Stranahan's Diamond Peak (old recipe)
American Single Malt
Stranahan's Whiskey // Colorado, USA
Stranahan’s was founded in 2004 by Jess Graber and George Stranahan, owner of Flying Dog Brewery. This Colorado American Single Malt Whiskey is made entirely of barley. For the Diamond Peak bottling, select barrels are chosen after four years in char #3 barrels for the batch. The whiskey is then brought down to 94 proof with Colorado Rocky Mountain spring water. Note: In 2019, Stranahan's revamped the recipe for this whiskey using a solera process. Check your label: if the solera process is discussed you have the new recipe.
American Single MaltMade in the USA from 100% malted barley. Distilled at one distillery. Matured in oak casks no larger than 700L. Distilled to no higher than 160 proof (80% ABV).

"The Diamond Peak will remind you of all the desserts you cram in your mouth during the holidays. You quickly get aromas of taffy, peppermint, and powdered sugar. The light malt you taste up front is readily overtaken by spice cakes, caramel, and almond extract. Even the smoke is sweet. A nice dram for indulgence without the guilt afterwards."
