Silky four-grain golf-inspired Midwestern Whiskey.

An industrious man named E.K. Warren built an innovative factory in Three Oaks, Michigan in 1883 (no original Oaks left, though). He started making two things that are still immensely popular: buggy whips and corsets. His revolutionized the manufacturing process and made his village a global phenomenon. About 120 years later, a lad named Bill Welter travelled to Scotland to learn about golf but found a lifelong friend instead: Greg Ramsay. They fell in love with Scotch Whisky and spent some time in Greg's home country, Tasmania, to learn everything one can about the precious Spirit. In 2010, Bill and Chuck Welter bought the middle section of E.K. Warren's old factory, renovated the place and established the Journeyman Distillery. The very next year, distilling started and now, it's high time we tasted the Whiskey born by Lake Michigan.

Silver Cross Four Grain is a gold medalist (San Francisco World Spirits Competition) comprised of four types of grain (equal parts of rye, corn, wheat and barley, all organic). Even though the label evokes images of Crusaders, the Silver Cross was actually a medal that was awarded at the annual golf tournament The British Open. It symbolizes friendship, camaraderie, spirited (ha, get it?) competition, and also the founder's love for golf. This expression is 90 proof and is a perfect companion for those collegial gatherings after a friendly match.

Interesting experiment with a ...

Interesting experiment with a 4 grain mashbill ( 25%corn, 25%wheat, 25%rye and 25%barley). There is sharp green pine/fir/spruce note in both the nose a palate. Moderately sweet, somewhat thin mouth feel, it feels like and evokes a crisp winter or autumn day in the forested mountains. I like the green aspect but others may hate it as it dominates and almost lends a synthetic feel as it is out of place in a traditional bourbon. I'm giving it an 8 due to the uniqueness of the product.

Smells vaguely like cream cheese frosting, tastes like warm tap water someone said the word 'vanilla' near with a white pepper spike finish.

It isn't offensive or bad, but it ain't good either.
