TINCUP is a bold and spicy bourbon cut with pure Rocky Mountain water from distilling legend Jess Graber. The whiskey gets its powerful flavor from a mash profile very high in rye, a choice Graber made because he felt most American Whiskey was too mellow. Up front TINCUP has notes of pepper, cinnamon and orange, which give way to a smoother vanilla middle and a short, clean finish. Graber recommends you drink it neat or with one ice cube, but this is a complex whiskey that could be at home in any classic cocktail. Named for a gold-rush era mining town in the mountains of Colorado, TINCUP was created in honor of the state's first drinkers, the miners who settled in the mountains and drank their whiskey from tin cups. The bottle's cap is a twist-off metal cup, paying further homage to the whiskey's name and its origins. Highly recommended for sharing with friends around a warm fire.
