America in a bottle!

Journeyman Distillery is located in a 19th century corset and buggy whip factory in Three Oaks, Michigan. EK Warren a hardcore prohibitionist in his time founded the company back in 1883 and the building where bottles are distilled, aged and bottled all under one roof hasn’t changed much. At Journeyman they focus on distilling handcrafted, organic spirits, from Gin, Vodka to all kinds of Whiskeys. As they are located on the northern edge of grain-fed American heartland it is no wonder that Whiskey from all kinds of grain is their largest product category.

Their Journeyman Featherbone Bourbon is like America in a bottle! Corn and rye from Illinois, wheat from Michigan, and barley from Wisconsin all come together to be distilled in a 19th century Michigan distillery, founded by a hardcore prohibitionist.

Organic and locally grown ingredients make Journeyman just what it wants to be, a classic Bourbon, because what is more American than Bourbon!

Ratings & Reviews
Glenn
Glenn,
Thanks for the tasting box. It will keep me from wasting $50 on a bottle of this swill. Much better stuff out there for less.
Thomas
Thomas,
Bleh. Really a nondescript drink. I would say spend a few extra bucks for a better bottle but based on the price you can actually get a better bottles for less.
James
James,
It was smooth on the pallet. Not my favorite.
Geoff
Geoff,
This one was ok. Just a notch above middle of the road.
Jon
Jon,
Well balanced bourbon
Vlad

Good bourbon
Gale

Pedestrian, not anything unique or interesting to me.
Charles
Charles,
Fair but not great
Damon
Damon,
Spicy finish, not sure that this one is for me
Gregory
Gregory,
Picked up the citrus but not so much the caramel. Strong finish though and I really liked that.
Jason
Jason,
Nice buttered croissant early on that turns to more of a corn on the cob flavor. Too much burn though, needs more aging. It's the lack of a good finish that pushes this down to 6 stars.
Duane
Duane,
Decent but not memorable
Hartley
Hartley,
Strong begining, with a strong aftertaste, not for me.
Drew
Drew,
Not too much bite. Caramel. Finish is a little spicy for me. Pretty good but not great.
Gary
Gary,
Tasting spiral is right - there's a strong relationship of taste to a hefeweisen. I like it, and may want more.
Matthew
Matthew,
Harsh alcoholic aroma, slightly sweet middle, smoky almost burnt finish.
John
John,
A little too much bite for me.
Mark
Mark,
Not for me
Scott

Pleasant bite. Nice transition of aftertastes. Complex and enjoyable.
Michael

Good Burboun.
Cody

Just terrible
Andy
Andy,
Meh, tastes like Angel's Envy. Not a huge fan.
Angela
Angela,
This was my second favorite out of the welcome box. A little rough but a good flavor.
John
John,
Spicy finish, not in my bailiwick...
Darren
Darren,
I thought this journey was over... they are pretty much there! Nothing special about this trip... caramel, molasses, walnut, edgy all over, she's been divorced a couple of times and is happy with her current relationship. She could do better!
John
John,
This did not suit my taste at all. Very harsh.
Hansen
Hansen,
surprisingly sweet n smooth finish, great aroma, not as spicy as i thought it would be
Nick
Nick,
Sweet and Spicy
Todd
Todd,
Very smooth and sweet. You'll notice it is mellow like a wheat whiskey, but unmistakably a bourbon. Easy to drink.
Jeremy
Jeremy,
A unique tasting bourbon. Not bad at all but nothing special.
Sumeet
Sumeet,
Very mellow going down and not sharp at all with a somewhat sugary aftertaste. Standard Bourbon smell. Nice caramel notes that are surprisingly delicious. Very rich flavor instead of the usual kick you get with straight Bourbon. A great bottle worth buying if you get the chance.
Sean
Sean,
Not bad. Not really my thing though.
Chris
Chris,
ALL OF IT
Rob
Rob,
Not great, not horrible. Slightly disappointed with the sample, definitely not buy a bottle for $50.
Umut
Umut,
It is "okay" to try but not in my wishlist..
John
John,
Awful. Just awful.
anonymous
anonymous,
Not a bourbon guy... but I liked it better than the others bourbons I've tried
Paul
Paul,
not great, not horrible. interesting to try, for only the reason of knowing not to buy it again.
Tim
Tim,
Good but not great. Good mixing burbon.
Steven
Steven,
Not a fan, difficult to pinpoint why. Taste a little like generic whiskey not bourbon.
George
George,
I found this one to be above others but for some reason didn't care for the taste or after taste.
Josh
Josh,
Pretty smooth. Complex flavor. The best of the tasting package.
Kevin
Kevin,
Ok for a bourbon. I probably wouldn't buy it, but I would drink it if someone offered. Came in a tasting pack. I'd place it second behind Koval.
Mike
Mike,
Nobody liked this whiskey. One participant compared it to "well whiskey" 3rd out of 3
Troy
Troy,
If this is compared to the consumer standards (Michter's, Knob Creek, etc.), this falls short. This was in a testing package with Koval and Few, and Journeyman did not live up. My tasting experience is all relative and based on rankings, personal rankings--maybe if I get several more Walmart Bourbons, this would increase in stature, but for top-line bottles that Flaviar offers, this is the bottom of the barrel.
Michael
Michael,
Very smooth
Jason
Jason,
A quite nice, easy to drink bourbon. Slightly sharp, but a nice mellow flavour. A bit sweet, but not too much.
Blake
Blake,
Very smooth with little bite. Sweet notes up front and a peppery finish
Eric
Eric,
Very smooth with a little peppery taste to it. Very easy to drink. Not bold at all for those who like a deep flavor. I liked it very much.
Todd
Todd,
This was good, but didn't blow me away.
Steve
Steve,
Slice and malt. Limited in description, just not my favorite.
Shawn
Shawn,
Love it.
Antti
Antti,
Is a very good off-dry sipper, with a gentle birth, a short life & quick death; probably an excellent intro Bourbon.
Eric
Eric,
Grassy and I like the finish
lloyd
lloyd,
I like it smooth til it gets where its going bam.
Joseph
Joseph,
Initial of caramel and brown sugar. Mid of corn, smoke and spice. Long finish of heat, smoke, slight honey and floral.
Jedediah
Jedediah,
Didn't seem to habe good rich flavor.
Chris
Chris,
This is a great example of a Michigan wheat whiskey. It has a very dry grassy flavor on the front end and finishes with a sweet caramel butterscotch flavor one the backend.
Michael
Michael,
Nasty
Mark
Mark,
tastes like it was aged in an old leather boot
Matt
Matt,
It was just ok
Michael
Michael,
First off I'm a Scotch drinker and not a big fan of ANY Bourbon but I do enjoy a good Gin & Tonic during the summer months. That being said I guess it was okay for a Bourbon did have a little bite to it but not overpowering
Levi
Levi,
A little harsh but im a novice so i may be missing something.
Michael
Michael,
Not a Fan.. way to Harsh and Spicy for my taste..
Christopher
Christopher,
kind of harsh and young
Carl
Carl,
Too spicy and rye forward. It may be good if that's your thing, but it's not mine.
Brad
Brad,
Good whiskey. Maybe just does finish as smooth as it could
Wayland
Wayland,
Not a bourbon fan so my rating is from a drinkable and smooth slide down. Can not give any taste notes because I don't like the taste and can not be objective 😎
Captain
Captain,
Too spicy kind of peppery. Not smooth harsh
James
James,
Has a very good spice flavor!
Brady
Brady,
This bourbon takes off with the spice! The spicy smell hits you instantly and a warm spicy flavor follows. A hint of honey joins in at the end. This is a true American bourbon start to finish.
Eric
Eric,
Smoooooooooooth and liquid happiness.
Joseph
Joseph,
From the citrus smelling nose I expected this to taste sweeter, but this has bite. Almost like a spicy rye. Once it mellows on the back of your tongue the more subtle sweet notes become apparent. Long finish. You can taste it for a while. I think it was s very spicy up front and it needs one or two ice cubes. Was going to grade it lower but the finish is excellent.
Rob
Rob,
It's ok. A little grassy. Perfect with a mixer.
Jennifer
Jennifer,
Did not care for this
Adam
Adam,
Very smooth. Caramel-spice-vanilla. 👌🏼
Tim
Tim,
Sting vanilla all throughout. Very smooth and easy to drink. I don't get much besides the powerful vanilla on the nose, taste, and finish.
Jeff
Jeff,
Loved it. Very Smooth!
Wayne
Wayne,
I Liked it!
Nick
Nick,
Caramel, but not enough. It's almost there.
Ryan
Ryan,
Underwhelming and lacking in complexity. Tastes very young.
Diego
Diego,
It was ok
Jimi
Jimi,
Smooth with a pleasant caramel finish. Happy to have a bottle from my home state of Michigan.
Kenneth
Kenneth,
Nice flavor - good back palette!
James
James,
Smooth. Very light nose, Carmel and citrus on the tongue. It is very easy to drink, I like complex whiskeys but this is simple and smooth where if poor it to house guests who don't like as intense of a flavor profile. Will add to the bar.
Peter
Peter,
Nicely smooth Of the three in my tasting box this was my favorite. Good mouth feel. Hints of fruit and tobacco. I'll be adding this to my personal bar soon.
Jonathan
Jonathan,
Smoother than I thought after I smelled it. Sipped it straight and is enjoyable. The carmel and rye were more prominent with hint of citrus.
George
George,
Caramel is evident during tasting, nice long finish, slightly sweet.
Gerard
Gerard,
Somelittle spiced with hints of pepper, a little bitter towards the end but starts smooth
Tracey
Tracey,
Liked best of the 3, smoother
Patrick

Did not like this
Brian
Brian,
Very smooth
George
George,
I work out of state so I was looking forward to getting into my tasting box when I got the chance to come home and I did. I tried the Korval and it was really tasty. I'm not a mixer so I did it straight from the shot glass. 1 I threw back and the other I sipped. Excellent. I'm gone again for about another month but I look forward to testing the others and will make my decision on which I will order. If the other two are as good as the Korval, it would not be a stretch for me to order one of each.
Charles
Charles,
I enjoyed the Koval. I could definitely taste the white oak. It had a nice smoothness to it. not too girly and not to harsh. I would consider buying more of this, but you're not selling any. Didn't care for the Journeyman. The after taste was bad. will try the Few next weekend
William
William,
Unimpressive. Maybe I'm crazy but I thought I tasted rubbing alcohol!
Kirt
Kirt,
It's was ok
Joshua
Joshua,
For Myself, I found it Sophisticatedly Smooth yet still has a Tad Bit of Kick. Two Thumbs Up
Gilbert
Gilbert,
Very Very Smooth, Loved it
Benjamin
Benjamin,
Good, but a little too rough. More like an Irish than a bourbon.
Justin
Justin,
I'm sure this flavor may appeal to some, but I did not enjoy this bourbon at all.
Chris
Chris,
Overwhelming Bourbon smell, which is not bad until u taste, couldn't hardly keep it in my mouth it burnt so bad, burnt going down also!!
Matthew
Matthew,
Decent but not outstanding
Bruce
Bruce,
Least favorite of the the three that we sampled tonight. Was not impressed with the aroma at first but grew on us. First taste wasn't impressed but second and third was better. Added Ice, chilled and a little diluted it was better. Not our favorite from the night.
Kurosh
Kurosh,
So so so dry. There is something so very strange in the flavor. Not a pleasant experience for me. Could be an issue with the batch. Hopefully.
David
David,
Few was a good sipping bourbon.
Jeff
Jeff,
eh
Casey
Casey,
Went for the smell and got a wif of spray paint. You can tell the difference between a longer aged bourbon and a short aged bourbon. This bourbon isn't aged long enough to compete with some of the better bourbons out there. Found out it is only aged a maximum of 6 months. I feel the bottle is over priced for a short lived bourbon.
Michael
Michael,
Darker in color. Smells sweet. Higher alcohol content so needs water. Very sweet in taste.
Brian
Brian,
It has a great sweetness that doesn't overwhelm its other flavors
Betty
Betty,
Floral and easy drinking. Great small batch whiskey
Barry
Barry,
Little peppery and a vanilla and banana with medium finish. Pretty smooth. I'd probably buy a bottle.
William
William,
The flavors of this were a little strong and the finish held on to you for a while
Kevin
Kevin,
Smooth
Eric
Eric,
Thin on the palate. The flavor profile is pretty accurate but is lacking.
Cindi
Cindi,
A bit spicier than the other two. Still really good and has a sweet taste. But spicier. We liked sample A best.
Steve
Steve,
Smooth but packs a lot of flavor.
Edward
Edward,
Easily my favorite Q4 taster. Honey sweet and citrus on Nose. Not sure I picked up any of the Earthy tones. Crisp on the backend, but not sharp.
