The O.G. Bourbon
OG and old grand dad apply in equal measures here. Either way, it's a classic. One liter.
FUNDAMENTALS: Features a high level of rye in the mashbill, which lends complexity. This makes an awesome Manhattan cocktail.
NOSE: Cinnamon, light caramel, vanilla
PROFILE: Pears, apricots, charred oak, baking spices
FUN FACTS: Established in 19882. Old Grand Dad was a real person - one you may have heard of: Basil Hayden. This is legit juice and a genteel price point.
