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.

    I really wanted to love this whiskey because of the appeal. It packaged awesomely and I appreciate the mountains quite a bit as well. However, the nose was not very impressive although allowing it to breathe does help. I got a touch of dried red berries with brown sugar and vanilla tailing with a little pepper. It seems a little complex at first until you realize this whiskey is heavily cut. Over all it's an okay bottle with a lot more appeal than taste. It does go down smooth and the price point isn't to bad although you could be drinking Elijah Craig or Buffalo Trace for the same cost. Not something that I see myself repurchasing.

    I'm new to drinking whiskey, after trying several rye whiskies this is by far my favourite. Very smooth.

    My favorite ( bourbon ) although it does have that whiskey taste . The taste is smooth with a nice bite but goes down much smoother that most ryes . It has a nice bite/ kick to it that many bourbons do not. It is a whiskey kick with bourbon smooth finish . Best combo around at great price !

    Taste is ok nothing special, but don't drink from tin cup (then i hate the taste) is complete other taste if you drink from glass. I like the bottle design and advertising.

    I'm not a fan of bourbon. The corn liquor is just too sweet. My preference is strong, peaty scotch and rye. I've had some high end ryes that failed to live up to expectations. Tincup, for the price, is a very good rye ! I know it has zero snob appeal, and maybe that adds to the appeal for me ! But it will be a staple in my liquor cabinet.

    Love Tin Cup. I did put in freezer to keep cold. The alcohol % must not be as high, as it did freeze.

    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....
