Stranahan’s is a small distillery in Colorado that is quickly getting bigger. This past year the distillery corked barrel number 1,000, and moved from a 5,000 square foot plant to a 60,000 square foot facility.
We are not surprised. STRANAHAN’S COLORADO WHISKEY is darned good, and the public should demand plenty of it. It weighs in at 94 proof, and it isn’t corn sweet like most whiskeys made in the U.S. (Think Bourbon.) It is a 100% malted barley whiskey aged in new charred oak barrel for 2 years or more. Mmmm, the texture is oily, and the flavors of barley and barrel shine through. This is a distinct whiskey, one that you wouldn’t mistake for any other. It’s worth the price of $50 to $70 a bottle.
