Something different for your home bar: a fantastic Rye finished in Port barrels.
John Little of Smooth Ambler Spirits set out with his father-in-law to make something his adopted state of West Virginia would be proud of. In 2009, that dream became a reality when they opened up their distillery in the tiny town of Maxwellton — which sits in the middle of the Appalachian Mountains. They have a single, small batch still. But sales have done well and they are up to approximately 80 barrels per month produced across two shifts. In-house they produce Whiskeys, Gins, a Rum, and a Vodka. The company was purchased by Pernod Ricard a few years ago, but John Little still runs the show.
Smooth Ambler Old Scout Straight Rye Whiskey Port Finish takes their iconic Rye Whiskey and finishes it in Port barrels. The nutty, spicy, and faintly minty flavors mingle with distinct notes of Port Wine. The result is sweet and spicy with a velvety mouthfeel that weighs in at a decent 51.5% ABV. Sip on this fantastic concoction neat or make classic cocktails with a sweet twist.
