Smooth Ambler Old Scout 10 - Discontinued

    To all of our friends and fans in the Smooth Ambler family,

    Due to the rapid and unanticipated growth we’ve experienced in the last six months, the time has come to make some hard decisions about the future of our merchant-bottled bourbon business. Years of sustained and aggressive efforts to acquire the barrels necessary to replenish our bourbon inventory, and/or to do so in a way where an interruption in supply could be avoided, have yielded no favorable results. For this reason, effective immediately, we are suspending the Old Scout 99 Proof and Old Scout Ten items in our portfolio. Old Scout Single Barrel, Contradiction, and Old Scout American Whiskey will remain available.

    This fall we plan to release our 100% house-made Smooth Ambler Wheated Bourbon, a special bottling of Revelation Rum finished in Rye Casks, and more Limited Edition Old Scout Rye. Additionally, we look forward to introducing a custom Old Scout American Whiskey option in the very near future.

    Rest assured, we have healthy stores of younger sourced whiskey currently maturing in 3 rickhouses, with 4 more under construction. When that merchant-bottled whiskey comes of an age worthy of the quality and flavor you’ve come to expect from Old Scout, we will proudly make it available.

    All of us at Smooth Ambler appreciate your support - and your business – more than you know.

    The SAS Crew
