So this was sold out in a matter of 4 to 5 hours?!

No, it unfortunately only took abut 15-20 minutes. Did not expect it to go that fast.

Hey Paul
Have you ever got the single barrel rye from smooth ambler?

The 11 year is out too if you can find it.

We have had some 11 year old recently too. It is just random which one we get each time.

Hi Paul
I love smooth ambler and I loved the last batch you had. I plan on ordering a bottle here in a minute.
Have you ever had a single barrel for TWCP?
I was out of town and saw a 375 of the yearling and didn't have my wallet on me. Needless to say it was gone when I came back. Do you think that will be available in the St. Louis market?
One more long shot. I took for granted that you had plenty of the rye whiskey by them. Have they totally ran out?
I bought 1 bottle and I still have it. I usually wait till I get 2 befor I open one. No rush on the reply and thanks

We have been asking to do our own barrel, but they are like most - short of product. So we will keep asking. Rye has been gone for awhile. Hopefully we will see it again. Have not seen the Yearling, but will ask.

Looks like there is a good chance I will get some Yearling. I will post when it arrvives

That would be great!!! I know them and high west use sources whiskey. They are really upfront about it and they seem to really know what there doing. Smooth ambler is a great company. I think yearling may be some of the first whiskey that they distilled.
Some people hate that they source whiskey but it's really expensive to have all the equipment. Then you have to wait a few years to get a product. All the whiskies they put out are great and have a great price point. Well they have a great price at TWCP. It's about the same price as the regular Old Scout. This isn't a paid commercial and I'm not an actor. All the old scouts are great and one of my favorite blends ( American whiskey ) is CONTRADICTION.
I wish I could of tried the single barrel rye. I think about smooth amblers whiskies are gonna be like the pappy. If you didn't pappy 6 years ago then you have to work your butt off to find it. Your gonna hear someone looking for it one day and someone will respond with 2 years ago it was all over the shelves. My opinion
Thanks paul

Thanks, it looks like the Yearling will be $22 for the half bottle. I had a good customer use the Smooth Ambler Cask in a tasting and said it came in as a close second to Pappy Van Winkle 15 Year Old. The Cask Strength is quite delicious.

Did you get 5 barrels? Or just cases of each one?

Paul Hayden said...

Just the bottles, they were not our barrels. Inventory the distributor received.
