This is a single barrel from Smooth Ambler in West Virginia. It is MGP bourbon, bottled at cask strength.
Clove, molasses, pepper, tobacco and earthy maple. Very standard MGP profile here.
Medium mouth feel, some heat. Peppery and loaded with maple, nice earthy character. Some molasses and tobacco.
Long but growing a bit hot. Clove and pepper, as well as allspice are dominant. Dry and oaky.
This was nice, but too dry, oaky and spicy for my tastes.
