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.

Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.

Roy,
I'm not big on Bourbon, but this is enjoyable. You can pick out the malt coming and going. Plenty flavours to look for. Pleased I bought this.

Liam,
Not complex or interesting...very meh. Numbs the tongue immediately. Sweet and dry. Dirty socks? Not great with Coke either I found out!

Ira,
I was looking for something new to try and saw this at ABC Fine Wine for $16.99 for 375ml. For that price, who can go wrong? This is a simple but lovely whiskey. Loads of cinnamon and brown sugar and a nice long finish.

Solid everyday on the budget sipper. Great in cocktails. Light vanilla notes, light caramel, medium burn finish.

Skip,
Such a great bottle for every day sipping - it's the perfect price point for something that is very competitive with far more expensive whiskeys.

This is my go to budget whiskey, spicy and a great supper or mixer, I never go on a camping trip without a bottle.

Daniel,
I'm a new whiskey drinker and of all that I've tried this is so far not the greatest. To me it seems to lack depth of flavour. It is super smooth and has some spiciness on the palette. It would probably be a good mixer for a cocktail

Good for mixing. A bit too spicy and nutty for sipping neat. A splash of water took a bit of the edge off.
 
Mary
Mary,
Smells very sweet on the nose, but has a delightful spicy sweetness on the palate. An easy daily sipper and my favorite so far.

Blake
Blake,
A buddy and I both agreed this was some rough whiskey. High rye profile, but not in a desirable sense. After a glass I recommended he use it for cleaning sap off his car rather than drinking with friends.

Isaac,
Good tasting, however I wasn’t amazed with flavor. Had kind of a watered down taste to me, but again for the price it’s worth it. (Even comes with a tin shot glass)
