Johnny Drum Private Stock Review

This is a NAS expression from Kentucky Bourbon Distillers that’s bottled at 50.5% ABV.

Nose: Reminds me of a mustier, spicier Brown-Forman product. Bananas foster, freshly sawn oak, cinnamon raisin bread, honey, and black pepper.

Palate: Muddled and mostly dominated by musty, bitter oak. New/fresh grain notes imply a young age with notes of vanilla.

Finish: Fades fast with banana bread and oak notes lingering for a short period.

Rating: 78/100 – A pretty average bourbon that’s neither bad nor especially good.

Value for the money: These retail around $35+ which is generally not too bad, but I wouldn’t pay that for a bottle.
