Customer Rating
A cult bourbon with a very high rye content in the mash, which provides a spicy kick on the palate. A very traditional old-style bourbon, not for the faint-hearted.

    I'm more of a Scotch, Japanese whisky kind of guy. As far as bourbon goes, I have Bulleit, Makers Mark (my wife's favourite), Jeffersons Reserve and Evan Williams Single Barrel. I admit, I can be a whisky snob at times searching far and wide for Pappy van winkle with no luck. But, I was at a whisky festival and one of the staff at the whisky festival I've come to know as a friend pulled this out from under the table and said, "try this!" Well!!! Snap!! This stuff is off the hook!!! Im 34 so I'm allowed to say that; I think. Anyways, you don't have to be 70 to be able to enjoy drinking this as a previous review questioned. Which is where I was going with my age and the "off the hook" comment. All the other reviews previous to mine are very accurate descriptions as to how good this is. Not only is it awesome, but the price point is better than some of the aforementioned. This is delicious bourbon, very robust! Lots of character.

    I've been drinking this Old Grand Dad faithfully for thirty years or more, several times I split a bottle with Top Jimmy, it was his brand as well. I guess now us old-timers will switch to the bottled-in-bond.

    Having recently discovered quality bourbons, I've hand my eye on this for a while. My lovely wife bought me a bottle for Christmas and I'm enjoying it as I write this. An anonymous review below pretty much sums it up and I would only add that I find myself tasting a citrus-ey tang as well, a bit like orange. As well that dry, peppery finish, I get a teensy bit of oak too. Really a very good spirit.

    I used to drink this in my local pub in Newbury UK years ago and have never seen it since in any pub in England! Love it with lots of ice and a splash of coke..get in

    Certainly has a kick to the palate, but to me its exactly the same as 101 proof Wild Turkey but that's NOT a bad thing. Should be served real cold & gently supped through a thin straw, that will make your eyes water :)

    Disregard the name - fools will dismiss it as being uncool because of it. One of the greatest bourbons out there. Strong, rich and smokey. I keep coming back to this again and again.

    A particularly flavoursome bourbon, dead smooth too. Delightful to sit at a bar sucking down bottles of Dixie beer with Old Grandad chasers. Happy days.

  • R.T.Fishall 18 February 2012

    This is the ONLY Bourbon worth drinking, almost as good as the finest Scotch. The best thing to have come out of the US since Lease Lend. Unfortunately, both have a pay back! lol

  • Saul 6 June 2011

    Drank this a lot in Pennsylvania and Louisiana. Its great for sipping, or as a shot. Smooth and tasteful. One of the best bourbons out there for mass sale!

    can i marinara a beef basket with this whisky.

  • D Bunn, UK 29 June 2010

    To be matched against the finest single malt Scotch whiskey

  • JumpingJack 1 May 2010

    Pappy is my bourbon of choice. My friends all bitch and moan about how rank it is but they are a bunch of ****** anyway. As a salty boozer I reccommend this exceptional libation to anyone who has graduated from the kiddy bourbons (i.e. beam)

    Puts hairs on your chest!

    Sounds Dangerous!

    Excellent old-fashioned bourbon. Slightly sweet with dryish, peppery finish. Storng Virginia tobacco and maple flavors with good cedar and oak wood flavor. Best to air for 20 minutes in the glass before taking without water. Good with ice but NO water. A lot of character. Nice, no pretense American spirit.

  • Quake 'n' Shake 12 December 2008

    Does anybody under the age of 70 drink this stuff?

  • Homicide MD 21 September 2008

    A fabulous bourbon at an unbelievable price! Being from Pennsylvania, and being Pennsylvania Dutch, I can tell you that we take our beer

  • Ed 28 August 2008

    Jim Beam and Jack Daneil's are weak compared to this stuff. I highly recomend this to those of you who thnk they've tried the strongest whiskeys. Believe me, you'll try nothing like this!!
