Smooth Ambler – Contradiction- Blend of Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Smooth Ambler – Contradiction– Blend of Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Bottled at 100  Proof by Smooth Ambler Spirits, WV
This one is a blend of 2 bourbons.  First one is a 2 year wheat bourbon and the second one is a 9 year rye bourbon.
I haven’t seen this bottle in MA, but in my travels to San Fran was able to pick it up for $48.
Nose – Alcohol burn hits you right away, some dill spices
Taste – Refreshing, Good amount of oak, sweetness from the wheat comes through,a bit of spice from the rye and vanilla.
Finish – Long and a bit harsh, strong burn hits and stays with you, a bit of oak.
Value – This one’s a bit a rough to drink neat, but adding an ice cube really gets rid of the burn on the finish and makes this actually really tasty.
