Stranahan's Blue Peak
American Single Malt
Stranahan's // Colorado, USA
Stranahan's Blue Peak is named after a 13,000 foot peak in Aspen, Colorado. The Colorado single malt is first aged for 4 years in 53-gallon new, charred American oak (char #3) in the high altitude of its Denver warehouses. Then the whiskey is further aged in foeders (large oak barrels) which are made from new American oak. Here the whiskey mingles with other single malt for several months before a portion is removed. The foeders are never emptied creating a solera system. This is a permanent addition to the portfolio and is available as of October 2020.
