Of all the Pappy-aged beers I've ever had (and, yes, that includes both regular and vanilla Dark Lord), this is the one that pulls off the intense bourbony-ness the best. The Scotch Ale is more of a canvas against which the bourbon nodes can flitter and dance, and the beeriness is almost completely subsumed by the Pappy.
