The use of fresh, 'virgin' American Oak barrels is one of the key contributors to the overall flavour of Kentucky Bourbons, bold with spice, vanilla and a strong woody influence.
America has seen a considerable growth of craft and small-scale producers, many of which are eschewing the traditional styles, offering a more diverse range of grains, casks and types of whiskey being produced.
American Whiskey — Johnny Drum
Johnny Drum Private Stock Bourbon 50.1%
Bottled at 50.5%, Johnny drum is one of Kentucky's best kept secrets. Produced in small batches to ensure the finest quality and consistency, this bourbon has a well balanced rich and spicy sweetness to it, followed by a long spicy finish. Creamy, complex and well rounded this is a bourbon punching well above its weight.
