Nose: Whip cream and salted caramel create the base of this bouquet. Peanuts, coffee bean, and leather also surface for a pleasant aroma.
Taste: Sweet corn unfolds into a heavy nutty-vanilla note on the palate. Toasted oak combines with a significant earthy tone and a unique clay note.
Finish: Medium in length with a sweet barrel char finish.
Conclusion: This is a difficult bottle to find in my area so when I saw it at MSRP I picked it up immediately. Unfortunately, Old Scout TEN fell short of my expectations. It's smooth and the flavors are bold, however the overall taste doesn't do it for me. It's not bad by any stretch, but at $50 a bottle, there are many other bourbons I would recommend.
My Rating: C (Decent)
