Basil Hayden offered a limited release of a few different Bourbons last year. One was the ‘Subtle Smoke’ that Bourbon Buyers Club members scooped up on a matter of hours. This next one I got a hold of is called ‘Toast’ a play on the Bourbons composition, using charred, treated barrels to store their Bourbon that was made with the secret ingredient of U.S. grown brown rice.
Whisky Advocate said of the new Basil Hayden, “This whiskey features not just a new mashbill, but a new look for Basil Hayden as well. Toast marks the debut of a design-forward packaging update that elevates Basil Hayden’s signature look.”
This one features rich notes of maple syrup, cocoa, and charred wood. It has notes of a sweet molasses bread, dried fruit, caramel and creamy butterscotch flavors coming through on a mid-palate which has more depth and range of flavor coming from the brown rice composition. This gives it a a richer more savory profile, with deep and intricate layers. I’m a fan.
Our price today is a special one. The average price for this is about $75/btl going all the way up to $100/pop. But we’re going out at the lowest price legally allowed in New Jersey – and it’s a lot lower than those prices!
