Best in Spirits & Wine: Colorado

Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey (from $50). Small-batch distilling is undergoing a boom, and this is a leading example: Barley-based (like scotch) and new-oak-aged (like bourbon), this Denver-distilled whiskey has a lemony, almost sherrylike nose and a vibrant flavor. Sold online and in 30 states.
