Embedded in the rolling Appalachian hills of Greenbrier County, West Virginia, Smooth Ambler Spirits is a testament to the hard-work and craftsmanship of TAG Galyean and John Little. Working in their state-of-the-art, 5,200 square foot distillery, Galyean and Little combine innovative techniques with locally-sourced grains and a hands-on distillation process to produce remarkable spirits that are bold, complex and perfectly balanced. Old Scout Straight Bourbon Whiskey is steeped in the tradition of the Highland Valley. The bourbon is composed of a mashbill of 60% corn, 36% rye and 4% malted barley. Once the grains have been sourced, they are fermented and then distilled through a copper pot still before being matured in new, charred American oak casks. We worked directly with John Little in order to source two private barrels of Old Scout Bourbon. Barrel #525 was selected by Caskers. Aged for eight years and bottled at 121.2 proof, the bourbon has gorgeous notes of caramel, toffee, moist tobacco, raisins, plums and toffee. The aroma gives way to warm notes of spicy cloves, sweet vanilla, chewy leather and a hint of citrus. Balanced and complex, this is an incredibly beautiful and complete bourbon. Barrel #918 was selected by John Little himself. Aged for eight years and bottled at 119.6 proof, the bourbon has a slightly fruiter aroma, with touches of orange zest, citrus and apples that complement hints of dark spices. The aroma gives way to notes of figs, dates, butterscotch and caramel that are complemented by touches of tropical fruits, including bananas and papaya. The finish is round and complex, with a perfect finale. "Barrel 918 is great, too," says Little. These are two of the most exquisite bourbons we have ever featured! Pick up a bottle of each today!
