overwhelming, but the second sip wakes up the palate and nuances emerge. Baking spices like vanilla and cocoa bean are evident. Similar to the nose, a fruit-like quality comes through, but with vegetal toasted almonds. Big and mouth coating, it is incredibly easy to sip. Caramel transitions into butterscotch on the long finish.
The Smooth Ambler Plumpjack Cask Old Scout American Whiskey 107 shows a beautiful amber color with aromas of dried raisins, subtle caramel sweetness, fruit cake and hazelnut. On the palate, more hazelnut, caramel and oak followed by a pleasant spicy finish. 750ml - 53.5%abv
