Old Overholt is an appropriately old brand of rye whiskey and one half of “The Olds”, alongside Bad Santa’s favourite, Old Grand-Dad. It’s a classic straight rye produced by Jim Beam.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Not as ‘in your face’ as rye can be, but the mild spice is there, alongside some sweetness and fruitiness, especially apples.

Palate: Vanilla, then that rye spice, summer fruits with some darker spices developing.

Finish: More prominent rye on the finish.

Overall: A cocktail-making American classic.

If this is Bad Santa’s favourite, you’d better have a glass ready at Xmas!
