The Bottled in Bond act of 1897 made the federal gov. a guarantor of a whiskeys authenticity. No iodine or tobacco flavoring and color in this Old Grand-Dad! Even though all the major players still produce BIB products you won't find much of the illicit practices from the past used in any type of publicly sold spirit today. Most BIB products today represent a great value to price ratio. Old Grand-Dad is a high rye mash bill from Jim Beam. It's def one of my favorites and a great choice for todays Jimmy Buffet tailgate!
