Uncle Nearest 1856 Premium Aged Whiskey
Lance,
Like this, more spice than the Uncle Nearest 1884. Offers a little more bite on the tongue at the finish but still superbly smooth.

Alex,
An excellent choice and a fine Tennessee whisky! The easy to enjoy & not to harsh profile makes it a great choice for any drinker. The butter & honey are smooth from nose to finish.

Andrew,
As with many premium brands, the story is what sparked my interest. Named in honor of the Black man that taught Jack Daniel how to craft his spirits, this company is reclaiming whitewashed American history. The good news is that this smooth spirit is very drinkable, and well worth the attention. The finish pushes you to pour another, and another. This is one of the only bottles that I keep multiples in stock of. Great any night of the week, and even some mornings. ;)

Andrew,
... just opened to find a treasure, 1856 was high on the sweets, this batch is starkly different. Warm notes, smooth throughout, little sweetness on finish. Overall one of my favorites. Could become a staple in my bar

Isak,
Hands down one of the best whiskeys I’ve ever had. Huge flavors of caramel, butter, and toffee swirl around each other in a grand ballet and the finish lingers yet goes down smooth.

Joe,
Impressive story behind this Bourbon. To have the original recipe passed on for generations is a great statement for this Bourbon. Great taste, and can be drank either neat or with a sphere or block.

Andreous,
This is not a drink for the newbie. If you are not a Jack fan please pass on this bottle. It has a LOT of heat and very little tasting notes. It burns with little flavor, for me. I will go back and try more since I own the bottle but I will not buy it again.

Derek,
Just pass. I get really weird notes from this. Notes whiskey shouldn't have. Just say no.

Apple juice with a dry finish. Approachable without a deep burn.

Pretty good
Uncle Nearest 1856 Premium Aged Whiskey
Daniel,
Sweet, cherry, caramel, mineral, banana, and a charred / metallic finish. And yep walnut definitely makes sense after seeing the flavor profile. A little bit too much burn in the middle and end for me. It’s good, but not $60 good. I’d rather have a bottle of Bookers bourbon at this price point which is why I’m giving this a 7. Nothing extraordinary about this one for me, but definitely drinkable.

Duane,
Truly a great Tennessee whisky. I prefer the 1856 more due to its greater complexity.

Duane,
Truly Tennessee's Finest. Now Dearest to my heart and a permanent place on my bar. Smooth, caramel apple, with a spice finish.

Nichole,
I don't love it like I was hoping for. I enjoyed their 1844 and found this locally but just not a favorite or one I enjoy sipping neat. Grassy notes on the nose and a bit of charcoal. Palate wasn't anything great. I've got a bottle so going to keep giving it a chance to warm up to me.

Wendel,
Smooth and sweet. Can drink over a cube of ice or with a splash of ginger ale! It’s a staple on my home bar and the story behind the brand is a great conversation starter.

A little sweeter than I normally go for but I love the history and story of the company. Makes for a great night cap.

All in all great whiskey, smooth from nose to finish,
Uncle Nearest 1884 Premium Small Batch Whiskey
Mark,
Very nice flavor. A little harsh, but smooths out with the second glass. All in all, a good whiskey with great flavor.

Koroun,
I loved this one and loved the historical significance as well. It was pleasing to the palate from the first sip and paired well with several of my cigars.

I love this whiskey! A new favorite.
Uncle Nearest 1856 Premium Aged Whiskey
Christopher,
Nose: Brown sugar. Black walnut shells start coming through strongly. A touch of honey, or maybe molasses. Brandied cherries underneath. Palate: Black walnut, heavily. Some baking spice on the back of my tongue. Some bitterness, probably from that black walnut flavor. Molasses underneath. Some of that oak (this is a 10+ year old whiskey, after all) around the sides of my mouth. The instantiation is tanniny. Finish: The black walnut shells linger, pleasantly, at the tip of my tongue and roof of my mouth.
