Stranahan's Rocky Mountain Sherry Cask Single Malt Whiskey
Our Oloroso Sherry barrels are procured from the Andalusia region of southwestern Spain, known to many oenophiles as the Sherry Triangle and one of the world’s most coveted wine regions. The barrels have aged sherry wine for over 40 years, leaving behind a depth of flavor soaked into the ancient oak staves. The resulting whiskey bursts with rich flavors of vanilla, caramel, dark chocolate and oak. The use of sherry casks in cask finishing has been a popular practice throughout Europe for centuries and Stranahan’s Sherry Cask is an American approach to this tradition.
Nose : Over-ripe cherry, sweet apples, raisins, almonds, leather and fresh-cut hay.
Palate : Honey, Montmorency cherries, blackcurrant, and fig, with a nutty brine and walnut characteristics.
Finish : Buttery caramel, whipped creme, brown sugar and smoked cayenne.
Full-bodied as the fire that bore it, STRANAHAN’S® Whiskey glowed amber from the start. When volunteer firefighter Jess Graber responded to a neighbor’s barn fire down the road, he never imagined any good could come of it. The barn he made an effort to save belonged to George Stranahan, long-time spirits connoisseur. The two discovered a shared passion for the Colorado outdoors and a good pour of fine whiskey. And so, STRANAHAN’S Rocky Mountain Single Malt Whiskey was born.
Starting out in 2004 as the state’s first legal distillery, STRANAHAN’S forged the path for craft distilling in Colorado. Today, STRANAHAN’S maintains the same quality and standards for each batch, and is made in our Denver, Colorado distillery.
