We received our first bottle of UNCLE NEAREST during the holiday season last year and was told, “THIS IS ONE YOU HAVE TO TRY!”  So, we did.  And again.  And again.  Then, the bottle was gone (not all in one day).  Not having seen this whiskey on the shelves at our regular spirit stock-up locations, we knew this would be an absolute MUST for our first email.

WOULD YOU BELIEVE US IF WE TOLD YOU…

• Nathan Green, AKA “Uncle Nearest” is the GODFATHER of Tennessee Whiskey and no one knows it?
• Uncle Nearest was the first African-American master distiller on record in the United States?
• Uncle Nearest was responsible for helping perfect the Lincoln County Process (use of sugar maple charcoal to filter new-make whiskey before aging)?
• UNCLE NEAREST TAUGHT JACK DANIELS HOW TO MAKE WHISKEY?

Well, it’s all true.  At the end of the day though – its JUST DAMN GOOD WHISKEY!

So How Does It Taste?

Uncle Nearest 1856 has a caramel color with a beautiful deep golden hue. Baled hay and pumpkin seeds on the nose with subtle notes of ripe stone fruit and caramel corn. Bold and spicy upfront then mellows with sweet caramel and maple, like biting into an oatmeal raisin cookie. The finish is long and rich. It lingers pleasantly sweet on the palate with notes of vanilla after the spice dissipates.

APPEARANCE - Light caramel, straw/hay, beautiful deep golden hue
NOSE - Bale of hay, dried grass, stone fruit notes of ripe peach and apricot, caramel corn and sweet maple.
PALATE - Spicy caramel up front with the proof, hints of maple then mellows with dried fruit and floral notes. Sweetness and spice reminiscent of freshly baked oatmeal raisin cookies.
FINISH - Long and rich finish, lingers pleasantly sweet on the palate, notes of vanilla.
