Tasting Notes and Technical Description:

Visual Appearance:
Holding a glass of Uncle Nearest 1856 is like staring into a well of amber and mahogany, offering a visual clue to its rich, well-aged character.

Nose (Aroma):
The olfactory profile of this whiskey is a tapestry of complexity. The immediate rush of caramel and ripe dark fruits is quickly followed by more subtle undertones of tobacco and oak. Wisps of leather and a touch of vanilla are complemented by a backdrop of gentle spices, making the nosing experience as intricate as it is inviting.

Palate (Taste):
Uncle Nearest 1856 showcases a masterful blend of age and proof. It boasts an oily, medium-to-full bodied mouthfeel that wraps the tongue in flavors of brown sugar, toasted oak, and cinnamon. The darker, more mature elements, like hints of leather and dark chocolate, bring depth and gravitas to the experience.

The finish is a long, slow descent into a warm embrace of nutmeg and clove, intertwined with a smattering of peppery notes. As it fades, it leaves a lingering trace of dried fruit and wood, provoking thoughtful contemplation and an urge for another sip.

With its 50% ABV, Uncle Nearest 1856 manages to balance power and finesse. It offers a substantial feel without a fiery bite, allowing the palate to fully engage with the cascade of flavors.

Wonderful sweet, complex bourbon

A lovely birthday gift from my bride, and worth repeats when I see it. It's big molasses up top, with some nutmeg and clove type spicy notes knocking around. Maybe some charcoal. Creamy medium body with big caramel molasses out front, followed by more of those spices. Long spicy finish. Really a nice one, a very interesting sipper.
