Basil Hayden's 75cl Bottling Note

An 8 year old small batch bourbon. This was named for Jim Beam's historic Master Distiller, Basil Hayden Sr who, in 1796, created a bourbon with a mashbill whose base was of corn, with a mix of small grains for added spice.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Crisp, fresh. Spiced. Rooty, floral. Solid hit of rye.

Palate: Gentle and rounded. Poised rye spice tingling through notes of winter berries.

Finish: Seed cake, vanilla cream, more berries.

User Reviews of the Basil Hayden's 75cl

Found this is New York

Lucky enough to find this, and other reasonably rare Bourbons, in a midtown Manhattan store - can't get this too easily in the UK - it's very subtle for a bourbon...doesn't shout about itself but leaves a deep impression - smooth honey, whisper of smoke and some hints of fruit, vanilla and berries. It's a Southern gentleman...Mark Twain compared to his more rowdy Tennessee neighbours Jack and Jim. One for the connoisseurs

Waiting for it to deliver

A family member just bought this for me and was so proud he did so. Unfortunately I was disappointed. I kept expecting it to deliver a more flavorful profile. I am thinking this will be my cocktail whiskey.

My fave easy to find small batch...

I love the smooth sweet finish of this bourbon. A hint of butterscotch. Love it.

Too little bite for too much money

Perhaps I lack a little sophistication, but it seems to me that Hayden's goes down a little too smooth and lacks a little flavor. This is not to say that it is bad bourbon, it's quite nice, just a little weak. I'd drink this again, but I wouldn't buy it.
