Whisky Reviews for Old Grand-Dad Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.00 points

  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    This is high quality Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, of a style that will not likely get back. Despite the 43% ABV it's a powerhouse with a lot of rustic notes. It certainly has that corn-based sweetness and waxiness, but enough fruit and spice to cover it.
    • Nose
      88 88
      The nose is very powerful and bold for a whiskey at this strenth (and age). It has shoe polish, car wax, dark cherry, blood orange, tinned peach, golden syrup and cinnamon.
    • Taste
      88 88
      The power of the nose continues on the palate. Initially sweet on corn, polish, wax, new leather, syrup and fruit, it gets oakier and dryer on pepper, clove and cinnamon, wich is a nice development. It's never out of bounds, but the real deal.
    • Finish
      85 85
      The finish is medium, focusing on the spice. The other elements are not so pronounced anymore. However, wood, polish, some corn and new leather are still present.

  2. Dram Dracula did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Bottled around 1975 at 40 imperial ounces (so 1136.5 ml). One can tell the approximate bottling year from the front of the label at the bottom corner (F-75) and also a number etched into the bottom of the glass bottle (75).
