Review #817 | /r/Bourbon Review #443 – Johnny Drum Private Stock

The Schtick: This is a younger product that is being distilled and released by Willett. It is bottled at 50.5% ABV and sees sporadic distribution around the US. I’m counting this as craft, since it was one of their first releases that wasn’t an Estate product.


This is day 3 of the Craft Whiskey Countdown. Let’s see if I’m heading up or down.

Distiller: Willett (KBD)

Bottler: Willett

ABV: 50.5% ABV

Age: NAS

Source: Sample

Nose: Caramel, vanilla, cinnamon, clove, faint cocoa

Taste: Thin, no heat, sweet caramel, vanilla, mild tobacco, faint nuttiness.

Finish: Medium length, pleasantly sweet, caramel, vanilla, honey, apples.

Overall: Nice. Not super complex, but pleasant and enjoyable

Thanks for reading!
