Smooth Ambler Big Level

Due to the generosity of a fellow SBer I can now give my take on this Big Level.  To me it tasted just like corn whiskey with that Frito corn chip flavor and green wood.  Why they would release a whiskey that young does nothing good for the brand moving forward.

I haven't bought a bottle, and want for awhile, but I see a trend slowly happening. I'm starting to see it sit on the shelf, no repeat buyers. I'm sure that its not what the MD wanted to put on the market, but the people holding the check book may have put pressure to get something out on the market. I could be wrong, maybe they felt like it's a good bourbon and was ready.

I got a bottle and, despite the generally negative reviews, I thought it was pretty decent.  A bit young, but promising.  Then on Saturday a friend and I did a vertical - Big Level, SAOS 8 year, SAOS 11 year and VOS 19.  Yeah, I know the Old Scouts are NDP, and were obviously older, but compared to them I found the Big Level almost undrinkable.
