Established in 2009 by Tinsley Azariah Galyean, Jr. and John Little, Smooth Ambler Spirits is a state-of-the-art distillery located in the rural Greenbrier Valley of West Virginia. By combining modern technology, high quality natural resources and a hands-on distillation process, Smooth Ambler is able to produce remarkable craft spirits which are bold, complex and perfectly balanced.
Smooth Ambler Spirits "Old Scout" Blended American Whiskey is a union of two different whiskeys, one aged in new oak barrels and the other aged in rejuvenated, re-charred bourbon casks. The result is a uniquely complex, impeccably balanced whiskey that retains the distinctive character of the brand, offering a lively nose of citrus fruit, honey and cinnamon accompanied by distinct aromas of charred oak, raisin and almond. The palate opens with a bold, spicy note which leads to citrus fruit, baked apple, vanilla and oak on the long, structured finish.
"This amber-hued, six-year-old Bourbon has a bright, honeyed, slightly peachy scent. On the palate, it has a sweet creaminess, very smooth and light, finishing dry and lovely with just a bit of spicy rye-like sparkle. A fine choice for Manhattans and other Bourbon-based cocktails." - Wine Enthusiast
