Tin Cup American Whiskey
|Region||United States, Colorado|
TINCUP is a blend of two great American whiskeys, each aged in #3 charred oak barrels. "High rye" bourbon, distilled and aged in Indiana, is blended with a small amount of Colorado single malt whiskey. These whiskeys are then cut with Rocky Mountain water. TINCUP is named for the Colorado mining pioneers and the tin cups from which they drank their whiskey.
This high-rye Bourbon (which oddly, doesn't say "Bourbon" on the label though it meets the basic criteria) is bold and spicy, and plays well in cocktail combinations. A big oak and vanilla mix finishes with clove, dried cherry, and a surprising, bright touch of lemon peel. It's not distilled in Colorado, but is cut with Rocky Mountain water.
