One of the world's first cultivated grains, hordeum, or wild barley grass, grew from an agricultural staple to ultimately reach its pinnacle in whiskey making. A.D. Laws Hordeum Straight Barley Whiskey is a nod to this ancestral grain and its singularity. A atypical on-grain, sour mash style, coupled with Colorado mountain barley, imparts a unique character to this whiskey. Locally roasted artisan malts lend to a nutty flavor, while hints of stewed fruit compliment its sweet malt backbone.
