Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey tells BourbonBlog.com they are releasing a Caribbean Rum Cask finish. Their American single malt is crafted from 5-year-old barrels and finished in Caribbean rum casks that enliven the liquid. This release is at Distillery Exclusive and only available at the Denver distillery for an MSRP: $69.99 for a 750ml bottle.
The brand tells BourbonBlog.com that they will introduce a series of Distillery Exclusives that highlight the distillery’s ongoing dedication to innovating the American single malt category with unique finishing techniques, resulting in whiskey with a “highly complex flavor profile.”
Like all Stranahan’s expressions, the Caribbean Rum Cask is distilled from 100% malted barley and handmade in small batches at Stranahan’s distillery.

Owen Martin, head distiller at Stranahan’s, tells us, “The Caribbean Rum Cask is the latest in our series of Distillery Exclusives that showcase our ongoing innovation within the growing American single malt category. Up to three years of aging in Caribbean rum barrels results in a whiskey that bursts with lively, tropical flavor.”
