Old Grand-Dad is based on the high-rye bourbon recipe made famous by Basil Hayden -- it's his picture on the bottle. This is the Bottled-In-Bond version of Old Grand-Dad Bourbon, meaning it was all distilled in the same calendar year. Additionally, it was aged at least 4 years under government supervision, and it is bottled at 50% ABV. Along with Old Overholt Rye, Old Grand-Dad falls under "The Olds" whiskeys released by Jim Beam.

Tasting Notes

"The aroma is full of oranges, vanilla bean, oak, and sweet corn. Brûléed sugars along with more orange and oak appear on the palate with a touch of black pepper. The finish is of moderate length with citrus, toasted barrel sugars, and corn."
