Laws Whiskey House has released its 6-Year Bottled in Bond San Luis Valley Rye.
This new whiskey is available this month at retailers in California, Colorado, Illinois, New Jersey, New York and Texas.
This rye expression was first released after aging four years, and Laws now presents it again after two additional years of aging. San Luis Valley Rye was made from Colorado Malting Company’s San Luis Valley rye grain harvested from a single season, shaped by Laws as the sole distiller, and then aged in the company’s federally bonded rack house for six years.
“The world-class quality of our whiskey stems from the grains we get from the Cody Family Farm in Alamosa,” says Distillery Founder Al Laws. “The heirloom San Luis Valley rye varietal is a standout as it distills into a distinctive spirit that gets better every year.”
On the nose is sweet grass with honey, the distillery reports, plus notes of fennel, followed by deeper accents of sea salt, orange tea and brown sugar on the palate. It finishes with a buttery mouthfeel, accompanied by tobacco notes.
In addition to the newly released 6-Year Bottled in Bond San Luis Valley Rye, Laws Whiskey House also has a number of bonded single grain expressions, including 6-Year Bottled in Bond Four Grain Bourbon, Henry Road Bonded Malt Whiskey, Bottled in Bond Centennial Straight Wheat Whiskey and Bottled in Bond Straight Corn Whiskey.
The suggested retail price is $75 per 750-ml. bottle.
