Love it been drinking about 3 or 4 years now. Found it looking for black distilleries read up on it but was very intrigued and had to try once I found out the original creator was the one that learn Mr. Daniels, how to make his wonderful tasting whiskey. Like com'mon you have too try after discovering something like that; Jack Daniels, who doesn't love jack.

Probably the smoothest whiskey I’ve ever enjoyed in the “less than $100” range. Very rich flavoring while also reminding the taster “I’m still a Tennessee whiskey”.

Best whiskey I've ever had. More of a slow burn and almost sweet tasting.

They actually didn't have that in stock so I had to go with a replacement

About the brand
Nearest Green was the first known African-American Master Distiller. Aptly nicknamed the Godfather of Tennessee Whiskey, it was Nearest who perfected the globally recognized Lincoln County process, a unique filtering method that utilizes sugar maple charcoal, turning straight bourbon into Tennessee Whiskey. The Lincoln County Process was named after the county where Nearest lived and made whiskey. Since its launch in July 2017, Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey has become the fastest-growing independent American whiskey brand in U.S. history, as well as the most awarded American whiskey or bourbon brand of 2019. Recent awards include Double Gold at the SF World Spirits Competition, World's Best Whiskey in 2019 and 2020, Best American Whiskey at the New Orleans Bourbon Festival, and a 95 Points from the Critics Challenge.
