Just curious as to why there are no "big time" (i.e. Cowdery, Hansell et. al, Jason Pyle....etc, etc) reviews of OGD 114. I am glad it slides under the radar, but to me it is the king of ryed bourbons.

Nice job Aaron. Review is spot on. OGD 114 is truly one of the great bourbon values out there. Makes me want to bunker a case before things change.

Maybe someday I'll hit the big time. A boy has to have a dream, right?

I had missed that one also, Josh. Very good. I like the description of the burnt edges of a pan of brownies.

The burnt brownie edge description comes from our bestest buddy and big toe Smokinjoe....aka the OGD 114 Pimp.

Josh, thanks for linking to this. I had read the review previously, but I got a double dip out of it today, as the top of that page also prodded me for the next review (for the 2009 4R SBLE). I have recently located 2 bottles of this bourbon, and may go back now and pick one or both up, even at $92.

I couldn't write a review of OGD 114 without bringing his famous tasting note into it. :bowdown:

Glad you guys enjoyed it! Yeah, SFS, even at $92, that's a sure-fire buy for me!

The first rule of being an OGD114 fan is to NEVER talk about OGD114.

Don't let lurkers know about it. it's a well kept secret!

OGD is for old geezers with fried palates - nothing to see here, move along...

Yep you are right my bad.

OGD 114 is horrible stuff, only fit for those who want to drown it in Coke..bad stuff, bad stuff.

They are both terrible people - and only fitting descriptions for the lame-brain idiots with no taste or appreciation that drink OGD114.

Remember kids: Only losers drink OGD114. Don't be a loser - buy ONLY authentic, certified Pappy products - or the other guys will make fun of you at the bar, at home and at work. Don't waste your time on this swill when so many other better, harder to find, more expensive and a loftier brand-names are available through your local whiskey vultures waiting list.

Friends don't let friends drink OGD114. Ever.

You can achieve geezerdom with the passage of time - no further criteria are involved. To attain the rank of codger, a passing acquaintance with curmudgeonly behavior is required.

On topic: Why you guys rave about OGD is beyond me. It's too hot, too rye-ey (to the point of being unbalanced), and the finish is too short. For the price of a bottle, you can buy two Evan Williams bottles.

Review (And be forewarned, I'm a novice at this type of stuff)

Color: Tea. With a slight orange tint

Nose: Hot. Alcohol. Slight orange. Rye. Spices. Maybe vanilla.

Taste: Rye upfront. Some heat. I read one review said potpourri...I can taste that. Some more orange and citrus. Sweet and thick yet dries up quickly in the mouth.

Finish: Stays with you and tingles the lips. Leaves some heat, but not ovepowering. Some char & oak too.

Verdict: Wow. This is some good stuff. My mainstays have been Weller 12 and 4RSmB...gonna have to make room for this on a regular basis. I wasn't that impressed with OGD BiB, but, as the old Texas rancher who let me hunt his property this year said, "This is good sippin' liquor."

I guess y'all might as well let me know what the OGD 114 club secret handshake is.

I finally caved in and got a bottle of OGD114. I was highly reluctant because the bottle of OLD 86 tasted like sewage and I was afraid that at 114 proof, that sewage concentrated would probably make me puke. To my surprise it was excellent stuff, especially for the price!

What I want to see someone do...is water down OGD114 to 80 proof and see if it truly does taste like Basil Hayden. Also, it would be curious if at 86 proof, does it taste like classic OGD 86?

squire
03-06-2013, 22:17
Bmac, Hayden and Grand Dad are designed to different flavor profiles and watering down Grand Dad does not a Hayden make. The older National Distillers version of Grand Dad is not exactly the same as Beam's expression but the family resemblance is there and close enough to call the difference slight.

The handshake is to not talk about OGD114.
