    Colorado Whiskey

    I got the chance to visit Binnys earlier this week. I picked up a bottle of Colorado Whiskey. It looks like a young whiskey, internet search shows that it seems popular and liked, but do not know much else about it. I will be trying it soon as I have some other bottles that I really want to open first. The company that makes it is stranahams.com

    Any comments or info would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Scott

    Re: Colorado Whiskey

    I'm currently in Denver and I saw a bunch of this on the shelf in a liquor store. I'm curious, but I'll wait to hear waht others think before I shell out the money. I also saw a blackberry-flavored whiskey for sale made somewhere in Colorado. Can't remember then name. I passed.

    Run a search on "stranahans" ("n" not "m") and you'll find a bit more information. It has been discussed a few times here and a few people here tried it at Whiskey Fest Chicago.

    We did indeed try it at WhiskeyFest. It's whiskey. It's young. It's decent enough. It's expensive. Those are my simple recollections. I'd try it at a bar and pass on the bottle purchase.

    Re: Colorado Whiskey

    It's decent enough stuff, light and sort of bourbon like, but nothing spectacular. I'll be reviewing it along with three other American single malts on my blog next Wednesday (every Wednesday is Whiskey Wednesday).

    I liked it a lot. It is an american single malt that should be outstanding once it ages out to 10 years or so.

    Re: Colorado Whiskey

    Tastes more like a clean, non-peated scotch to me, with lots of fresh young wood in the nose.

    The Flying Dog brewery in Denver makes the all barley mash, then sends it next door to the Stranahan distillery.

    I personally thought it was great, and couldn't leave Denver without a bottle. Echoing what AVB said, it'll be interesting to see how it ages, provided Stranahans was that forward thinking and has some surplus shored up in barrels.

    Re: Colorado Whiskey

    I was thinking about buying a bottle when I'm in Denver next week. What's the price?

    Around $50 per bottle. You can now pick it up in Southern California as well. I believe they carry it at Hi-Times Wines in Costa Mesa...pretty convenient for you.
