A.D. Laws Four Grain Bourbon
This flagship whiskey is crafted from the four “American mother grains”: corn, wheat, barley, and rye. There aren’t many four grain bourbons on the market because they are difficult to make. Through a labor-intensive stepped cook process (in which individual varietals require different cooking temperatures and durations to maximize flavor), each grain varietal lends its unique characteristics to the whiskey.
- Mash Bill: 60% Corn, 20% Colorado-grown wheat, 10% Colorado-grown rye, 10% Colorado-grown barley
- Classic open air, sour mash fermentation
- Aged over three years in new, 53 gal, charred oak barrels
- Bottled at 95 Proof
- Tasting Notes: Aromas of orange blossom compliment notes of black tea, honey, and dusty pepper on the nose. Flavors of pekoe tea, orange peel, cinnamon, and vanilla custard dominate the palate. Hints of sweet tobacco and spice lead to a rich, dry finish.
