Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Artfully aged at a relatively mild 80 proof, Basil Hayden's is as novel and delectable a bourbon whiskey as it was when the master distiller rolled out his first barrel over 200 years ago. Marked by a rich cascade of aromas and flavors, Basil Hayden's is still a small batch bourbon, but with broader appeal. And just as it was in 1796, the only 'rule' to enjoying our Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey is that it should be done responsibly.
Tasting Notes: Golden brown color. Charred oak and sweet brown aromatic notes of vanilla & caramel with hints of dried fruit. Charred oak flavor that is complemented with sweet brown sugar, a touch of black pepper, and dried fruit to round it out A pleasant, lingering charred oak finish with a touch of dried fruit.
