Where To Buy Uncle Nearest 1856 Whiskey
Uncle Nearest 1856 is a blend of our premium aged whiskey. It has a caramel color with a beautiful deep golden hue. On the nose, baled hay and pumpkin seeds 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.

Long long ago, in a different world, when we still had whisky shows, I was fortunate to try a relatively new whiskey release to SA. The whiskey was the Uncle Nearest 1856 whiskey, and the taste was so unique and exciting I went out to buy a bottle. This year and still no whisky shows (yet), I decided that it is time to write about this bottling. So while dreaming of going back to meeting friends at whisky shows, I taste some whisky inspired by the shows.
