What the Distillery Says:
Handmade by master craftsmen using time-honored methods in the art of distilling, handed down from one generation to the next. Made from pure limestone spring water, carefully selected grains, and proprietary strains of yeast. Aged in new white oak casks until fully mature. Bottled by hand at the peak of perfection in taste, quality and aroma.
What Richard Says:
Nose: Very soft and buttery with something (no tobacco) that reminds me of an old humidor.
Palate: Very easy to drink. Smooth and very enjoyable. Typical bourbon notes of vanilla with a woody base and a hint of spice.
Finish: Goes down like velvet.
Comments: This is what bourbons like Basil Hayden’s should aspire to. Very nice all around. This isn’t the world’s greatest bourbon but it is definitely very nice at a great price. I really think bourbon fans should try it.
Rating: Must Try
