TINCUP

Tin Cup calls itself a “blend of two great American Whiskeys.” Basically this means that they acquire high-Rye distillate from MGP Indiana, and likely single malt surplus stock from Stranahan’s (their Colorado neighbor) and blend them.

Because this is another Colorado brand, they have named it Tin Cup, after the actual tin cups miners used to use back in the day. The entire operation is the creation of distilling hobbyist and entrepreneur, Jess Garber.

The flavor is nice right up front, getting the best of the Rye and the single malt. Caramel apple tickles the nose, and minerals, cherry pie, and Rye spice appear on the palate. Solid wood notes round out the finish.

What does Tincup taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Tincup american whiskey and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
