Uncle Nearest 1856 Premium Aged Whiskey

Price: £55 (US$72)

A tasting of super-premium Tennessee whiskeys saw a Master medal go to Uncle Nearest 1856 Premium Aged Whiskey.

The judges enjoyed the “pleasant sweetness and nuttiness” on the nose, leading to “raisins, almond, marzipan and a bit of cherry”. One member of the panel described the overall product as “complex and robust”.

The expression is made using a combination of corn and rye, and is put through the Lincoln County Process before being aged in new American oak barrels.
