Tasting Notes

"There's a telltale grassiness to Basil Hayden's whiskeys - both the ryes and bourbons - and it's more amped up here, along with sweet herbal notes of thyme and oregano. Brown bread, pear, Red Delicious apple, vanilla and honey hold the base for a good handful of sweet spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, clove) and oakiness. There's a lot going on despite its low-ish proof, though it's hard not to wish it had been bottled slightly higher to better showcase the full potential of its aromas and flavors. "
