Old Grand-Dad is a bourbon whisky with an almost fanatical following -- cult-like. This is the 100 proof version of the brand.

It is made with a higher percentage of rye in the mashbill than most other bourbon whiskies. This provides a spicy, dry kick that, combined with the high alcohol content, can best be described as meaty and powerful.

Today the brand is part of the company behind Jim Beam – Beam Global. It was founded in the mid-19th century by Raymond B. Hayden, grandson of the famous Basil Hayden Sr. Basil Hayden is a name synonymous with bourbon history and is sold today by as part of Jim Beam’s Small Batch collection as a brand itself. Basil Hayden’s image is on every Old Grand-Dad bottle.

Elegant is not a description that can be used to describe Old Grand-Day 100 Proof. Nor is it pretty (just look at the bottle). Rather, it is raw bourbon whisky that is rough, rugged and not for the feint-hearted.

It is also fantastic.

For many whisky drinkers it is a favourite to be kept in stock in drinks’ cabinets. More...
