A surprising blend of fruit-forward American Whiskies in a light, approachable style.

Jess Graber had been distilling as a hobby for more than thirty years, making small batches of Whiskey and Moonshine on the side from his home in Colorado. Then a good friend bequeathed him a still, so he took up distilling full-time in 2004, founding Tincup Whiskey. The name refers to the tin cups that the miners of the old west would keep on top of the Whiskey jugs for easy drinking, and each bottle of Tincup American Whiskey comes with a small, tin shot glass capping each bottle.

Tincup American Whiskey is an interesting blend of two spirits. Most of it is a high-Rye Bourbon sourced from MGP in Indiana at 64% corn, 32% rye, and 4% malted barley. But then Jess adds a bit of his Colorado Single Malt right on top. Both spirits in the blend are aged a minimum of four years in new, #3 char American Oak. It’s a unique approach and we’re not sure anyone else is doing it that way, but you can taste that dash of Single Malt because it pulls more of the fruit notes out in the aroma.

Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 per cent rye. The grain gives rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavour. Rye was a big seller before Prohibition. After decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. George Washington distilled rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.

Tommy
Tommy,
A great, friendly whiskey.
 
Tyler
Tyler,
Nose with a hint of vanilla and caramel sweetness. Not an incredibly sharp bourbon but fantastically smooth and drinkable. Best neat without any water. Tastes of vanilla, caramel with a Salt and coffee finish.

Gotta love tin cup, spiced and cinnamon with a hint of scotch aftertaste. Sharp on the tongue but mellows quickly

The "essence" of Colorado influences this libation. Although it's relatively new, I already consider it an "American Classic".
 
Spencer
Spencer,
Nice spice. Has a slight hint of rye, but it’s not overwhelming. Very warm finish.
 
Matt
Matt,
Clean and warm from the first sip to the end of the glass. It’s everything you would want while surrounding a mountain camp fire
 
Chelsea
Chelsea,
Shockingly good, smooth taste with subtle hints of caramel.
 
Anthony
Anthony,
nose: "apple, cinnamon (but not the spicy kind), caramel, pine, lots of fresh cut lumber wood, rye, really nice balance french toast comes through after it breathes a bit, hint of raspberry jam at the rim" palate: light, sweet grain, a little apple finish: short-medium finish, sweet grain follows through, apples, rye overall: one of the nicest noses with its balance and flavors, palate has good flavors but lacks the oomph that you want with it. one of the easiest drinkers around but would be killer if they bottled at 50% or higher
