Old Grand-Dad Bicentennial Decanter 1976

Featuring the image of Basil Hayden, Old Grand-dad is a classic of the bourbon world.  This is a very rare decanter produced in 1976 to commemorate the Bicentennial of the founding of America in 1776.

Distilled and bottled by National Distillers at the now silent Old Grand-dad distillery.

The 1970s and 1980s represented a period in the US known as the "Glut Era," when warehouses were over-stocked with whiskey, and many barrels of better-aged than usual bourbon was often dumped into these standard expressions. They are well worth trying.
