Tasting Notes

The Basil Hayden 10 Year is the same high-rye bourbon Hayden fans know and love but aged longer for a softer smoother experience. The deep rye grain is balanced perfectly with the mellow vanillas and sweet oak aromas. Basil's trademark spice is always there keeping things honest. At 80 proof it's easy enough for anyone to appreciate. When you want to turn it up a bit, but not scare anyone off, the Basil 10 year is a great choice.

    Basil Hayden has long been one of the most popular bourbons at K&L. The standard BH, long bottled at 8 years old, has presumably dropped to be in the 6-8 year range since it lost it's age statement in 2014. Fortunately for fans of the woodier profile that comes with age, Beam has brought back a number for the front of the bottle in this 10 year old release. Still bottled at 80 proof and showing off the signature spicy finish of the high rye mashbill, BH10 is the perfect whisky for fans of the old style Basil whiskey. Richer in caramel, vanilla, mocha, and with a touch of fresh mint, the 10 year is a huge step up from excellent, but sometimes thin, regular bottling. The extra time in barrel provides the backbone that is characteristic of the higher proof in a bottling like Old Grand Dad.

    This is a high rye Bourbon that doesn't necessarily drink like one. It's got big smooth caramel running throughout just accented by baking spice. Notes of stewed apples mix with buttermilk creaminess and a bright cherry accent. This is a very smooth Bourbon with a long, earthy finish.

    Bourbon comes in many different styles from rich and heavy to more light and delicate styles. This Basil 10 is a classy example of the light and delicate style .The nose is pretty with a subtle aromas. In the mouth it is juicy and elegant, light and balanced with a subtle vanilla finish. This is a first class bourbon that should please any whiskey drinker.
