Contradiction blends two whiskeys. One is a"wheater", or wheated Bourbon and the other is a Bourbon made with rye. We are very proud of our knack for bringing you great spirits we hand-make and excellent spirits we hand-select; Contradiction is the opportunity to enjoy in a single sip, the convergence of those two very different efforts. A 80/20 (roughly) blend of 9 year Old Scout and 2.5 year old Yearling Bourbon aged 90 days in the same barrels, dropped to 100 proof and bottled.

"This deep amber colored Bourbon is aromatically gentle, with soft wisps of grains. In the mouth the power comes to life with bold spice, vanilla, and freshly split wood notes. Flavors of cigar box perfume the palate on the long finish."

"Generously oaked, with toasty oak drive delivering brown spices and earthy dried apple on the nose. The palate pours sweet and rich, with warm corn porridge underscored with dark molasses and maple flavors. There is a lot to like here, from the boiled peanuts to a spiced palate, as the young, house-made whiskey imparts its verve to the 9 year old Indiana bourbon."
"This is a very complex, multi-layered whiskey. It starts sweet and moves into spicy before finishing with a nice, classic caramel corn and vanilla finish." - Uproxx
