One of our favorite bottles of whiskey would be a delightful bottle of Basil Hayden. That is certainly our go-to-whiskey when we are just sitting around at the bar and grabbing one off the shelf. What both hosts learned, Basil was honored with a bottle of whiskey that was created by his grand-son I guess it does make sense that Hayden created Old Grand Dad in honor of his grandfather. So this week, we are drinking Bottled In Bond, Old Grand Dad, 100 Proof Whiskey.. It is certainly a throat catcher with the spice and taste which really split both hosts on our enjoyment of this whiskey. Train.. Train..
Again, this is another week where we don’t think we are going to have a very long blog when it came to our whiskey review. This certainly was another week of don’t judge a bottle by its label because you might miss out on something. Well that and it was certainly another week to learn something about one of our favorite bottles of whiskey.
This week, we were drinking bottled in bond, 100 proof Old Grand Dad whiskey. Which we just assumed that it might be in the rank of Evan Williams and Heaven Hill, not that we are saying those are low end bottles but just one end of the spectrum. What we didn’t realize that Old Grand Dad is actually a whiskey that a grandson created in memory of his grandfather. Yeah, great story right? Well not just a random whiskey when that grandfather is Basil Hayden.. That is right, Basil Hayden.. That Basil Hayden.. One of our favorite whiskey that we have not only reviewed but had enjoyed well before that podcast entry.
Now this whiskey was really one that the hosts had a split decision during their entire review. Now with that being said, we had a complete derail on this review because we weren’t sure whether or not this would be a great whiskey to give friends when they come over to visit, what is the best way to try the whiskey and again another week of judging the book by its cover. We will leave plenty of the details in the podcast but this is a great teaser to get the blood flowing.
Now, we have said it before and we will keep saying it again. We are so very greatly with the awesome line up of companies we are working with during this podcast. We like to think of each of our sponsors / partners as part of our extended Whiskey On The Rails family. When you get to pair up such great products, it is really fun to come out and record every week because we stand behind everything we talk about and enjoy each of the products we get to use during the show. Even Eric and Rob get along during the podcast because of these great products and that right there is a miracle..
