Old Grand Dad BIB.
I had hoped to join in with the December BOTM, OGD 114, but it's not available locally. In fact I'd wager a bottle from my top shelf that there's no OGD 114 anywhere within the 8,000 square miles of Yavapai County.
The BIB is one of the best buys in bourbon. It's both spicy and sweet on the nose. Both elements carry forward to the palate, which has a little tingle at the end. The rather scant finish is mainly spicy, a little dry, but not flinty.
This is one that Beam does right.
