Whisky Reviews for Old Grand-Dad Bottled in Bond

  1. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Purchased for $425 on the secondary market in mid-2017, and that's considered cheap. It's very quaffable and nice, but I regret paying that money for just "nice" -- plenty of other stuff by Willett's or Four Roses better than this for a fraction of the cost. This does not have enough of a backbone to be part of a tasting if it has other cask strength bourbons -- its easy-going demeanor can be easily overwhelmed. However, with that said, I do appreciate its fresh nose and a very nice,  sweet, caramel taste leading into butterscotch.

    PS: After having this opened for about a year, I am beginning to appreciate this smooth, mellow National Distillers spirit more and more. Sometimes, 50% is better than cask strength at 60% or more.
