Smooth Ambler

Smooth Ambler “Old Scout”

6 yrs. old 49.5% (101 proof) Batch 8; Bottle Date June 19, 2012; Bottled by JH; West Virginia

Tasting was done on the rocks. This was a brave choice considering the 101 proof of this whiskey. A proper bourbon guide review would best have been done with a splash of water. Brave… that is how we can describe our drinking!

$40 at the VA ABC stores for a 750ml.

Rater Comments
Jason Fruit follwed by spice. Considering the alcohol content this is quite smooth and nice with a fire blazing in the living room.  Recommend to all.
Tripp Caramel, spice, citrus.  Very balanced and incredibly smooth. Really nice drink. One of my favorites. Great all around bourbon.
