Stranahan's Colorado Whisky.
We just had a bottle of this after work, a group of us that gets together quite often and tries new (and also familiar) whisky(ey)s. I think the vote was unanimous, we've never had anything like this before, and we're going to pitch in to order a case. We decided that on the spot! To me, it tasted like candy, bananas, and lumber yard. A very strange combination, but it was quite honestly the best thing I have tasted since my last bottle of Highland Park 18Yr. But in a completely different an unexpected way.
I personally was expecting something bourbon tasting, but this blew my socks off. It was so different than anything I've had before, (we mostly drink scotches and bourbons, but we do try irish, japanese, and other whiskys), but this was different in a very good way. We were all very impressed.
So my question is not really about this particular whisky, but about "different" whiskys in general. Any tips on some strange/different tasting whiskys that we might look into trying for our future meetings? We try everything from $20 bottles, to $120+ bottles. As long as it's 40% or higher, and not a clear spirit, we'll try it! (though most of us will drink clear spirits elsewhere, our group together is about whisky)
