Johnny Drum

My eyes have been attracted to the old school labeling for some time. This time i decided to grab a bottle.

Try as I might, I can't seem to pull any aroma out of it. Shaking it up, swirl in the glass... it took some work and I finally got a whiff of vanilla. Not much else.

Light and watery in the mouth, weak taste of vanilla on the tongue. This is real smooth, delivering just a tickle of spiciness up front and a wimpy burn toward the back.

And then it's gone.

Pretty slim stuff.
And I wasted close to $20 on this bottle. This is bullshit.
I would expect something like this if I paid maybe 9-10 bucks, but damn... these bastards putting themselves on the same monetary plane as Wild Turkey or Jim Beam, et al should be a criminal offense.

I've been taken, and I don't like that one bit.

You should write something bad about them on the internet.

Gino, you should try the Black Maple Hill. Just opened it this evening and I like it. Very good.

Good luck on your vocal recovery. Sounds like your headed in a better direction.

Gino said...

Brian: now thats a good idea.

K-Rod: i'll look for that, but it appears to be a limited release. i'll check BevMo next payday.
