A 50% abv bottling of this popular and old bourbon brand. Willie Soke would approve. Old Grand-Dad is also the brand specified by Bond in Live and Let Die (the novel) for his Old Fashioned in 1954, but that isn't not why this bourbon is "bonded", of course. It was bottled in bond, meaning it has been aged and bottled according to certain US regulations including the fact that it's from one distillery, has been aged for at least 4 years and was bottled at 100 proof.
Nose: Robust with corn, vanilla and spicy rye as well as floral notes and minty hints.
Palate: Malty caramels, spices, especially clove, and a touch of oak.
Finish: Spicy, fruity rye and hot leather.
Overall: A concentrated version of an American favourite.
