Osopher Single Malt Whisky

Stranahan’s “The Osopher” is the oldest whiskey the distillery has ever bottled. It stays true to George Stranahan’s passion for creativity and Stranahan’s commitment to innovative American Single Malt Whiskey. It begins its aging journey for 11 years at the distillery before maturing for a further four months in casks used to age Flying Dog’s Road Dog Porter. The flavor profile consists of the following:

Nose: Coffee cake. Roasty malt mixes with toffee and barrel roe

Taste: Dark chocolate caramel, sherry-soaked plums and a dash of mature hops

Finish: Bread pudding and barley wine temper to a dry finish

Osopher Imperial Road Dog Porter

The limited edition Flying Dog beer created for The Osopher Project is an imperial version of Road Dog Porter, an early creation of the brewery. Road Dog was one of the first beers to be packaged in original artwork by internationally renowned artist Ralph Steadman; a version of this label was used to create The Osophers for both labels as well as NFT. Flying Dog’s Imperial Road Dog Porter was aged in 10-year-old Stranahan’s whiskey casks before bottling. The results are:

  • Aroma: Dark chocolate and caramel dominate the aroma, followed by cocoa butter and maple ending with light notes of nutty vanilla.
  • Taste: A velvety explosion of chocolate, vanilla cream, toasted pecans, toffee and maple balanced with hints of caramel, spice and tobacco from the whisky.

Stranahan’s The Osopher has a 47.3% ABV and Flying Dog’s The Osopher has a 12% ABV.

About Ralph Steadman

When George Stranahan first founded Flying Dog Brewery just outside of Aspen, Hunter S Thompson immediately suggested that Ralph Steadman produce the labels for their first beer, Road Dog. Flying Dog still uses Ralph’s work on their beer bottles today, so it was a natural fit to use the first artwork on Osopher Whisky. Steadman is best known for his collaborations with Hunter S Thompson including Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and The Curse of Lono. He has illustrated literary classics such as Alice in Wonderland and Treasure Island, and written his own books including I Leonardo, Freud and The Big I Am. Other collaborations include Pyschogeography with Will Self and the Gonzovation Trilogy about endangered animals with Ceri Levy. Ralph has been a trailblazer, recently starting to stamp his art as NFTs at at steadmanart.tez and is enjoying exploring the new possibilities that Web 3 offers.
