Laws Whiskey House 6 year old San Luis Valley Bottled in Bond Straight Rye (Batch 1), 50%

Price: $75 Issue: Fall 2020 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

An unconventional flavor profile with a nose featuring fresh mint and chocolate in abundance, along with secondary notes of candle wax tinged with a bit of alcohol heat. It's the chocolate that sticks around through the palate, as gentle sweetness is quickly swept up in warming spices and bitter Mexican chocolate, supported by flavors of nutty, honeyed malt. Enjoyable and highly original.
