    Re: More Sourced Bourbon - Smooth Ambler

    That's what I've been anticipating, the day when someone will create a blend from whiskeys sourced from different micros, or both micros and majors. That would be very parallel to Scotland.

    And then Diageo will buy them all.

    *Likewise on that. El Ditto! That would be something... a new wave.

    Love the last line.

    We might be doing some of that in the future...blending our stuff with the big boys...IF that makes a better product.

    Re: More Sourced Bourbon - Smooth Ambler

    A friend dropped by with a bottle of the Smooth Ambler Old Scout SBW. Kudos to them for clearly labeling it as sourced whiskey. Overall, it's an OK pour. I found it to be good for a five year old, certainly better than something like a JBW. And the 99 proof is a plus.

    The fact that someone else bought it was also a plus.
