  • Intro:

    This is a single barrel release from Smooth Ambler. Bottled at cask strength from sourced MGP distillate.

  • Nose:

    A good bit of ethanol. Some vanilla, allspice and molasses under that alcohol nose.

  • Taste:

    Oak, some mild char, vanilla and more ethanol. The 8yr Rye was stronger proof wise and let almost none of its alcohol show through relative to this.

  • Finish:

    Long and hot. More wood and molasses.

  • Overall:

    This was mediocre. Not bad, but very heavy ethanol covered most of the good notes here.

  • Score:

    5
