Journeyman Whiskey Reviews – A recipe for something different.

Just over a week ago, I had the good fortune of finding myself with a free Sunday afternoon in southwest Michigan.  With a quick google search, I knew exactly how I would kill that time:  a tour of the Journeyman Distillery in Three Oaks, Michigan.

While there, I picked up a few bottles that are reviewed below.  But first, a little bit about Journeyman.

Chapter 15, Part 2:

Previously, we reviewed the first iteration of of the Master’s Keep series, the 17 Year, which was released in 2015.  In 2017, Wild Turkey released the Decades edition to the Master’s Keep Line, which was a blend of 10 and 20 year bourbons.  Later that year, Wild Turkey released a “Batch 2” of Decades, along with the Master’s Keep 1894, an Australia-only release.  In 2018, Wild Turkey released Master’s Keep Revival sherry finished bourbon.   This past spring, Wild Turkey released their fifth release (fourth in the U.S.), the Master’s Keep Cornerstone, the first rye to be released under the Master’s Keep line.   Little is known of the origins of the series, or whether there is more to them than just annual special release branding.

Press information indicated that the blend consisted of 9-11 year ryes, and some suggest that much of the whiskeys originated from the Camp Nelson warehouses.  Approximately 16,000 bottles were released.   MSRP was $175.   It is non-chill filtered.
