The feral Single Barrel: Miss it at your own peril.

Smooth Ambler is one of the oldest craft Whiskey producers in the United States which used to source Whiskey from other merchants and married it with their own Spirit. Located in the rural Greenbrier Valley of West Virginia, Smooth Ambler takes advantage of every natural resource: mountain air, clean water springs, and ideal temperature variations. Appalachia has always been known for good Whiskey and Smooth Ambler, established in 2009, brings forth a variety of different Spirits, among them a single barrel Straight Bourbon called Old Scout.

This bottling is selected from a single barrel hand-picked by the owner and is made from 60% corn, 36% rye and 4% malted barley, which makes it a "high rye" Bourbon. Single barrel Whiskeys are uniform in color and flavor. What's more, Old Scout has been bottled at cask strength, so no diluting for this guy. Single Barrel Old Scout won a gold medal from the American Distilling Institute, a silver medal at San Francisco Spirits Competition, and it's been named World's best single barrel in 2016.

Ratings & Reviews
Antti
Antti,
Smooth Ambler Old Scout Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a very good, intense (Cask Strength Single Barrel Tasting Sample) by John Little for the Smooth Ambler Distillery in Maxwellton, West Virginia made with the original mash bill of 60% corn, 36% rye & 4% malted barley, which makes it a "high rye" Bourbon. It is then aged for 5 years in new Charred American Oak Barrels. This same recipe was named World's best single barrel in 2016.' It has a rich birth with notes of buttered corn, honey, oak & spices; while a bold life adds notes of tobacco, almonds, nutmeg & rye spice; that leads to a long & mouth tingling death with notes of spice cake.
