Customer Rating

Created in 1796 by Basil Hayden, who went against the grain (no pun intended) by adding in rye into the traditional corn-based mashbill. It was a huge hit and today is one of Jim Beam's 'Small Batch' range of bourbons.

    Was delighted to have been able to track this down after an extended absence due to a general difficulty to obtain this in the UK. To give you a comparison, I have been a dedicated drinker of Woodford's Reserve for almost 20 years. And yes... Am very familiar with Makers Mark, Knob Creek, Four Roses, Blanton's, Hudson's etc... and truly adore them all. But for me... The silky smoothness and depth of flavours that just keep coming, are a signature of Basil Haydon. Like an Angel kissing your neck as it slips down your throat. Don't let the price fool you. This is top-drawer bourbon... Definitely one to treat yourself and educate your friends! Enjoy.

    Smooth tasting bourbon. Hints of Southern Comfort without the cloying sweetness. Subtle notes of vanilla and orange.
