Contradiction is an apt name for this tasty bourbon from West Virginia's Smooth Ambler. It's made with a blend of sourced old rye-heavy bourbon and younger wheated bourbon made by the Smooth Ambler folks themselves! Combined, these two whiskeys have created a harmonious bourbon packed full of chocolatey, honey-rich bourbon. Smooth Ambler made a change to Contradiction in mid-2018, with the bottling strength being reduced from 50% to 46% - it most certainly remains simply stunning stuff. Mashbill: Blend of 60% Corn, 20% Wheat, 20% Malted Barley and 75% Corn, 21% Rye, 4% Malted Barley Tasting Notes: 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.
