Whisky Reviews for Smooth Ambler 07-year-old

- I do like Rye and this is a really nice one . Enjoyed this generous sample courtesy of lincolnimp
Rich toffee, a touch of banana, chocolate orange, honey and vanilla.
Smooth and spicy with mint, dried fruit, ripe nectarine and sherbet dip. Really is easy on the palate. I could imagine this would be a good mixer.
Medium to long finish with orange and lots of spice on the death.
- The nose is floral & honeyed with a little flapjack.
The palate has some presence but there is a chemically bitterness that I do not like at first but it does improve but then its metallic, its just the rye profile I feel.
I think its above average for sure, and the more you have the better it gets but I could not drink a lot of it.
Nice to try different things :)
- A very tasty Rye, interesting without too much attention. The nose is one of the most pleasant and sweetest I have for a Rye without losing his character.
In the first moment actually very vanillig, indefinable sweetness of pancakes or lollipops, it warms him something and gives him time comes the Rye but still out, very nice cinnamon, gingerbread, waffles and brown sugar appear, a bit dusty cupboard
Crispier than intended by the nose, nutmeg, cinnamon, a fruity sweetness is present, orange, orange bitters, maggi, black pepper and oak, rye fights with the sugar
Almost a little apple peel, bitter oak and nutmeg, medium long
- A lovely rye!
Sweet vanilla like rye, sweet fruity pancake like scent (reduced: becomes more exotic)
Soft, sweet, honey, hint of vanilla, spices (reduced: mellow, spicy, a lovely sweetness)
Warming, sweet woody spices
Pretty chemical at first, like nail polish remover. Vodka lemon even. Pre-assembled (Ikea) furniture, green apple and white pepper.
Apple, glue, caramel, vanilla and raspberry.
Caramel and apple.
- tasted with Aby and MaltMartin
citrus, lemon- 7up, sugar, rum bonbon , syrup and raisins
spices, white pepper, some cleaning liquid and bitter fruits - grapefruits
spices and armagnac
- A very nice rye whiskey from a new distillery on the block (though this expression is sourced whiskey from LDI/MGP). Bang for your buck!
