The Best New Whiskeys to Drink This January
New Year, new you, new whiskey from Barrell, Booker’s, Chicken Cock and more (plus one intriguing dry option)
Welcome back to our monthly guide to all things whisk(e)y. This month, we catch up on some last-minute releases from 2022 and profile a new dry option for brown spirits fans who might be observing Dry January.
Journeyman Corsets, Whips and Whiskey
The name’s certainly eye-catching, but this single-grain, cask-strength wheat whiskey from the Michigan-based distillery also has accolades: It recently won three major honors at the 2022 ASCOT Awards (including Whiskey of the Year). A 100% wheat whiskey at 58.5% ABV, this limited-edition expression — which earned its name because Journeyman is located in a former 1800s corset and buggy whip factory — is bright, soft and toffee sweet, with a wonderful jammy fruit note and a bit of spice on the finish.
