Old Grand-Dad 114 Bottling Note

Old Grand-Dad 114 is a bold Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey with a rich history dating back to 1796. It’s a favorite among bourbon enthusiasts for its unique combination of strength and smooth taste.

The key characteristic of Old Grand-Dad 114 is its high alcohol proof. Bottled at 114 proof (57% alcohol by volume), it packs a powerful punch compared to most bourbons, which typically range around 80-100 proof. This higher proof translates to a more intense flavor experience, but surprisingly, Old Grand-Dad 114 manages to maintain a surprising level of smoothness.

This smoothness comes from the aging process. Although the exact details remain a closely guarded secret, Old Grand-Dad 114 is matured in charred oak barrels for an undisclosed amount of time. The charring process imbues the whiskey with rich flavors of caramel, vanilla, and spice, while the extended aging mellows the high alcohol content, resulting in a well-rounded and enjoyable drink.

Another defining characteristic of Old Grand-Dad 114 is its grain mash bill. Unlike many bourbons that rely heavily on corn, Old Grand-Dad 114 incorporates a higher proportion of rye grain. This rye influence contributes a distinct spiciness to the flavor profile, complementing the sweetness of the caramel and vanilla notes.

Old Grand-Dad 114 is a bourbon best appreciated by those who enjoy a more assertive whiskey experience. Some recommend enjoying it neat or with a splash of water to fully appreciate the complex flavors. However, for those who find it a bit too strong neat, Old Grand-Dad 114 also holds its own well in cocktails. The robust flavor profile stands up well to mixers and can add depth and complexity to classic cocktails like the Old Fashioned or the Manhattan.

Finding Old Grand-Dad 114 can be a bit of a challenge in Europe. While it’s still available in some markets, it’s not as widely distributed as it once was. This limited availability has contributed to its reputation as a somewhat rare and sought-after bourbon among collectors and enthusiasts.

So, if you’re looking for a strong, flavorful bourbon with a rich history, Old Grand-Dad 114 is definitely worth seeking out. Just be prepared for a bold and spicy experience that packs a punch.
