Tincup is a sourced whiskey from MGP/LDI in Indiana and is comprised of a high rye mash bill (64% corn, 32% rye, and 4% malted barley). It is aged in new, charred American oak for 4-5 years and is cut with Rocky Mountain water. Named for a once prominent mining town in Colorado, Tincup tops its bottles with a tin cup for you to drink from as miners did back in the day.

Tasting Notes

"The aroma of the whiskey is pleasantly filled with red fruit and a smidgen of peanut shells. You have to dig a bit deep to get the rye spice factor on the nose, but it comes through on the palate. Brown sugar and just a smidgen of barrel spices are present with a finish that is warming and pleasant. Overall, the whiskey is a solid one particularly for the price point."
