  • Excerpt: Old Grand-Dad 114 is a fantastic value. It’s the king of the OGD lineup delivered at a working man’s price.

  • Excerpt: The palate has a nice viscous mouthfeel with some alcohol burn (to be expected at this proof), candy corn, tobacco and rye grain. The finish is long, spicy and oaky.

  • Excerpt: Old Grand-Dad’s 114 might not be for everyone. It’s a full-flavored affair and its 114 proof can taste stronger than other bourbons at a higher proof.

  • Publication: Wine Enthusiast
  • Excerpt: Entry is vividly spirited and potent but not harsh or overpowering; the midpalate highlights corn meal, breakfast cereal, orange rind, dark chocolate and toffee. Sophisticated, yet powerful and assertive.

  • Excerpt: It's a good sip right up to the swallow, then it falls apart. A little more age might serve to insert a bit more barrel flavor to the drink, and tame that yeast. Regardless, at this price it's a great option for any bourbon shelf.

  • Excerpt: This bottle is an airtime bottle for sure. Over time, air affects it very positively and it opens up to a sweet, peanut brittle bomb. I like it a good deal, but I think the Bottled in Bond product is my favorite of the line.

Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    This is a 114pf version of the OGD products released from Beam Suntory. Its regularly available and inexpensive, although brief rumors of its demise came and went, causing taters to buy cases. Thankfully, that was not true, and it sits on every local shelf to this day.

  • Nose:

    Ethanol, caramel, faint peanut brittle. Buttery and sweet.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouthfeel but a good deal of heat. Caramel, faint oak, faint astringency. The sweet peanut brittle returns.

  • Finish:

    Long and surprisingly mellow. Sweet, buttery caramel is dominant here followed by some astringency and honey roasted peanuts.

  • Overall:

    This bottle is an airtime bottle for sure. Over time, air affects it very positively and it opens up to a sweet, peanut brittle bomb. I like it a good deal, but I think the Bottled in Bond product is my favorite of the line.
