Smooth Ambler Contradiction
Smooth Ambler // USA
Contradiction is an expression from John Little of Smooth Ambler that combines 73% of the 9 year old high rye mash bill bourbon sourced in Indiana for their Old Scout with 27% of the young wheated bourbon distilled in house in West Virginia - a battle of the bourbons in a single bottle! The 9 yr is 75% corn, 21% rye and 4% malted barley; the 2 yr is 60% corn, 20% wheat and 20% malted barley. It's non-chill filtered and without added color.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak containers.

"While the concept is a blend of what are essentially opposing forces, the flavors have managed to make peace with one another to become one harmonious whiskey! It's smooth, sweet and malty with a warming Christmas spice. There's just enough of a peppery bite at the end to balance out the sweetness."
