Member Reviews and Ratings of Uncle Nearest 1884 Premium Small Batch Whiskey
Pretty smooth. A little on the sweet side. Won't buy again. If offered in a bar or party definitely wouldn't turn down.
Excellent. On the lighter side. Great especially at this price.
Excellent, goes down smooth, maybe too smooth. Easy to drink, great whiskey for yourself or to share with others.
Only a slightly sweet aroma and taste. Very smooth and one I’ll definitely buy again. It’s not my “go-to” but, I’ll reach past others for this one.
I liked it. Pretty smooth.
Very smooth. Nice to have a glass alone or with 7up or a coke!
Delicious! Loved it! New favorite!
Not too young for a bourbon so smoothness is expected. Well executed, tannins on point, char expressing through caramelized oak flavor. I love it.
Didn’t quite live up to expectations. A little spicier than anticipated, but still good.
Great taste and smooth
Well done. Pretty much right on with the flavor profile. Smooth, with notes of vanilla, butter and citrus. Just a little burn on the end. Good stuff!
Nice caramel or butterscotch flavors with some cinnamon spiciness. The sweetness us nor overdone. Compares well with other whiskeys and bourbons.
Classic Tennessee whiskey taste, like Jack Daniels. I’m a fan!
I enjoyed reading about the history. Very smooth. Works great in an Old Fashion. The bitters, cherry and orange with the butter, honey and vanilla flavors of the whiskey blend well.
the best American whiskey I've tried. I was curious due to the history, and while it's quite a bit sweeter than my taste it is very nice. I've found it makes by far the best Manhattans ever!
Very smooth, maybe a little too much for my taste.
Really enjoyed the taste. It was a pleasure to the last drop!
Excellent! Very smooth with smoky oak, not peat and caramel. Highly aromatic though I am not able to name the flavors. I tried it on ice first, then neat, and went back to on the rocks as my favorite. A few more tastings and that's where I'll be. This is smooth but definitely strong alcohol. Only 80 proof?!
I haven't tasted it yet, I got it for the historical meaning...I don't drink much, I buy and save unique things like this to show others...But as far as buying Uncle Nearest 1884 I would suggest it to anybody who likes a really well crafted whiskey...
Love the history of the whisky. The flavors were there. Very smooth for a young whisky. Definitely something I will consider buying again.
This is my new go-to bourbon. It was smooth, yet robust, neat. It was like drinking a well-blended mix of rye and bourbon, my two favorite whiskies.
I think it is excellent for the price. I found it to be quite smooth. I did tend to add an ice cube (small one) due to the temperature outside. I’m not a fancy taster, so “it was really good.”
Very smooth, a little light for my personal taste.
Wonderful to sip neat. Somewhere between the spiciness of rye and the sweetness of bourbon. It goes down smooth with a slow, mellow burn that doesn't bite.
Very much like a Jack Daniel's. You can see how this recipe inspired Jack Daniels.
Buttery, smooth, delicious. I have to take my time with this or it will be gone way too soon.
It is an outstanding, elegant, Tennessee Whiskey that has an aromatic birth; while an elegant life leads to a crisp & dry death of medium length with hints of apple juice, pineapple, cherry & toasted wood.
Bought this bottle for my older brother. he is a Jack Daniels fanatic I think he now he is an uncle nearest Fan
Very nice, smooth and I get a little cherry in the flavor. I really love the history behind the brand.
Loved it❤️❤️❤️!!Smooth balanced and enjoyable.
I find it nicely abrasive on the front end but incredibly smooth in mouth feel and on the back end
It's distinct. Not a lot of caramel like others. Cherry in the flavor. Sweet but not syrupy. Very nice.
Great taste, good finish. Very smooth.
I just found my new favorite
Great taste and finish
Nice, smooth. Good flavor
I love it taste great
Such a good whiskey with an awesome story behind it. Delicious and very reasonably priced. I’ve been told it’s smokier than the 1856 but still very enjoyable.
Smooth taste, Great neat or with A big ice cube and Cigar
Great depth with a smoothness to the backside. Never tried before, one of my favorites now.
Ever since I read that Frank Sinatra was a Jack Daniels guy I have always tried hard to make it my favorite. I drank a lot of it. The story of Uncle Nearest really had a big impact on me. I ordered it immediately. I didn’t expect much, just wanted the bottle on my shelf to share the story. This whiskey really surprised me. It had a familiar Tennessee taste but it’s something different. I loved how buttery and vanilla it was. I absolutely love it. I’ll be watching out for the Premium and others from Uncle Nearest. I am very impressed!!
I'm not a fan of Dickell because of the stale fruit-loops aftertaste, but this is different. It's the same company, and that fruity taste is there, but in some way, in Uncle Nearest, they have left the afteburn clean... it's not for everyone, and it's definitely a "Tennessee-style" bourbon (hardly right to call it bourbon, I think, but it's a good change and has an interesting palate.
Loved it! Very smooth and great flavor profile.
I’m a bit confused by all the positive reviews. I bought this and was so excited to try it as I had heard such great things. Bought with a number of other items and some friends and I decided to do a blind taste test. This came in dead last for all of us! Tastes very young with high corn content. I’m a Buffalo Trace flavor profile kinda guy and this missed the mark...BADLY! Haven’t been this disappointed by a new bottle in a LONG time. Ok with mixers but that’s about it.
A very enjoyable and smooth whiskey.
Great whiskey from the creator of Kentucky whiskey!
Very delicious, smooth whiskey. It lacks complexity in my opinion, but the taste is very good and drinks very well neat or over ice. I think i was just expecting to taste more notes or flavors at the beginning, middle, or end of the sip
So a friend recommended this whiskey, love the story of how it came to be! The color of the whiskey is beautiful light amber, the nose is light and beautiful, easy whisky smoothness, sweet oaky finish. Sometimes we (my wife and I) pick up notes of peanuts. So weird! Oh the bottle is awesome too!
Very easy drinking, interesting flavors drawn from the 7 years or so. A good proof, I'll make it my staple TN whiskey for sure.
I should not review for fear you guys will buy it all out before my reorder. I do love this whiskey. Great for summer months since it is a little sweet on the lips and smooth. Has a pear tone, light oak but not smokey.
Very light oak scent from the bottle. I used a large ice cube with it. Fruity in front, has a bite in the end but very smooth. It wasn't as sweet to me as I expected given the prior reviews but it's what I imagined a whiskey would be like. Definitely a keeper in my home bar.
This was surprising with a nearly over-pearing nose and pear being the dominant center of the flavor spiral. It is a tad sweet on the front but it is eminently drinkable, smooth and complex. Great finish too.
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.
One of the best bottles I have ever purchased!!
... 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
love it for the price
Buy this whiskey. It is very smooth and a great sipper. I prefer is neat. One of my favorites.
On top of that, Uncle Nearest is sending masks to frontline workers at no cost. Great whiskey and even greater company.
Thank you Uncle Nearest!
Smooth and tasty! One of my top 10.
Apple juice with a dry finish. Approachable without a deep burn.
Buttery and woody, it's good but not a necessity
Truly a great Tennessee whisky. I prefer the 1856 more due to its greater complexity.
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.
Very nice flavor. A little harsh, but smooths out with the second glass. All in all, a good whiskey with great flavor.
Outstanding whisky!! Extremely smooth with a long finish. Tennessee Whisky at its best!
