  • Excerpt: Then, it’s apple cider vinegar, deep-fried mushrooms, and Nutella. Fried pie dough and hints of chocolate appear before a medium finish that has a hint of toffee.

  • Publication: The Whiskey Wash
  • Excerpt: With a smooth caramelly flavor to satisfy drinkers with a sweet tooth, it also packs a decent punch for those looking for something a bit stronger and spicier. Although it gets a bit spicier than I’d like, I still admire how Uncle Nearest manages to retain a variety of flavor elements in both its sweetest and harshest moments.

  • Excerpt: The taste is spicy with a black pepper note on top of honey and maple with a hint of oak in the background. The finish is long with a nice honey sweetness and lingering spices.

  • Excerpt: If you’re interested in giving the Uncle Nearest brand a try, I would personally suggest you start with the 1856 before moving onto the higher priced 1820 release. Although I’d say you could find more appropriately price alternatives for both labels, these are still unique options and worth a try.

  • Excerpt: The progression of aromas and texture is crazy good. There is a peak with dark flavors and at the very end the incline of spices is just gorgeous.

  • Excerpt: There's a strong drying feel to the sip, which sizzles with ginger and cinnamon right into the toasty vanilla and almond finish.

  • Excerpt: The story behind the label sets the bar pretty high for the juice inside this bottle, but I have to admit this is a pretty good start.
