Basil Hayden’s Bourbon (750ml)
Bourbon Learn More
In 1796, Master Distiller Basil Hayden Sr. broke ‘the rules’ by mixing small grains into the mash of a traditional corn base.
Marked by a rich cascade of aromas and flavors, Basil Hayden’s is still a small batch bourbon, but with broad appeal. Enjoy neat, on the rocks or in a class Old Fashioned.
The result was a unique, singular small batch bourbon whiskey that was blessed with rich hints of peppermint, notes of pepper, slight citrus overtones, and a spicy, warming finish.
Nose: This is like walking through a stable; think old leather and horsehair- this bourbon smells like you’ve stuck your head in a new oak barrel. Brown sugar and caramel come through once you’ve let it open up a bit.
Palate: Earthy, gritty wood flavours, bruised apple, and ripe asian pear. Some added shaved chocolate and baking spices.
