10 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 750ml
Basil Hayden’s 10 Year Old Bourbon features the same high-rye bourbon recipe that Basil Hayden’s fans know and love, but the whiskey is aged in barrels longer to create another layer of complexity and deeper flavor. The result of the extra aging is a distinct whiskey with big oak aromas along with hints of char and vanilla. Basil Hayden’s trademark spice shines through as the perfect complement to the caramel sweetness and wood flavors, making the whiskey a memorable one for fans and newcomers alike. Serving neat, with a drop of water, or on-the-rocks allows the sweet caramel and vanilla notes that develop from 10 years in a newly charred American Oak barrel to shine, complementing the spicy rye flavors typical to Basil Hayden’s Bourbon high-rye mashbill. At 80-proof, this whiskey is light enough to examine on the palette without the burn associated with higher-proof whiskeys.

About the brand
Based on a historically-significant iteration of whiskey first distilled back in 1796, Basil Hayden is a legacy-bourbon brand originally launched by Booker Noe in 1992. Produced in Clermont Kentucky under the family of brands owned by renowned liquor producer Jim Beam, this subtle whiskey is the lower-proof sibling of other Beam offerings such as Knob Creek and Booker’s Bourbon. Named after devout Catholic Basil Hayden Sr, dubbed the “Father of High-Rye Bourbon”, this premium brand mirrors the spicy richness of one of the first high-rye whiskies available on the market. Originally labeled with an 8 year age statement, Basil Hayden replaced its age guarantee in 2014 with “Artfully Aged”, officially becoming NAS whiskey. The brand is cited as the lightest-bodied small batch bourbon available from Jim Beam.

My first BH a Christmas present from my flawless spouse! Ill never dismiss an endowment of bourbon in any case this one isnt a top pick. 80 proof is a lot lower than what I ordinarily drink.

Introductory aroma is citrus and a small piece of chocolate covered in the natural vanilla and oak. The principal bit of flavor is recognizable Basil Hayden's with the rye showing up and afterward rapidly the flavor keeps on relaxing into delightful wood notes. On the off chance that you keep your mouth shut that higher age keeps that wood taste entirely through to the completion. Assuming nonetheless you choose to inhale it all in the splendid rye hitches a ride with grain citrus and botanical notes nearby the street of matured oak.

Tasting Notes
Nose
The nose brings doses of summer fruits and oak. Additionally, there’s a light hint of honeyed vanilla added to the mix. The aroma is less floral than I find standard Basil Hayden’s to be, with oak coming through more predominantly. Sadly, the low proof results in a lack of overall depth.
Taste
The palate continues to be light due to the 80 proof that Beam bottles this at. The good news is that this lower proof really allows you to roll the sip around in your mouth for a long time to try to pick out flavors. The bad news is that oak and sweet vanilla form the entirety of the palate, which isn’t what you’d expect from a 10 year old bourbon.
Finish
Like its younger sibling, Basil Hayden’s 10 Year’s finish is short and almost nonexistent, ending almost as soon as it starts. Light oak dominates with an ever-so-slight touch of sweetness. For a 10 year old bourbon the lack of depth is surprising and unfortunate.
