Something about the Bonded 100 proof bottling of this Kentucky bourbon speaks to its origins and continued success. It’s not expensive, it’s not fancy. It’s just good old fun—with a higher amount of rye in the mashbill for lighter, spicier profile. The “Old Grand-Dad” mentioned happens to be distiller Basil Hayden (whose own namesake line also continues to wow). While he didn’t develop this, his grandson did—and did so with fervor.
