-No Age Statement
-High Rye Mashbill
Nose: Top heavy with rye spice, vanilla wafers, and sugar-babies candies. It has a fairly herbal aroma along with a hint of leather and toasted oak.
Taste: Chewy with a sweet yet spicy entry. There's a hint of peanut with a touch of fresh cut grass and corn. Heavy black pepper spice and leather shuffle through the palate.
Finish: Medium with a fading sweetness. Black pepper spice lingers along with a nice warmth.
Conclusion: Old Grand-Dad 114 is the perfect value bourbon. The robust flavor, thick mouthfeel, and $25 pricetag make this a definite buy. It wont surprise you with overall flavor or complexity, but it's one of those bourbons that you can drink neat without breaking the bank. The high proof and high rye mash are also the perfect combination for an awesome cocktail. I will for sure be buying another bottle in the future.
My Rating: B (Good)
