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.

    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.

    This is a very good whiskey. Admittedly, I am new to the whiskey rodeo. But I am learning. This whiskey if very smooth straight... i.e. no mix. I like it that way. But sometimes I cut it with Coke. Either way you cannot go wrong. Do not hesitate. Buy this. On top of that the bottle is way cool. A six-sided bottle with a tin shot glass/cup on top. It is embossed on the sides. Beautiful bottle. I prefer whiskeys with cork stoppers which this has. There is no way I am recyling this bottle. It is a work of art on top of the product being very good at this price point. Time for another sip.

    I am a Kentuckian and a bourbon snob... I decided to give this non-Kentucky whiskey a try because of clever packaging and ad campaign... What a pleasant surprise.. complex.. smooth.. Delicious! Made from Hoosier "rye bourbon".. fantastic flavor .. try it straight out of the freezer in the metal shot glass provided.. also frozen... I was not disappointed.. will be buying this again..

    On top of a mountain is the last place I want to be when I am enjoying 80 proof spirits. However, I found TinCup to be a pleasure. I'll probably stick with old faithful (Jim Beam) but will buy TinCup when I want to impress someone. Nice bourbon.

    This whiskey smells wonderfully sweet. Unfortunately, there isn't much sweetness when it hits the tongue. Instead it's a very spicy whiskey with too much rye flavour for my liking. But if you like rye whiskey, Tincup is probably worth buying.

    Outstanding in old fashioneds and on the rocks. Lost in a Kentucky mule. Great value.

    I like it in old fashioneds. The higher rye content cuts the typical sweetness of bourbon. Old fashions tend to be sweet because of the added sugar and some Bourbons are just too sweet. This is perfect. It is also nice on ice.

    A great whiskey, fruity and sweet. It's perhaps slightly better than many similar priced bottles but at the same time it's far from the greatest. Well worth checking out. The actual tin cup is a nice touch
