Journeyman Distillery continues our unwavering quest of experimentation, to create the best tasting whiskeys ever, with the release of Journeyman Corsets, Whips and Whiskey Cask strength, aged in a second use Bourbon County Stout from Goose Island Beer Company. We wanted to combine the best of both worlds, to create a taste like no other.
In collaboration with Goose Island Beer Company, we started with Corsets Whips and Whiskey which was aged 2 years in 15 gallon barrels and finished it in a Goose Island Bourbon County Stout barrel for 8 months. The combination of the CWW and the Stout create nuanced layers of flavor and the mellowness of the wheat lends itself to adapting the flavors of the beer. The perfect marriage between beer and whiskey is real.
The whiskey is an Autumnal Burnt Ochre in color, with a noticeable sweetness up front. On the nose there are hints of toasted marshmallow and mocha. As the flavor develops traces of overcooked toffee, almond, and dark cherry come through, with a hint of clove on the finish.
Available only at Journeyman’s Three Oaks, MI distillery on November 27th. This limited batch will sell out quickly, so road trip for pickup or call and purchase a bottle to reserve, for when you can pick it up. Corsets, Whips and Whiskey, Cask strength, will retail at $94.99.
