Light caramel, buttery sweet and no peanut funk. Lots of toffee and butterscotch. Its sweet and I like that a lot.
Light and sweet, no ethanol. Lots of caramel with a mild floral undertone.
Short but sweet and not rough at all. Im really impressed at the complexity and well blended-ness (is that a word? Now it is.) of these older bottlings.
It is certainly different than current OGD86 and I like it. Sweet and simple, these older bottlings seem to be more one dimensional in profile but what they do, they do very well. Again, I'm impressed and I certainly see the appeal now of hunting these fellas down. For the quality exhibited here, I'm giving the Old Grand Dad from 1998 a rating of a 6: a cut above. OGD1998 sits handily next to other classic BIBs in the bracket, sharing a row with the likes of Very Old Barton Bottled in Bond, Heaven Hill Bottled in Bond and Wild Turkey 101.
