Basil Hayden is one of the four Kentucky straight bourbons in the Beam Small Batch Collection along with Booker's, Baker's, and Knob Creek. Although Basil Hayden, Sr. is not featured on his namesake bottle, his likeness is on every bottle of Old Grand-Dad. It is his high rye bourbon mash bill recipe that is featured in this bottling. It is the lowest proof of the Small Batch Collection coming in at just 80 proof.

Tasting Notes

"Nose is evident of a higher rye content, pepper, rye, honeysuckle. Palate is dry and easy with light notes of brown sugar, leather and rye. Smooth, quick finish with honey, and some warmth."
