Free Shipping on 6 or MoreQtyBasil Hayden, Sr. first began distilling his whiskey almost 200 years ago. This bourbon combines a spicy, peppery flavor with a dry, clean finish due to the high percentage of rye in the mash.
Distillery: "In 1796, Master Distiller Basil Hayden Sr. conjectured that the spicy flavor of rye would be a striking complement to the sweet smoothness of corn in his distillery's standard bourbon. And much to the chagrin of the traditionalist set, Basil was right. His recipe was a masterpiece, resulting in 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. 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.
Color: Golden amber Aroma Spice, tea, hint of peppermint Taste: Spicy, peppery, honey, light-bodied, gentle bite Finish: Dry, clean, brief."
