Whiskey of the Month

Each month we select a Whiskey of the Month and feature it on our site for the entire month. We select this based on votes from you, amount of times viewed on our site, amount of times search, etc. It remains on our site for one month and is then eligible to be chosen as our Whiskey of the Year.

April 2014

We are very pleased to announce that Tincup Whiskey has been selected as our April 2014 Whiskey of the Month. We recently reviewed Tincup Whiskey and it has been one that has received a tremendous amount of views and searches on our site. Please see our full review below.

Tuncup Whiskey

Name: Tincup American Whiskey

ABV: 42%

Proof: 84

Notes: On the nose Tincup has a delicious spicy aroma with some strong notes of cinnamon, anise, and allspice. At first sip I was greeted with warm cinnamon and pepper flavors as well as some bold rye, vanilla, and oak flavors. The mouthfeel with Tincup is noticeably thick and the spice is definitely noticeable with an excellent burn to accompany it. The finish is long, with cinnamon, cloves, and anise flavors that linger for just the right amount of time. Tincup made me tilt the glass to make sure I got every last drop and left me wanting more. The high rye content in Tincup provides some excellent spicy flavors. I tried Tincup neat and with a splash and I enjoyed it best neat. This was one of the better whiskeys I’ve had lately and it really was just a match for my tastes. Tincup retails for around $27 and it is well worth it in my opinion.

History: It is named for Tincup, an old mining town in Gunnison County, Colorado and the top of the bottle is an actual tin cup, which seems like a novelty item, but it is interesting and can be quite useful. Tincup is made in Indiana and then shipped to Colorado where it is cut with local water and bottled at the Stranahan’s plant.
