Last Night's Tipple
Another drink of Old Grand-Dad Bottled in Bond last night. Despite the fact that other Bourbons have a higher rye content than Old Grand-Dad (cf. Bulleit), OGD has the most rye-influenced nose and palate of any Bourbon that I have tried. 100% spice, lots of cinnamon, very enjoyable. I suppose that it would be impossible for Beam to turn a brand with a name like Old Grand-Dad into something super-premium, which is a bit of a shame. Though it would raise the price of this little gem, it might get it some well-deserved attention and respect.
