Basil Hayden's 10 Year Bourbon is made using the same high-rye mash bill as the standard offering, one of four bottles in the Beam Small Batch Collection. It was announced in December 2018 as a limited edition bottling. There are plans for this bottling to return each holiday season in limited quantities.

Tasting Notes

"The 10 year edition of Basil Hayden's is really nicely balanced between the sweet vanilla of its long time in oak and the spice of its high rye mash bill, the latter coming through with notes of banana and clove. A bit of smoky, charred wood comes through on the finish. At just 40% abv it's quite enjoyable to sip, though a higher proof might have helped to make this limited release feel a little more special."
