Basil Hayden is about to release for the first time as a limited offering their “Basil Hayden Subtle Smoke”. It’s a one-time release. They have told me it’s going to be very limited & each store is only getting about six bottles. They are suggesting that everybody use a release price of $100. I only got enough bottles for a Bourbon Buyers Club send.
Will other people follow this guidance? I have no idea because I’ve seen this type of deal before and prices quickly can sky rocket out of control. Will this one do the same? See above answer. I’m going to be as far as I can to the Bourbon Buyers Club and release it at $75 per bottle.
Basil Hayden says this beauty will use the same high-rye mash bill that fans know and love but will be slightly differently crafted using toasting and lightly charred secondary barreling to achieve a smokiness in a completely unique manor. This one is the campfire whiskey that people know and love. Notes of charred wood, smoke, with a little of the fresh baked sour dough smell and creamy butterscotch flavors coming through on the mid-palate that finishes with a little hickory smoke. This one is bottled at 80 Proof.
