Leopold Brothers Bottled in Bond 5yr Straight Bourbon

Item # 43106 750mL

Todd & Scott Leopold, the brothers behind this eponymous label, set out a vision in 1999 when they founded their distillery, that had the potential to make them one of the most important new spirit makers in a century in America. That reality is firmly taking hold with the first release of their Bonded Bourbon. Making things in a style closer to how they would have been in the original late 19th Century golden era of American Whiskey, wild indigenous yeasts help ferment in open top vats of sour mashed corn (64%), floor malted barley (21%) and rye (15%). The spirit enters barrel at a lower entry proof making for an entirely different kind of complexity when bottled both aromatically and on the palate. This is special whiskey. On a recent tasting we were reminded of notes of apples cooked in butter, cinnamon bread, whole cloves, toasted pecans, floral hops and smoked cedar.

Staff Pick Notes

Few distilleries have caught my attention as much as Leopold Brothers. At a staff training, we had the pleasure of learning the magic and science that goes into every bottle they produce directly from Todd Leopold. And believe me, this is not your run of the mill Bourbon! Brothers Todd & Scott Leopold have brought a unique attention to detail to every step of the whiskey making process. Some of these include floor malting their own Colorado grown grains on site, selecting unique yeast strains, and utilizing an industry low barrel entry proof of 100 (50% abv). All of these decisions factor greatly into the final product, an incredible Bourbon that is not only Bottled in Bond, but also a true barrel proof experience at only 50% abv! And if you enjoy this Bourbon, there's a high chance you'll also love their Rye!
