Product Description

Spice up your day with the intense yet approachable flavors of the one and only Basil Hayden Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.

Named after 18th-century distiller Meredith Basil Hayden Sr., Basil Hayden serves as one of Jim Beam’s four small-batch bourbon brands aimed at high-end drinkers. While known for its exceptionally high rye content, their bourbon is actually on the lighter side compared to its brethren giving it a wide appeal.

Gentle and balanced, the Basil Hayden Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is made using the same high-rye mash utilized by Hayden Sr. After fermenting, the bourbon is carefully distilled in small batches before being artfully aged for approximately 8 years in new, charred American oak before being bottled at a healthy 80 proof for a one-of-a-kind expression that is both robust and enjoyable.

The high rye content is immediately apparent on the nose with warming notes of pepper and rye spice accented by corn bread, cinnamon, and honeysuckle. This paves the way for dry and light palate of more rye, brown sugar, roasted pear, oak, and barrel char, tied together by a short, savory finish of subtle vegetal notes.

Smooth, warming, and with a good depth, this bourbon offers drinkers a nice, easy to drink treat that still delivers that lovely spice kick. So whether you like it neat, on the rocks, or with cocktails, there’s no better way to enjoy the flavors of good ol’ Kentucky than with the Basil Hayden Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
