Sailor’s Home, The Journey, 43%, Blended Irish Whiskey

Irish Whiskey is experiencing unprecedented growth with new bottles & brands appearing all the time.

One that caught my eye was Sailor’s Home – a Limerick based brand recalling the city’s rich maritime connections.

Welcome home! c/othewhiskeynut

It also led me down memory lane.

Some of my formative years were spent sailing the seven seas crewing ocean going vessels.

The ship was your home for the duration of the voyage – yet it was constantly on a journey – a never ending journey for me – seeking out new whiskeys to explore.

Beautifully presented in an attractive bottle with lovely detailed touches. The Journey has been matured in virgin oak, ex-bourbon & the seafarers favourite – rum barrels.

A dark caramel front sweeps over the fresh & engaging first nosing.

Waves of warmth embrace the palate in a silky coating.

Prickly peppery spice, bright vanillas & subtle suggestions of rum funk set a course to the finish leaving a dry yet lip smacking experience.

It’s a journey I’d happily explore again!

I raise a glass of Sailor’s Home to all the seafarers that didn’t return.

In particular those aboard MV Derbyshire – a newer & larger bulk carrier sister ship to the one I happened to be on half way across the Atlantic when news of the tragedy came through.

May all your journeys lead you home.
