Stranahan's 10 year old Mountain Angel Colorado (Batch 001), 47.3%

Price: $130 Issue: Winter 2020 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

The nose is reticent and doesn't yield much, but candied lemon peel, strawberry, grape soda, and jasmine perfume emerge. It's super sweet and fruity on the palate, like a bag of Skittles; guava, pineapple, mango, kiwi, and cantaloupe shine, with a length of oak to temper the effusive brightness. The finish is fairly short, and overall a bit more muted than the palate suggests.
