The nose on this gives off model glue and plastic. The palate is very LDI with mint. It starts sweet then has a bit of bitterness at the end which lasts into the finish along with some Eucalyptus notes.
Overall, I think this is the weakest of the three whiskeys in the Old Scout line (and I tend to be a rye fan). Interestingly, this one seems to have less rye character than the six year old bourbon, despite the 95% rye mashbill.
Soft rye spice, vanilla mint, and rich buttery caramel corn. Long butterscotch candy finish. Nothing too complicated but this is nice and very tasty. Dense flavour and a cohesive profile, I really like this. [batch 55, nearly A-]
