Basil Hayden's Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey has aged to the perfect expression of its novel, spicy-sweet flavor profile to preserve the subtle sophistication that makes it so sharable. Late in the 18th century, Master Distiller Basil Hayden Sr. left his Maryland home for the greener pastures of Kentucky, bringing his family and reputation with him.
Marked by a vibrant cascade of aroma and flavors, it has been carefully matured for exceptional quality and distilled in the heart of bourbon country in Clermont, Kentucky. This unique, single small-batch bourbon whiskey is blessed with rich hints of peppermint, notes of pepper, slight citrus overtones, and a spicy, warming finish. It utilizes twice as much rye as the other bourbons in the collection for a gentle yet tangy flavor.
It is best to sip neat, on the rocks, in a classic Manhattan or Old Fashioned. Try it in a Mint Julep or Bourbon Mary while savoring the aroma with a spicy, peppery, honey-toned light body and gentle bite. Carefully matured for exceptional quality, Basil Hayden's is artfully aged and bottled at 80 proof (40% alcohol by volume). Enjoy the fun!
