Whisky Advent Calendar Day 7: Day 7 Smooth Ambler Old Scout 7 Year Old Bourbon

Hint on the window: Faint gingerbread

One of the few bourbons in the calendar. As a bourbon drinker, I appreciate the addition. 

 

At 60% corn, 36% rye and 4% malt, it's a unique combination. 
The Nose runs deep and rich, with hints of raisin, cherry and warm leather. Noticeably a bourbonm the dark fruit sweetness is there.
The Body is impressive. Smooth, fresh, spicy, oaky,sweet and did I mention smooth?
The Finish brings a striking citrus and intense woodiness. Simply dlightful.
