Figured the DoY thread needed a compliment.
My vote goes to Smooth Ambler. I have went through an embarrassment of barrel proof Old Scout Rye this year, and they're just fantastic. Their 10 year bourbon, I honestly don't care for all that much, but their 7 and a private selection 9 I've had (same as the 10 on mashbill, but was much deeper and richer in every dimension) are very good as well.
Add to that the new Contradition that they're putting out, and their pride/transparency with labeling themselves as an Artisan Bottler. Looking forward to great things to come from them in the future.
