Smooth Ambler Tasting Notes

Posted: November 23, 2014 in American Whiskies, Rye

Smooth Ambler Old Stout 7 year old Rye Whiskey 49.5%

Maverick Drinks

Batch 23/ Tasted: July 2014

A very full and violety nose with no shortage of very sweet and buttery oak. The dark rye begins to assert itself but the oak pretty much wraps it up in that creamy sweetness.

The palate is soft and again showing plenty of sweet, vanilla oak. Like the nose the rye is fairly buried and gives it a fairly simplistic feeling. However it has a good length with hints of violet, green rye spice and oak. The oak isn’t quite as heavy on the palate so the rye does have a chance to come through.
