The 1856 is Uncle Nearest’s inaugural whiskey; a premium blend bottled at 100 proof. It has a caramel color with a beautiful deep golden hue. On the nose, pumpkin seeds with subtle notes of 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.
