Laws Whiskey House, announces the 2022 releases of their Bottled in Bond Four Grain Bourbon.
To qualify as a Bottled in Bond whiskey, the expression must be made by one distillery in a single season, must be bottled at 100 proof (50% abv) and must be aged at least four years in a federally bonded warehouse.
The Laws team released their first Bonded Four Grain Bourbon in 2016. This successful foray into Bonded whiskey also marked the first Bonded bourbon in the state of Colorado and one of the first Bonded Four Grain Bourbons in the country.
Six years later, the brand has raised the bar on their craft as they prepare to release batch #6 of their Bonded Four Grain Bourbon and batch #3 of their Bonded San Luis Valley Rye.
The 2022 Bonded Releases
Bottled in Bond 8yr Four Grain Straight Bourbon Whiskey – Batch #6
Laws’ sixth release of their Bonded Four Grain Bourbon is one of the oldest bourbons to be released from the distillery and is composed of two separate batches. One batch is from the spring season of 2013, marked with batch code #6-S, and the other is from the fall season of the same year, marked with batch code #6-F.

- Batch #6-F of the Bonded Four Grain was distilled in the fall of 2013 and features 9 barrels with an average maturation time of 8 years and 2 months
- Expect aromas of orange blossom, toffee, and apricot jam on the nose. On the tongue, those notes melt to brown butter and dates, leaving a dry finish with hints of sandalwood.
