Sometimes Dr. Jekyll, sometimes Mr. Hyde.

Smooth Ambler is the second Spirit producer that references walking and we're sure you won't walk away from this bottle unimpressed. Deep in the Appalachian hills where natural spring waters flow and fresh mountain air... well, floats (?), a team of Whiskey-loving friends established a state-of-the-art distillery. They produce vodka and gin, but also mature hundreds of barrels of Whiskey. When the time of bottling comes, the entire community joins in and everyone signs their own bottle.

The only contradiction found in this Bourbon is in its name, because this Spirit is bound to agree with many. It's a blend of two Whiskeys: a young wheated and an old rye-rich Bourbon. Talk about bridging the intergenerational gap, right?

While these two Spirits had their time to blend and meld, this Whiskey taste like two distinct separate Bourbons at different times, so there could be a bit of a contradiction in there. But it's a badass contradiction; like Jekyll and Hyde.

The name isn’t a gimmick. I drink this and get confused as to what is going on. You get earthy notes, like you’re a on a farm. But at the same time you get fruity flavors from the rye. then you get a bit spice and vanilla. It doesn’t make any sense but it’s absolutely delicious.

Caramel and wood notes.

Great neat and easy to sip, no need for water or ice. The vanilla hits your nose immediately, but it’s not overpowering.

I like it, but it's better in a Manhattan than it is straight up.

Chris

A very full, rich bourbon. The combination of older rye bourbon and younger wheated bourbon comes together in a magical way.

Best bourbon I’ve had yet smooth like a wheated bourbon Smokey aroma and finish good neat or on ice
 
Grayson
Grayson,
Little more bite than I like on the first sip, but every sip after that was very good. Very smooth, and the blend of the two bourbons keeps you wanting that next sip just to try picking out more of the flavors that mesh so well together. Really good bourbon.

So far this has been my favorite bottle that I’ve ordered, so much so to the point that it’s slowly becoming my daily drinker!

Excellent blend! Very smooth. The vanilla hits your nose immediately, but it’s not overpowering. Great neat and easy to sip. Will be keeping this one in the rotation!
 
Patrick
Patrick,
I've never had a bourbon quite as smooth as this, and for being 100 proof, and blended - that's all the more incredible. It's pretty tasty as well! All in all, this is a unique and pretty outstanding whiskey.

Very dynamic and one of the most original flavors I’ve ever had. A great dram to keep in the rotation when you want something unique.

Bought this for the name and photo on the bottle only, alcohol inside was a bonus. Wasn't very tasty but it got the job done

Probably one of the worst bourbons I've ever had.
