Tincup American Whiskey is the brainchild of Colorado-based Jess Graber. A distiller as a hobby for 30 years, he turned full-time in 2004. A high rye whiskey, made with a bourbon-style profile but more powerful and spicier, the cap also works as a cup.
Refreshing and light, this whiskey is a welcome addition to the Bourbon selection. It’s a great introduction for those who are new to the Bourbon world (90-proof) and would like to taste a light-bodied, spiced and non-sweet whiskey that can be sipped from a shot glass. A great American drink!
Contains caramel, vanilla, cinnamon, cherry, caramel, cinnamon and brown sugar. A smooth and spicy flavor with a touch of sweetness.A fruity nose with hints of cherry & vanilla.
If there are barrels used in the making of this whiskey, I couldn’t find them in the Tincup Website.
The bottle is black and designed to hold a shot glass. It is a little heavy so make sure you secure it or it will spill over in transport.
I find that bottles can be a bit plain and so Tincup’s has a little creative twist. The picture is of Tincup using his bow and arrow to get a shot out of a bottle of Tincup whiskey. So creative!
The Tincup American Whiskey offers a good, easy to drink version of a Whiskey Kentucky also make, so if you’re looking to upgrade your collection, I would recommend you look at that particular Whiskey.
I’m a big fan of the Tincup American Whiskey, I’m not a Bourbon drinker, but I love to sip on a whiskey from time to time. If you are a Bourbon fan, the Tincup Bourbon will be good companion for you.
I recommend you check out Tincup and taste some whiskey, keep your money and taste some bourbon.
