Laws does two distillations in two seperate stills.  The first distillation is through a 2,000 gallon stripping still.  The second distillation, the spirit run is distilled in their 500 gallon full copper still. Both are pot stills designed for Laws by Vendome


Barrel manufacturer: Independent Stave Company

Barrel size: 53 gallon


Proof coming off the still: around 125


Barrel entry proof: 105-110


Bottling proof: 116.4


Nose 👃: Caramel. Baking spices. Black walnut. Pear.


Palate 👅: Black licorice. Honey. Tangerine. Vanilla pudding. Ginger.


Finish 🏁: Cinnamon.  Brown sugar. Orange zest.  Raisin. Tobacco. Very long in length.


This might be the easiest-sipping whiskey I’ve experienced at 116 proof.  You’ll feel the proof soon, but you don’t feel it going down.


Overall, I find this to be a rather unique bourbon profile… and I like it.  If you ever get bored with the traditional bourbon profile… this is worth a hard look.  It’s quality and unique.


In general, I love the production transparency voluntarily given by Laws… it’s refreshing!
