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
COLD BREW CUT
AGE: 6 YR 2 MO | CASK TYPE: AMERICAN WHITE OAK
The Cold Brew Cut experimental spent 6 years and 2 months in virgin oak, once harvested from the barrel, instead of being cut to proof using Eldorado Spring Water, it was cut with cold brew coffee from local roaster, Copper Door Coffee.
Sweet and nutty on the nose, this coffee cut whiskey comes in strong with chocolate ganache and pink peppercorn and finishes with sweet marzipan.
AGE: 8 YR 6 MO | CASK TYPE: EX BOURBON/MAPLE
Starting with a 5-year base in new oak, the whiskey was then transferred to an ex-bourbon barrel that previously held maple syrup and was finished for an additional 3 years.
This maple cask has notes of sweet toffee on the nose with a bold flavor of caramelized nuttiness, ending with a tart cranberry and ginger finish.
EVENT DATE: 5/20/23
At our 8th annual Cask Thief event, our guests enjoy whiskey tastings directly from barrels that were hand-selected by our team of distillers, available only during the event. These whiskeys were finished in barrels from the depths of our rackhouse that we sourced from around the world and were used in the production of wine, brandy, bourbon, craft beer, and others.
Exquisite tastings directly from six whiskey barrels placed throughout the distillery.
