It’s good stuff for cocktails, not the best for sipping.
Old Grand Dad Bonded Bourbon Whiskey
Bourbon /50% ABV / Kentucky, United States
- Kentucky, United States
Old Grand-Dad was a real person, which should not surprise you if you’ve read any of the words on this page. He was a distiller named Basil Hayden who made his name by distilling a bourbon whiskey made with a higher percentage of rye. Basil Hayden passed along the art of distilling to his son Thyme (Just pulling your leg. We don’t know his name) and then, in turn, to his grandson. It was the third generation distiller, Colonel R.B. Hayden, who honored his grandfather by naming his justly famed whiskey “Old Grand-Dad.”View all products by Old Grand-DadCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

Ol’ pappy’s bonded version ain’t bad.
DavidVerified BuyerVerified Buyer
This is one of my favorites due to the high rye grain bill. One of the best bonded bottles at any price range, but definitely a steal for this price.

I was substituted for Grand Old Barton without warning.

Surprisingly good bonded bourbon, and strong. Historical note, Old Grand Dad had a real name. It was Basil Hayden. Great stuff..

It is a more robust bourbon which makes it ideal for cocktails.
Best bourbon for any occasion or even if you're not feeling well. Keep it on the shelves
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
