Old Granddad, Bottled in Bond

Old Granddad, Bottled in Bond

Official bottling
Single bourbon - Kentucky
50% ABV

Nose: Bananas, cream, blackcurrant cordial, strawberries, hints of brown paper. 
Mouthfeel: Light body, thickens, turns syrupy, sticky. 
Tasting:  Sweet sour. Bananas, blackcurrant cordial, brown paper, prunes, hints of orange peel . 
Finish: Medium. Brown paper, white pepper, prunes, orange peel. 


A slightly unusual bourbon, the strength and the depth of flavour means that the usually omnipresent brown paper notes are relegated to the background. Reminds me of Ribena with vodka... a little bit, anyway. Good spicy finish, when the brown paper comes whooshing back.


I like this.
