Nose: This whiskey is stealth in the nose at first but just wait. Upon time in the glass the personality begins to take shape. Toffee, caramel, brown sugar vanilla and brown butter start off the show with slight hints at stone fruits like pluots and yellow plums. Even more time in the glass shows shades of blonde tobacco.
Palate: Incredibly smooth for the proof. Reminds me a lot of Four Roses OBSV, (duh!). The rye begins to show suit with an array of spice box flavors, cola nut, vanilla bean and more brown sugar.
Finish: Finishes long, dry and spicy with the duration of a jazz solo and the precision and of a sniper.
The appearance shows a beautiful amber color with aromas of dried raisins, subtle caramel sweetness, fruit cake and hazelnut.
On the palate, more hazelnut, caramel and oak followed by a pleasant spicy finish.

Big Level Bourbon is a wheated bourbon 100% mashed, distilled, aged, proofed, and bottled at the Smooth Ambler distillery in West Virginia. No chill filtration.
Tasting Notes: Toffee and pancake batter on the nose. With pleasant warmth in the mid-palate. Lingering finish. Lots of pecan pie.
Tasting Notes: Sweet, baking spice, cake icing, toasted graham cracker on the nose. Toasted wood and creamy corn, a hint of mint, and front of the mouth flavor on the palate.
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. Its viscosity creates a smooth and pleasant finish.
