Basil Hayden's Bourbon 8 Year Old 80@

750ML    
Sku: 100625

Basil 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.

Review
Age: 8 years
Proof: 80; approx 40% abv
Notes: Basil Haydenís Bourbon dates back to 1796, when Master Distiller Basil Hayden Sr. created this recipe which contains twice as much rye as the other Small Batch Collection Bourbons.
Color: Golden Amber
Nose: Spicey rye, brown sugar Taste: For both those who love Bourbon and those who are just being introduced to the flavors of various Bourbons, Basil Haydenís is approachable and makes a quick friend with itís gentle and smooth characteristics. The spiciness of the rye compliments the sweetness of the corn and give way to honey and pepper notes. Jim Beam Master Distiller Fred Noe explains more about Basil Haydenís and the Small Batch Collection in the video below from his annual Bourbon Q in Bardstown, Kentucky.
Finish: Crisp, warm, with pepper lingering only briefly.
