Uncle Nearest 1856 Whiskey

Aug 22, 2017

Category: Vices

Typically, when we think of Tennessee whiskey we’re immediately reminded of Jack Daniel’s. Interestingly enough, the Lincoln County Process – a necessary prerequisite for any Tennessee Whiskey – was imparted upon Mr. Daniel by a former slave known as Nearest Green. Remembered as “Uncle Nearest” by his friends and family, he is now credited with developing the Jack Daniel’s recipe – later becoming the first African American master distiller on record.

There’s no doubt then, that this version of the original 1856 whiskey is one delectable dram. It pours a beautiful caramel color with a golden hue and compliments the nose with rich scents of baled hay, pumpkin seeds, stone fruit and caramel corn. Upon that first encounter, your palate is confronted by a bold and spicy flavor profile that quickly mellows into sweet caramel and maple. What’s left is a slightly sweet finish complete with notes of oaky vanilla after the spices dissipate leaving a tasteful and satisfying ending to each sip.
