2022 Ultimate Spirits Challenge

Laws Whiskey House San Luis Valley Straight Rye Whiskey (United States), 47.5% abv, $55.00, 750 ml

Highly Recommended

Tasting Note:

Pouring a vivid amber in the glass allusion to freshly baked and buttered cornbread, crushed green apple, maple syrup, burnt thyme and rosemary rise to the nose. Fruit characters such a dried cherry, fig compote, and stewed blueberry flesh out the aromatics. Bold and brawny on the palate, explosive with uncompromising, peppery spice. The heat is quick to settle down into crispy apple which sings into and endless finish.
