A.D. Laws Four Grain Straight Bourbon Whiskey

"We start with grain from family-owned Colorado Malting Company out of Alamosa, Colorado and corn from Whiskey Sisters Supply in Burlington, Colorado. We believe that the only way to make a great whiskey, one with balance and character is using the traditional, and far more intensive method of open-air fermentation.
The next step is aging the whiskey. Ours is aged in 53 gallon charred American White Oak barrels which we source from Independent Stave Company in southern Missouri.

Unlike distilleries in Kentucky, where the whiskey goes to sleep during the winter months, ours ages year round. That’s because our mountain climate is always active with changes in temperature and air pressure. So as our spirit ages, the magic of time, charred oak planks and high mountain air transform it into a rich, complex, spicy, Straight American four grain bourbon. A four grain Bourbon must follow all the rules of a Bourbon, but it contains all three typical flavor grains that accentuate the corn base: barley, wheat and rye. To achieve such an uncommon expression of bourbon takes skill. These four “American mother grains” are painstakingly combined in exacting ratio in our cooker coming together to create a highly complex and flavorful whiskey.  The results showcase the flavor of each grain without compromising balance.

We slowly distill our four grain sour mash to coax out the delicate spirit. Whiskey with this level of character can only be made by hand. Again, no shortcuts. Yes, Four Grain Straight Bourbon is a more difficult whiskey to make, but it is well worth it."

Tasting Notes

Look for an enticing vanilla scent with a hint of almond extract. The palate opens with vanilla and oak, then dries to dark toffee and espresso, finishing with clove and cardamom.
