BOURBON / Johnny Drum Private Stock

February 5, 2014

Turns out that my favorite Bourbon (Rowan’s Creek) is made by Willett.  As I’ve been trying different cigars lately, I decided to start branching out with Bourbon’s as well.  Johnny Drum is pretty good stuff.  Priced at $29.00 it’s an excellent value.  One interesting thing is that it is exceptional on ice (assuming that’s possible).

Color:
Mahogany

Nose:
Intensity – 2.5; Pine trees, campfire smoke, takes on a wonderful single malt nose when water is added

Palate:
Smoke elements quite prevalent, deep forests & woods, candied pecans, musty, oranges

Finish:
Length – Medium; Pepper, spice, mint, a blend of forests and cedar wood
