Smooth Ambler Contradiction Bourbon Whiskey
Embedded in the rolling Appalachian hills of Greenbrier County, West Virginia, Smooth Ambler Spirits is a testament to the hard-work and craftsmanship of TAG Galyean and John Little. Working in their state-of-the-art, 5,200 square foot distillery, Galyean and Little combine innovative techniques with locally-sourced grains and a hands-on distillation process to produce remarkable spirits that are bold, complex and perfectly balanced.
Smooth Ambler Contradiction Bourbon combines two- to three-year-old stock of the distillery’s Smooth Ambler Yearling Bourbon (27%), dubbed a “wheater” for the high amount of wheat contained in its mashbill, with a nine-year-old, high-rye bourbon sourced from the old Seagram’s facility in Indiana (73%). The “contradiction” is a nod to Smooth Ambler Spirits’ efforts to create its own amazing whiskey while simultaneously sourcing and bringing to market the best whiskey made by others.
Aroma of orchard fruits, maraschino cherries and mint, which leads to a robust palate filled with toffee, caramel, burnt sugar and nutmeg. The exquisite finish is marked by hints of sweet grass, buttered rye bread and mild spice.
