Basil Hayden's Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 8 year old
Artfully aged at a relatively mild 80 proof, Basil Hayden's® is as novel and delectable a bourbon whiskey as it was when the master distiller rolled out his first barrel over 200 years ago. Marked by a rich cascade of aromas and flavors, Basil Hayden's® is still a small batch bourbon, but with broader appeal. And just as it was in 1796, the only 'rule' to enjoying our Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey is that it should be done responsibly. Color: Golden amber. Aroma: Spice, tea, hint of peppermint. Taste: Spicy, peppery, honey, light-bodied, gentle bite. Finish: Dry, clean, brief.
