Proof66 Notes

Johnny Drum Private Stock bourbon is named in tribute to the young boys of less-than-18 years of age who enlisted in the confederate army as drummers. Johnny Drum is said to have come to Kentucky after the war and founded a tradition of "fine sipping whiskey." This is considered a sour mash recipe" and produced in limited batches. It claims to be hand-made by a five-generation tradition of master distillers.

My 4 star rating is based on price. I was able to purchase this bourbon for $26. At that price it becomes a 4 star easily. Very rich nose of creamy Vanilla, Butterscotch, fig, and Pecan pie. Almost all of the nose carries through to the taste. Even though it is 50% ABV it does not require much dilution. (my drink is with 1 cube). Great flavors of all the nose plus creamed corn and coconut. No spiciness or Rye notes which I do favor in Bourbon. Still it is very good. Proper sweetness. Now, if I had to pay $45, it would become a 3 star quickly. There are some dusty/drying aspects, but it is a minor flaw.

$25 many places, which is insane for a 100+ proof bourbon that is aged into its teens. One of my personal favorites, this is one to try at least once. You'll likely be impressed and put it into your regular rotation.

I found this one on the sale rack for $30 and at that price point, one of the better bourbons Ive had. Surprisingly good for a little known brand. At the retail price point of $45, it is a competitor, but there are others that are as good or better, notably Bookers.
