Bourbon de Luxe Kentucky Straight Bourbon 1970s
An old bottle of Bourbon de Luxe, distilled and bottled by National Distillers at the Old Grand-dad distillery in the mid-1970s.
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.
National Distillers later sold their portfolio to Jim Beam in 1987. Old Grand-dad still exists as a warehousing facility, but the stills have been silent for some time.
