Insider knowledge: Johnny Drum Private Stock 15 Year Old whiskey is named whiskey by virtue of the fact it's from America. If distilled in Scotland the spelling would be Johnny Drum Private Stock 15 Year Old whisky, as opposed to whiskey.
As an introduction to bourbon I'm impressed (though I suspect I've been spoilt). Rich with caramel, not too much spice - quite sweet actually with vanilla in there too. The finish is short and smooth with no burn. Got a few others to try - hopefully they're all as good...
This is without a doubt my favorite bourbon. Sitting around a campfire with a fine cigar. Doesn't get any better.
Got to agree with the previous commentary. The taste of Johnny Drum's Private Stock comes from somewere WAY before. It has the taste of older, slower times in it. Sitting in a cabin, or by a campfire with this one is just a treat!
