Raided Score: 82 Publication: Breaking Bourbon Excerpt: Tincup Rye is a whiskey that goes for drinkability above all else. For anyone that is shy about transitioning from bourbon to rye, Tincup Rye would be a great place to start. It’s a rye that still features rye’s traditional spice and heat, but offers it up in a much more mellow way.

Tincup Rye is sourced from MGP and diluted with Colorado Rocky Mountain water.
Light and effervescent. A bit of heat, some spearmint and apple.
Thin to medium mouth feel. It's definitely rye, albeit a light one. Apples, pears, clove and rye spice come together with a faint pinprick of ethanol.
Short finish. A bit hot, but some nice pepper, clove, brown sugar and a hint of apple.
Not overwhelmingly complex, but this is a fine rye. It could use some more age, but for its age, it's not overtly youthful, even if it is a little pedestrian.
