  • Intro:

    Billed as the number one American Single Malt whiskey in the United States, Stranahan's Original is distilled in Colorado from 100% malted barley and bottled at 94 proof. A notable cornerstone of Stranahan's marketing is that any dilution that occurs is done with Rocky Mountain Water - let's see if it makes a splash. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Sweet honey, rising bread, buttery bisquits, toffee and slivered almonds. Plenty going on, none of it youthful or weird. I'm into it.

  • Taste:

    Thin to medium mouthfeel. Sweet cream, brown sugar, a touch of sesame seed, sourdough, creme brulee and bread pudding.

  • Finish:

    Medium finish, toasted marshmallows, caramel, creme brulee, a touch of minerality and a nice, oaky, quality.

  • Overall:

    Overall, this is impressive for an entry level, NAS single malt and Stranahan's knows how to nail the profile and deliver something that's rock solid.

  • Score:
