Johnny Drum has an interesting history, having originally started back in the 1960s from Thompson Willett at the Willettt distillery. It was originally bottled exclusively for a wholesaler in California. While the current Johnny Drum is different from the original, it still has a storied past, which makes this bourbon worth consuming. Currently there are three different types of Johnny Drum: - Green Label - Low Shelf; 80 proof. - Black Label - Mid Shelf; 86 proof.
