Laws Whiskey House recently unveiled the second release of its Bonded Henry Road Straight Malt Whiskey, made from Colorado heirloom malted barley.
This limited season release comes out of the award-winning, Denver-based distillery. This single malt meets the standards of the Bottled in Bond Act of 1897 and used only the grain of a single harvest season, was made by just one distiller at a single distillery, was aged for at least four years in a federal, government-bonded warehouse. It was cut and bottled at 100 proof.
The Bonded Henry Road Straight Malt Whiskey was crafted using 100% heirloom malted barley mash bills and features a combination of malted two-row barley and a Munich malt from the Cody Family Farm in Colorado. The whiskey is cooked, fermented and distilled on-grain. This process imparts what’s described by the brand as a signature nuttiness to the distillate which is accentuated with layered complexity from new 53-gallon, #3 char American white oak barrels filled in the summer of 2016.
After five years of maturation, these eight barrels yielded just under 2,400 750ml bottles.
Bonded Henry Road Straight Malt Whiskey is available in key markets across the country starting this month for a suggested retail price of $74.99.
