OLD GRAND-DAD 86 proof ( DSP KY. 14 )

Dry woodsmoke. A faint echo of tobacco.

Starts off dry then develops a magnificently refined sweetness. Exquisitely textured. Short burts of pepper in the background.

Spicy oak mixed with natural sweet toffee.

Not the current Jim Beam product. This is from the defunct Old Grand-Dad distillery in Frankfort. A sad loss, heavily accentuated by the fact that this is not even a premium whiskey.

Rating: 8,5/10
