Tincup American Whiskey is the brainchild of Colorado-based Jess Graber. A distiller as a hobby for 30 years, he turned full-time in 2004. A high rye whiskey, made with a bourbon-style profile but more powerful and spicier, the cap also works as a cup.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy A

    Nose: Big spice and fruit - apple with cinnamon, clove and toasted, spiced brioche. Rich toffee and caramel, ginger nut biscuits and sweet oatcakes with honey.

    Palate: Quite light with sweet grain, cinnamon spice and a trio of apple notes - ripe, skin and Jolly Ranchers. Toffee follows, with spicy rye and toasted fruit loaf.

    Finish: Cinnamon toast, tannic raisins and soft caramel sweetness.

    Not the most complex whisky on the market but for the price it is quite good. The tincup on top is a nice extra thrown in. Doesn't feel like 84 proof, very smooth and easy drinking. Recommend to new whisky drinkers. Still enjoyable to those who have a more experienced palate

    Initially a little "hot" up front but a great finish. Was tasting others when I tried this. 2 days later tried again by itself and was pleasantly surprised...Have a new "keeper". Pour a taster, neat, and add about a tablespoon ice water...opens the flavor greatly...

    Had my first drink in Colorado last Elk season. Finally found it in Ohio. Will be keeping this in my cabinet from now on

    Tin Cup is an American whiskey that rivals the smoothest whiskeys I've had. The profile is warm and not overbearing on the tounge and leaves a smooth finish, leaving a subtle and flavorful note on the palet. I wrote this review sampling Tin Cup in the included tin cup.

    Wife bought it for me as a birthday present, knowing I love rye and bourbon...this did not disappoint. Great "whiskey", great price point, two fingers on two rocks....

    Middle of the road, but decent for the price. Worth trying for the value. Most reviews have the tasting notes spot on. Great bottle, but probably won't consider it a part of a "must have" collection.

    Very cool bottle hiding some very mediocre not-really-bourbon whiskey. Sweet up front but no depth of flavor. Reminds me more of a blended canadian than a bourbon or rye. I will finish the bottle (and amybe keep it for decoration) but will not buy it again.

    Regarding the claim of "Anonymous" that this is a high-rye bourbon from MGP -- not quite, and it isn''t bourbon at all. Tincup sourced two different bourbons from MGP (each one with a slightly different mashbill) and blended them together, but they also added some Stranahan''s Colorado Whiskey, which is distilled from 100% malted barley. With that malt-whiskey additive, this product cannot be legally labeled "bourbon," which is why the generic term "American Whiskey" is used in the name instead of "Bourbon."

    Came across Tincup in Edinburgh recently, and had to have it! Not at all disappointed......a great whiskey! Great all round flavour.

    Of course the story and the lovely pictures on the Tincup website are the usual humbug of a make-believe micro-distiller, but it''s a solid high-rye MGP bourbon and very drinkable. At the price, they should be able to afford bottling it at a slightly higher proof, though; I think that would be definitely beneficial. And I like the bottle concept.
