Private Stock Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 750ml
According to the bottle’s label, Johnny Drum served as a drummer boy in the year 1861 during the Confederate (Civil) War. At the end of the war, legend has it Johnny returned home to his native Kentucky, where he staked claim among a beautiful spring. Johnny learned the importance of finding a way to convert his excess corn crop into a profitable item, rather than allowing it to go to waste. As the story goes, it wasn’t long before Johnny’s determination produced an exceptional bourbon whiskey. Today, Johnny Drum is bottled in three forms (though only two are reflected on Willett’s website as of this writing) - Johnny Drum Private Stock, Johnny Drum Black Label, and Johnny Drum Green Label (not reflected). Owned by Willett, but bottled under the Johnny Drum Distilling Company name, it is a sourced bourbon of undisclosed origin.

About the brand
Johnny Drum Private Stock was awarded a "double gold medal" at the 2010 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and the green and black labels each received a silver medal at the 2012 event.[1] However, that was a different Private Stock than is being sold in 2016. The current Private Stock has no age statement (NAS), whereas the one that won the "double gold medal" back in 2010 had a 15-year age statement. Food critic Morgan Murphy said "There's a rye pepper to Johnny, with vanilla-sweet overtones and a hint of cigar." Legend has it that a teen named Johnny Drum left home in Kentucky to fight in the Civil War. However, he was too young to be allowed to take up arms, but a battalion took him on as a drummer boy. After he returned home to Kentucky, he worked corn and, ultimately, started distilling. The spirit in this bottle is the legacy of that original recipe.

Nut fragile and vanilla on the button. Somewhat sharp toward the front with a light mouthfeel. Nearly appears as though cotton candy with a scarcely there feel. It's not cloying like cotton treats however it's sweet. Traces of nuts caramel and some wood zest. The zestiness waits alongside some severe chocolate harsh pecans. This is an incredible pour and a take at $30. 3/29/17 The 15-year (!!!). What. A. Nose. Profound caramel cinnamon graham wafer. Incredible nose. Smooth for the confirmation. A weird home grown component on the sense of taste. Gets done with cowhide. Sense of taste doesn't follow the nose sadly yet this will have fans. 2 out of 5. 5/9/18

Great consumer. Overwhelming cinnamon with some barrel and vanilla. Somewhat hot functions admirably with two or three drops of water.

Second go around. I feel like the body might be somewhat heavier and the legs only a smidgen more slow in the glass than I saw previously. Nose was again somewhat dusty and astringent from the outset yet opening up I do feel like I acknowledge more fruits and calfskin. There might be a tad of prepared crusty fruit-filled treat behind it too. The sense of taste certainly has some snappy pleasantness that is washed away with consume and a little toffee. Two drops of water plans something for realize maple walnut flapjacks however doesnt do a lot to change the bed. I truly needed to like this one. I have high plans to discover a wheated whiskey that isnt such an undeniable irritation to chase down. Unfortunately I dont think this is the one.
