A powerful old-school Rye Whiskey with a rich mouth feel and classic flavor profile done right.

Three Oaks, Michigan is a small town of about fifteen-hundred at the southwestern-most tip of the state. If it were a mile or two further south it would be in Indiana. Journeyman Distillery is located there and bills itself as a working-man’s shop. The building was a buggy whip and corset manufacturer back in the 1800s, and it is this history that influences the names of their twenty-two products — from Featherbone Bourbon to Buggy Whip Wheat and beyond.

George Washington has a special place in the history of America and the world. He had the opportunity to seize power twice, but put his country first — famously saying, "I am not a king." Well, not only was he the first President of the United States, he was also a distiller of Rye Whiskey. So it seems totally fitting that the good folks at Journeyman Distillery would pay homage to the man by crafting a Rye Whiskey in his honor. Not a King Rye is a limited edition Whiskey released each year on President’s Day. This powerful and tasty dram is 60% organic rye and 40% organic corn and 100% awesome at 45% ABV.

Smartass Corner:
After Napoleon emerged victorious during the French Revolution he seized power — making himself dictator and trying to conquer all of Europe. Afterward, he is said to have lamented, "They wanted me to be another Washington."

To be honest, I did not care for the neck pour but I am glad I came back for another dram. The leather in the nose along with the oak and some baked good sweetness gives way to a hearty rye spice and a decently long finish. Definitely some unique characteristics but very much some tradition rye components.
