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.

    This whiskey is too good to cut with coke. An ice cube maybe, but I prefer it neat. This is a spirit that serves as a benchmark for craft whiskeys. Enjoy.

    A very EZ drinking whiskey, smooth and fresh tasting. I'd buy another after I finish this one.

    Oh, I like this! Couldn't find my Single Barrell Jim Beam, and wanted to try something new. I made a good decision. Lots of flavors. Very complex, and I probably won't be able to describe it correctly till the bottle is half gone. Tincup is outstanding. Will get this again.

    Its is my favorite right now. Very smooth. I get the up-front caramel, and the after notes for a while I couldn't put my figure on. I knew the flavor. Until tonight. It's almost a liquorice flavor. I've been looking for something I can do room temp shots, or pour it over some ice and still enjoy. Lots of whiskies, for me, are one or the other. Been drinking this the last couple months. I will say I've had some variance from bottles; one bottle might be a little harsher than the previous. But I will take this over many of the other bourbons or whiskeys out right now. I really want to get my hands on some 10 year!

    Found by chance. Intrigued by tin cup on bottle top. Exquisitely smooth sweet and spicey over 2 cubes of ice. Wait 5 mins for ice to cool and blend to get perfect taste. Love to drink in a tin cup like the old days.

    Great whiskey, large notes of caramel, soft cinnamon flavor, and a nice settling toffee flavor on the way down, very smooth.

    Very good to drink neat. But also isnt a sin if you mix it. Really shivers me timbers.

    I have been drinking Tin Cup for many years, I have noticed a taste difference. Seems to be much harsher taste than previously. Not as smooth as it was. Please go back to original formula. More corn less rye!!

    I'll admit I fell victim to a clever ad campaign, but there are worse fates. This is a smooth and flavorful whiskey, with enough bourbon character to satisfy most drinkers. Not as full bodied as the better Kentucky bourbons, but that seems to be a choice rather than a shortcoming. Worth a try for sure.

    Pairs very well with Coca Cola. When taken straight is very spicy and straight forward. A better sipping whiskey than say Jack Daniels but not on a scotch level. Overall very flavorful but not my favorite for drinking straight. The price is a bonus. Great for mixing and very much worth trying.

    Good flavor. Has the after burn of a good straight rye. I've tried Scotches that I loved. Ryes withthe right amount of spice. This combines them both. Will buy again.

    At 45 i've tried my share of whiskey from around the world. This is actually one of the nicer ones. Tastes spicy on the toung but smooth and warming on the way down. No nasty after taste and in all a pleasurable experience. Only 4 stars as there is room for improvement.
