Uncle Nearest Whiskey

Uncle Nearest 1856 Premium Whiskey is produced in Tennessee using a combination of corn and rye, and is put through the Lincoln County Process before being aged in new American oak barrels. Currently it's produced by two local distilleries as the brand's own whiskey ages. The name honours Nathan Green, who was known as Uncle Nearest to friends and family, and was the first African-American master distiller on record in the USA. It's from Uncle Nearest that a particular Jack Daniel was taught about distilling was back in the mid-1800s. Nathan 'Nearest' Green is undoubtedly a figure who was vitally important to whiskey history.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Buttery vanilla and brown sugar, mixed with soft sultana and cinnamon sweetness.

Palate Caramelised nuts, oat cookies, more brown sugar, sandalwood, authentic corn hints and a hint of cut grass.

Finish Lingering mint leaf and milk chocolate notes, with a final touch of spicy oak.

Best there is
Brought my third bottle recently, by far one of the best whisky i have tried hands down! Smooth, authentic and has nice smoke flavour. Really like this and the history of it!

Gorgeous juice. My 6th bottle
A gorgeous juice. Tennessee whiskey at its best. Lots of flavour to excite my taste buds. Think of it being a little bit like a JD single barrel but with a lot more character in my opinion. Lots of toffee and spicy overtones. Cinnamon, nutmeg, dark chocolate, dates and maple syrup. A little new leather on the nose with the usual maple syrup and vanilla offered by any quality Tennessee whiskey.

Most excellent
Actually, this is a review on 1884 93 proof small batch. A good degree of complexity, smooth, with a most excellent flavour. Puts Angel envy to shame. Will be trying the entire line.

10/10 love it.
This whiskey is incredible. Tasted it at imbibe and asked for a bottle for Xmas. The best American whiskey I’ve ever had the pleasure of.

Great pour
A lovely pour and at £50-£55 perfect. Similar processed used as with the Jack Daniel's single barrel.
I don't understand the scathing negative reviews below but I guess different strokes for different folks. A sourced whiskey and lashings of butterscotch, maple syrup and spicey notes. Probably on my 10th bottle.

Solid stuff
Good, solid Tennessee product. mellow, enjoyable, but nothing jumps out and says "buy me a lot."

A delicious hint of the American dram
I was a little wary of what was to come with this one, but the sweet notes of toffee and smooth buttery taste were worth the wait.
