Notes of Scent & Flavor

  • Nose

    Light brown sugar and honeyed granola. Herbaceous and crisp with oriental spice aroma. Slight truffle notes and pleasing currants.
  • Palate

    Apricots and a mix of soft clove warm the mouth. Toasted frame and oak with a splash of ginger.
  • Finish

     Dry and enormous tannins but holds the finish on a ginger note.

“The Most Awarded American Whiskey in 2019”


Origins

Nathan “Nearest” Green, affectionately nicknamed Uncle Nearest by his friends and family in Lynchburg, Tennessee, was the first African-American master distiller on record. Nearest is credited with perfecting the globally recognized Lincoln County Process, which is the only thing that distinguishes Kentucky Bourbon from Tennessee Whiskey (other than geography). This unique filtering of bourbon through sugar maple charcoal was named after the county where Nearest lived and made whiskey. This unique filtration removes impurities while not adding anything to the already perfect whiskey, making it also a straight bourbon whiskey.
