A.D. Laws Four Grain Bourbon Cognac Cask Finish. Photo ©2020, Mark Gillespie/CaskStrength Media.Cognac casks make an interesting addition to Bourbon flavors, as this whiskey from the Laws Whiskey House in Denver shows. The cognac influence is evident on the nose with notes of fresh berries and red grapes, along with a hint of sawdust, honey, vanilla, and soft spices. The taste is spicy, peppery, and intense with black pepper and chili powder notes that fade to reveal hints of raspberries and strawberries, red grapes, and a hint of brown sugar. The finish is long, fruity, and slightly astringent with hints of spice. Very nice! (March, 2020)
