Colorado Brewer’s Cask
AGE: 8 YRS | CASK TYPE: AMERICAN OAK #3 CHAR
After the initial maturation of 6-8 years, we lent local breweries our barrels for them to age their own beers, and they returned them to us to re-fill with Stranahan’s for a range of 1 to 3 more years.
Nose: Biscotti, cocoa powder & gingerbread
Palate: Round & coating mouthfeel, malt balls, coffee cake & toffee
Finish: Balanced heat that accompanies dry, crisp maltiness familiar in dark beers.
Red Wine Cask
AGE: 7 YR | CASK TYPE: AMERICAN OAK #3 CHAR
The Red Wine Cask is an American Single Malt crafted from a marriage of seven year-old whiskeys, with a minimum of three years spent in casks that previously held Bordeaux and Pinot Noir.
Aromas of tarragon, lemon fresca, banana bread, and vanilla wafer evolve into hints of white peach juice, peach cobbler, and orange creamsicle on the palate. The finish is round and fluffy like marshmallow, before a late linger of red wine dryness re-primes the palate superbly.
Only available at the Stranahan’s, and you can taste each of the current expressions in our Distiller’s Experimental Guided Whiskey Tasting
COUPE VOL. 1
AGE: 8 YR 2 MO | CASK TYPE: EUROPEAN WINE CASK & AMERICAN OAK
Once the primary maturation process was complete, the single malt was spread to a variety of European wine casks for finishing, before being combined and returned to used Stranahans American oak.
Deep & rich on the nose with hints of wet sand and caramel covered raisins. On the palate, concord grapes, plum and fig newtons. Finishing off with dry baked fruits and sparkling wine.
NOIR & BRANCA
AGE: 7 YRS | CASK TYPE: FRENCH PINOT NOIR & WHITE PORT
Starting with a Stranahans base in new American oak, the whiskey was transferred to ex-Pinot Noir & White Port barrels to finish for 4 years before being blended together.
The port wine comes in strong on the nose, reminiscent of a cool coastal breeze. Rich & sturdy on the palate like reduced cooking wine and pastel mints. A viscous linger leaves hints of crème de menthe.
EMPIRE STATE BOURBON
AGE: 10 YR 7 MO | CASK TYPE: EX NY BOURBON
Starting with a primary aging of 8 years, this whiskey was transferred to a bourbon cask for an additional 2 years.
Sauna rocks, bacon grease and lemon balm fuse together on the nose of this mature sipper. A friendly palate of vanilla and caramel with a finish of coffee grounds and Honey Nut Cheerios.
