Smooth Ambler Contradiction Bourbon
Established in 2009 by Tinsley Azariah Galyean, Jr. and John Little, Smooth Ambler Spirits is a state-of-the-art distillery located in the rural Greenbrier Valley of West Virginia. By combining modern technology, high quality natural resources and a hands-on distillation process, Smooth Ambler is able to produce remarkable craft spirits which are bold, complex and perfectly balanced.
Contradiction is non-chill filtered and is full-bodied, with notes of dried fruit and butter rum, and has the end-result of tasting like a four-grain bourbon.
Merchant bottled bourbon made with corn, rye and malted barley married with homemade bourbon made with corn, wheat and malted barley.
Continuous column distillation and pot distillation.
A blend of different straight whiskeys, there are different ages represented in Contradiction. The majority whiskey is more than 9 years in age.
SOURCE OF GRAINS
Grains from a variety of sources.
Full of oak, dried cherries, vanilla, and cinnamon creating a signature mature bourbon nose. Sweet from the wheat and spice from the rye and a bit of leather round out the palate. Its viscosity creates a smooth and pleasant finish.
