    official information:

    THE JOURNEY - THE EXPLORER SERIES
    YOUR NEW GO-TO WHISK(E)Y

    The Journey Irish Whiskey reflects our passion to create unique, delicious whiskey experiences. Every stop along the way adding to the adventure.

    Aging Irish whiskey first in Virgin American oak, then recasking into American Bourbon barrels. Bringing this together with malt Irish whiskey matured in American Bourbon and finished in Jamaican Rum casks, adding tropical fruits and rum notes. A taste to return to, time and again.
    • Nose
      Butterscotch, toasted oak, dark rum notes.
    • Taste
      Sticky toffee, rum roundness perfectly balanced with malt depth.
    • Finish
      Ripe banana, molasses & vanilla.

    Sailor's Home The Journey Irish Whisky 43%, consumed March 2021. Aroma is pretty pleasant. Loads of vanilla, mango, American oak. Huge vanilla essence. I really like that simple vanilla-heavy aroma. Not my usual thing but it's so vibrant here. Taste is a little too simple though. Heavy on the American oak like a virgin oak cask whisky. Very bourbon-like. A touch too heavy on the oak but I mean this is as good as any standard bourbon on the market and perhaps a bit better than most reasonably priced bourbon. Has a typically Irish punch of rich flavour. I don't think they've put a foot wrong here in fairness. It's just slightly too oaky for my taste but otherwise this is an accomplished whisky. 3.5/84

    • Nose
      Fruity, rich and enticing. Bananas and sticky caramelised pineapple. A slight sweetness in the form of fudge, or soft brown sugar.
    • Taste
      Medium mouthfeel. Soft, and welcoming. More of that fruit from the nose, bananas and pineapple caramelised with brown sugar and served with fresh vanilla cream.
    • Finish
      Medium finish with banana and some warming wood spice.
