Laws Whiskey House Barrel Select Exclusive warms up Longmont

This is the time of year that makes bourbon hunters rejoice. November is the prime month for small batch, limited special releases.

Along with shorter produced seasonal offerings, this is also when unbeatable barrel select versions start to appear. These barrel select programs grant retailers an opportunity to directly purchase bourbon with customized flavor profiles for their customers. Usually only a handful of these unique, one-of-a-kind whiskey barrels are available or offered for purchase.

One such limited batch that no whiskey lover would want to miss is the new Laws Select Barrel #860.

Barrel #860, produced exclusively for Wyatt’s Wet Goods, has a floral nose of loam and honeycrisp apple. Distilled twice, with a mash bill of 60% corn, 20% wheat, 10% rye, and 10% malted barley, it was aged for three years in new American white oak barrels to bring out tastes of black tea, pear, and leather with a clean, bittersweet finish and a final ABV of 47.5%.

Available both in the standard 750 ml and 375 ml bottles this limited release makes an ideal gift for someone who wants to impress with a truly top shelf Colorado craft whiskey. Get one (or two) for your collection—while you can.
