Odds are, when asked to name a bourbon, the first brand to come to most Americans’ minds will be Jim Beam, and for good reason.
Basil Hayden’s is a light and delicate small-batch bourbon with a lower alcohol content than more traditional bourbons. It is produced by Jim Beam’s Beam Suntory and was first introduced with great acclaim in the early 1990s. This is one of four small-batch, boutique bourbons made by the Jim Beam company. Since its introduction, it has become a favorite of bourbon lovers worldwide and has won countless awards for its complex, bold., yet smooth and nuanced flavor profile.
A subtle, yet complex spirit, Basil Hayden’s is a rye heavy Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey that both starts and finishes smoothly. Made in Clermont, Kentucky, right in the heartland of bourbon country, this is an incredibly unique and subtle bourbon blend that is excellent straight or on the rocks. Since it is so delicate and subtle, it is best enjoyed neat or with a simple splash of soda water. Using a lot of water or using this as a base for mixed drinks will dilute the flavor of the bourbon and you won’t get the full experience. Save your mixed drinks for less delicate bourbons.
This is a high-end and award-winning bourbon that is well-known and loved as a delicate, smooth, yet bold and spicy bourbon that has a unique and pleasant taste that is unmatched in the wide world of bourbon. Aged to perfection in oak barrels, this whiskey is one-of-a-kind and perfect for people who love the bold and spicy flavor of straight Kentucky bourbon but also want to appreciate some of the more subtle complexities bourbons can take on.
The bourbon is made from a unique mash bill that is high in the rye content, with sweet notes from corn. The high rye content provides the spicy and bold flavor that helps this bourbon stand out from the crowd. This is a crowd-pleaser, especially with bourbon aficionados.
