Journeyman Distillery Last Feather, 45%

Price: $50 Issue: Winter 2020 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton




An enigmatic and quiet whiskey, whose subtle complexity begs for your attention. The nose is minty and fresh with pine, balanced by earthy clay, matcha, green almonds, milk chocolate, and spice. Dry and a bit earthy on the palate, which has texture without heaviness; mint, walnuts, dark fruit, cola, root beer, and black pepper create a savory-sweet effect, leading into the well-paced finish.
