Is it cold? Is it not cold? Who knows and who cares because we’ve got two badass bourbons on the lineup for Whiskey Wednesday this week, people. ??
Old Grand-Dad was a real person – a distiller named Basil Hayden who made his reputation by distilling a bourbon whiskey made with a higher percentage of rye. Hayden passed along the art of distilling to his son and then, in turn, to his grandson. It was the third generation distiller, Colonel R.B. Hayden, who honored his grandfather by naming his justly famed whiskey “Old Grand-Dad®.” Enjoy the 114 version a special price of $10 now through Sunday, January 27, 2019, in Greensboro.
A newcomer that pays tribute to the heritage of the legendary Stitzel-Weller Distillery, Blade and Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey “uses a unique Solera System aging process to preserve some of the distillery’s oldest whiskey stocks, including some of the last bourbon produced there before it closed in 1992”, according to its makers. It’s specially priced in Raleigh this week for $14 through Sunday, January 27, 2019.
See you this week, bourbon friends!
