PROCESS & PROFILE
Diamond Peak’s second unique release highlights flavors that transcend traditional whiskey. Using a marriage of 5-8 year Stranahan’s, the liquid spends up to just over 2 years in casks that previously held the finest extra añejo tequila, the prized Reserva de Familia® blended from the José Cuervo special family reserves. The resulting whiskey is a burst of brightness that’s herbal, peppery, and has just the right amount of agave sweetness.
DISTILLATION: Distilled from 100% malted barley and handmade in small batches at the Stranahan’s distillery, Colorado’s first legal distillery since Prohibition
MATURATION: A marriage of five to eight-year-old Stranahan’s American Single Malt Whiskey, initially aged in virgin American Oak Barrels with #3 char.
FINISH: Upon completion of the aging process, the whiskey is transferred into extra añejo tequila casks, where the liquid is finished for up to a little over 2 years. The resulting taste is both rich as it is complex, producing a mix of flavors and an ultra-smooth taste.
CUT: Cut to proof with pristine Rocky Mountain water from Eldorado Springs and non-chill filtered.
NOSE: Peppery and floral, softly layered with butterscotch.
PALATE: Herbal, salted caramel with a mellow oak backbone.
FINISH: Creamy malt fades into light agave sugar.
Stranahan’s Diamond Peak Extra Añejo Tequila Cask is available for purchase now only at our Denver distillery and Colorado retailers. Stay tuned for updates on wider availability.
Stranahan’s Irish Cask
AGE: 7+ YR | CASK TYPE: BUSHMILLS IRISH SINGLE MALT
Diamond Peak’s first unique release highlights flavors that transcend geography. After being aged in American oak barrels for 4 years, the liquid is finished in Bushmills Irish single malt barrels for more than 3 years, providing a unique and complex profile that would make an Irishman blush.
Butterscotch, cereal sweetness, and well-oiled leather aromas evolve into earthy grain flavors with toffee accents on the palate. The buttery palate leads into a light, but long, finish.
Stranahan’s first Diamond Peak release (Bushmills Single Malt Cask) is currently available for purchase on our online store.
