    Jonny Drum Private Stock?

    Does anyone drink and/or love Jonny Drum Private Stock? I saw it at my Whole Foods $31. Apparently it's 15 years old and 101 proof--sounds good to me.

    It used to be 15yo. Check the label, if it has the age statement - buy. If not, YMMV.

    Re: Jonny Drum Private Stock?

    I had a couple of bottles of Johnny Drum back when it was bottled at 12 years of age. My take on it was basic Heaven Hill whisky under a different label at twice the price.

    Still, $31.00 isn't bad for a 15 year old Bourbon but yes, make sure there is an age statement on the label.

    Re: Jonny Drum Private Stock?

    I bought a bottle a while back when someone suggested it as a slightly chearper alternative to Rowan's Creek (which I like). Similar in taste, and slightly cheaper, but I like RC better. That said, it wasn't a 15 year old, and cheaper than your price. I'd grab it at 15 yrs./$31 just to check it out.

    I tried it after reading several positive reviews of it. Mine was not age stated. Mine wound up getting taken to a party so others could use it as a mixer. Wasn't a fan, even in cocktails at home.

    Yeah, I didn't have as negative a reaction as petrel, but I can't envision buying the NAS stuff again. I'd still be interested in trying the 15 year old, though.

    Hi All,
    Thanks.

    There is no age statement on the Jonny Drum Private Stock. If it's 12 or 15 years old, it should most certainly say that right?

    It used to be age stated. I still see a lot of liquor stores using age stated flyers on Non Age Stated products that used to be age stated. I see it a lot with Noah's Mill and Basil Haden. Most likely just laziness on the part of your local store.

    Did your 15 say "15", or do you just think all Private Stock is 15?
