Basil Hayden Kentucky Straight Bourbon


Basil Hayden was affectionately known as the ‘father of High Rye Bourbon’ and was a pioneer. To honor the man, the family of Jim Beam created a brand around small batch bourbons and named it Basil Hayden’s back in the early 1990s. Supposedly it’s the same mash that Knob Creek uses as well. Whatever it is, it has become synonymous with easy-drinking, smooth, reliable Kentucky Straight Bourbon with mass appeal.

Crafted in 1992 by Booker Noe as part of the Small Batch collection, Basil Hayden introduced a more subtle side of bourbon compared to much of their competitors. It’s a smooth, giving Bourbon that never lets you down.

The Kentucky Straight checks in at 80 Proof and has a robust, rich flavor that hits you in waves. Charred oak, with notes of honey, caramel and fresh baked bread flood the senses with a brown sugar dominant palate that also features creme brûlée notes and a hint of pepper. The finish goes on for a while, and leaves lingering notes of dried fruit, and cocoa.

I have the best price in the country for a limited time on this flagship bottling – a Bourbon Buyers Club Exclusive offer (this product is not available thru the store). If you’re a whiskey fan, you may as well load up at these prices – it doesn’t get any better than this.

“Complex and balanced, this go-to Bourbon features vanilla aromatics with a touch of fresh apple. On the palate, it’s light at first, showing vanilla and honey, and winds into deeper, rounded notes of cocoa and hazelnut. Splash in ginger ale for a highball and sip all night long.”
