Bottled in bond is a label for an American-made distilled beverage, usually whiskey, that has been aged and bottled according to a set of legal regulations contained in the US government’s Standards of Identity for Distilled Spirits. It was put in place in 1897 as a government-backed guarantee of a product’s quality and authenticity at a time when adulteration of spirits was relatively common. To be labeled as bottled in bond or bonded:
The spirit must be the product of one distillation season by one distiller at one distillery.
It must have been aged in a federally bonded warehouse under US government supervision for at least four years and bottled at 100 (US) proof (50% alcohol by volume). The bottled product’s label must identify the distillery where it was distilled and, if different, where it was bottled. Only spirits produced in the USA may be designated as bonded.

This craft bourbon is distilled on Long Island, utilizing a high-rye mash bill (and locally grown grains) and the “sweet mash” fermentation tech-nique. The bottle’s label makes prominent references to maritime influ-ence, and there is a subtle salinity to this whiskey’s nose and finish. More noticeable is the enjoyable winter rye spice, and luscious vanilla and caramel notes.

Field & Sound has a sweet citrusy flavor with almonds, figs, and nut-meg notes. The finish is long, smooth, and spicy with a touch of choco-late and cinnamon bun. This bottle gives an Irish whiskey impression since it has high winter rye content. However, it offers a deeper char-acter. We love how it tastes neat, and we also appreciate the surprises it gives when water or ice is added.

Woodsy scents of cigars, freshly baked ginger cookies, hints of vanilla, and honey make up the nose. The oaky palate brings forth flavors of stewed stone fruit, cinnamon, allspice, tobacco and roasted grain. Spice pipes through warm finish.
