Probably one of the best small batch Kentucky straight bourbon whiskeys for the price. Great bourbon with a smooth finish.
When I want a mild but full flavored bourbon to drink after work I always take out a bottle of Basil. Its not a hard drinker, not for the party. For sipping, no shots no ice. I love it.
Palate (undiluted): Light bodied, gentle corn and rye tang, distinctive of bourbon, graces your taste buds like a tiny dancer. Summer easy sweet charcoal, like a wheeping willow tree graced by a light breeze. Caramel flavors hang in the background throughout the tasting. Finish (undiluted): Sweet corn, a little rye warmth, and the flotsam jetsam charcoal/vanilla flavors culminating in some of the mildest spice I have ever experienced in bourbon.
