Tincup American Whiskey
Tincup American Whiskey is made with a mashbill of rye, corn and malt, devised by Jess Graber - who's been playing around with distilling for the past 30 years and decided to make it his full time job. It's brought down to bottling strength using Colorado Rocky Mountain water. The name comes from gold miners in Colorado, who used to drink their whiskey from a tin cup - as such, the lid of Tincup American Whiskey can be used as a drinking vessel.
Nose: Big spice and fruit - apple with cinnamon, clove and toasted, spiced brioche. Rich toffee and caramel, ginger nut biscuits and sweet oatcakes with honey.
Palete: Quite light with sweet grain, cinnamon spice and a trio of apple notes - ripe, skin and Jolly Ranchers. Toffee follows, with spicy rye and toasted fruit loaf.
Finish: Cinnamon toast, tannic raisins and soft caramel sweetness.
