Stranahan's Colorado Small Batch Whiskey 750ml (1 bottle limit)

SKU #1033433

If high-quality, unique whiskies are your bag, don't put off getting your hands on a bottle of Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey; Colorado's first small batch, hand-crafted whiskey that uses top-notch ingredients. The barley for Stranahan's is grown in the Northern Rockies and the water comes from the State's pure mountain streams. The distillery contracts with neighboring Flying Dog Brewery for its four-barley fermented mash, which then goes through a unique filtration program. Twice distilled in a custom Vendome Copper Co. pot still, aged in charred American white oak whiskey barrels for a minimum of two years. They make three barrels of whiskey a week (that's more like five minutes of production for a mass-producing distillery). The resulting dram is sweet, with fruit and spice notes and is very smooth. Delish! 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This 100% malted barley spent two years in new charred oak and boasts an amber color, sweet caramel scent with a touch of coconut and juicy apple, and relatively dry flavors. What sets this whiskey apart is the remarkable deep cocoa and pronounced coffee finish and velvety, creamy mouthfeel, reminiscent of ice cream and root beer foam. An alcohol sting cuts through, but should temper over ice nicely." (03/11)

I have an affinity for the odd-ones. The 100% barley mash gives rise to hot and rich nose full of honey citrus and roast coffee with delicate notes of tobacco, vanilla and orange on the palate with a hot and lingering dark roasted coffee finish in the throat. Pour two fingers of the stuff as a digestif or a lazy mid-day dram. Though I'd recommend having it straight on your first pass, you can cut through some of the heat by adding a few cubes of ice which will also bring out the smokier characteristics of the malted barley. Versatile and delicious; probably my favorite whiskey under $100...always have a bottle on hand!

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
