    Stranahans is back in Georgia

    Should anyone be interested. Just saw it on the shelf yesterday. Presumably going back into other states as well.

    I saw it in NC last week so it's showing up. I passed.

    Cool. Good to see it getting out of CO again.

    In SC also. I noticed the label is different but assume the whiskey is the same.

    The label is different (I think it changed a bit almost immediately after the change of ownership) as is the little metal cup but in my opinion so is the whiskey. I have a bottle of the presale whiskey as well as a newer one and had a chance to try a couple of other even earlier bottles. I think they went from a 4 barley mashbill blend to a 3 barley mashbill (although i can't confirm that) and they now make their own distillers beer where it used to be made by a local brewer. It is a bit subtle but to me the difference is evident when tried side by side in a blind taste test. I seem to prefer the "original formula".

    I'm glad I have several bottles of the old stuff. A local liquor store ordered it for a customer several years ago and he died so it sat on the shelf. I picked them up a about $40 a pop.

    If you decide to pick up a new one and have any of the older stuff for comparison I would be curious to know what you think. A blind test is the best of course. Running about $55 here of the new ones I have seen so $40 was a good price!

    I wish they could/would put some of this back to get some age on it. The times I've tried I enjoyed it quite a bit for what it was, but felt some more time to develop would do it well.

    Not likely to see that happen anytime soon except perhaps for a few limited release bottles. With the re-expansion into other states they are likely pumping it out as fast as they can!
