While I'm not an expert... what would you like to know?

I don't know what you are trying to point me to. I get a:
"Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms." message from your link and any searches I've done on Stranahans or Colorado Whiskey.

For those of you who read my newsletter, in the craft distilling article the reference to a craft distiller who distills whiskey from a wash acquired from a brewer is about Stranahan's. They are affiliated with a brewery and use its un-hopped beer as the base for their whiskey. Stranahan's recently became available here in Chicago. I haven't tried it yet.

This may not be much help much, as it's only hearsay. I have some friends in CO That I met and normally see in Scotland. They have a bottle for me, if we can ever get together on this side of the pond. I trust their judgment. It could be described as a Scottish single malt, distilled in the USA and aged in the high Rockies. I, too, am anxious to try it.

Make that an unpeated single malt.

So this is not American whiskey in the truest sense?

My interest decreased somewhat. Oh well, wish him good luck, all the same.

I plan on trying it soon. I have a very good friend who distills Altius Vodka here in Colorado Springs. He is friends with the Stranahan's. I was waiting on him to get me a bottle, but it looks like I'll being springing for the $50.00. I have heard very good things about it however. I may just go over to the bar and see it the serve it. It is by the way labeled as Colorado Whiskey

Chuck in my latest trip to Oregon, I learned that McMenamin's is doing the same (or at least very close to it) with one of their beers that they are using to make whiskey. They do have plans, I was told, to age some of this for several years and release an actual age stated whiskey.

Stopped into Brendans Pub (St. Matthewe/LuVl) some months ago and the bright yellow label caught my eye. Spent 17 years in the 'Centennial State' so I felt obligated to try it.
Tasted like a work in progress. It's not a bourbon, not a scotch.
Reminded me of an old Seagram's 7 (and that wasn't a good memory). Not sure where they're going with this one.
