Old Grand-Dad Reviews


My favorite! None like it!

It’s decent

Seems to me that this is a bit of a polarizing whiskey. I know some people that think Old Grand Dad is crap and some others that swear by it. I tried this a few different ways...neat, a few drops of water, with stones, without stones and on the rocks. Overall, it’s a decent whiskey for the price, with the operative word being decent. Even at its price, I feel that there are others out there that give Old Grand-Dad a run for its money.

To me, the name is misleading as I think that instead of what my grandad would drink, that it tastes like what the old “cowboy whiskeys” from the western movies would taste like. The nose is mostly cinnamon with some cereal/barley, a touch of caramel and maybe faint wood in there. Mouth is mostly cinnamon, some barley and some caramel that quickly turns astringent and burns with some pepper into the finish. In my opinion, the best way to drink it is whiskey stones with a few drops of water, it provides the best taste. Neat had too much burn for me. On the rocks initially made it taste more buttery and creamy but then quickly drowned it, although I will say it took the burn off.

In summary, it’s decent and affordable so I can see how others like it but for that price, but there are others out there that are better, Evan Williams in particular.

Smooth and a great price

Back up the truck at $20.00

This is indeed an interesting whiskey and a great deal at $20.00. A little hot at first, but really splendid and smooth in length. A sipping whiskey, not a mixer (in my opinion). Vanilla, honey, some wood, some banana, a touch of citrus. If you can find anything this good within $10, please let us know.

My go to. I love it.

My go to. Pretty inexpensive where I live a bottle runs about $15. Great nose (sugar, caramel, maple) and a little heat from the high rye. Great on the rocks or mixed. One day people will rediscover this one and the price will go way up. Also offers a bottled in bond version but skip that and the extra price and go with this one if you've never tried it before. You will not be disappointed.

High-Rye Bourbon With Emphasis On The Rye

Old Grand-Dad is one of those bourbons known as "high-rye bourbons," because the mash of grains out of which it is distilled contains less corn and more rye than is normal for bourbon, but not enough rye to qualify as "rye whiskey" under American law. I have had a good number of high-rye bourbons, but this one is unusual. If I had tasted this "blind" I would have sworn it isn't "high-rye bourbon whiskey" at all but an outright "rye whiskey." Is that a good thing, or a bad thing? I guess it depends on what you think of rye, and fortunately I like it a lot. If you are looking for a more typical bourbon experience, buy something else.

If you are a Jim Beam fan you will love this one. Well balanced after the initial whiskey taste. Easy drinking .
