Exciting Whiskey with extraordinary history.
 
The story of Tennessee Whiskey is a story about a Lynchburg preacher/farmer who taught a young Jack Daniel how to run the stills. Well, that’s the old story. Now, after years of research, the mythology became even cooler. The man who actually trained Jack to be the future Whiskey behemoth, was the preacher’s slave, Nathan Green, a.k.a. Uncle Nearest. Fawn Weaver was so inspired by the new found tale of the first African-American distiller, she bought the legendary farm and built a distillery nearby. Uncle Nearest celebrates the forgotten legacy of Nathan Green and offers true Tennessee Whiskey.
 
Local grains, a special yeast strain, double distillation, the exclusive Lincoln County process (triple charcoal mellowing), and new American oak barrels write a fantastic tale of the bright Whiskey future, founded on one of the most exciting origin stories. Nathan Green was a trailblazer and a forgotten hero – a hero we must not forget again. Uncle Nearest 1856 Premium Whiskey is a rich and smooth Spirit with a sweet nose and a caramel palate with just the right amount of spices.

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.

fruiti notes of flavor shine thru with subtle maple.
 
Derek
Derek,
Just pass. I get really weird notes from this. Notes whiskey shouldn't have. Just say no.

Daniel
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.

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.

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.

Christopher
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.
