Basil Hayden's 10 Year Bourbon Review

Amid a trend for high-proof cask-strength offerings, Basil Hayden’s sticks true to its 80 proof roots. Featuring Jim Beam's high rye mash bill, the nose and palate are loaded with caraway and spice notes. Ten years in barrel have built up layers of complexity not typically found at this strength, including an attractive nuttiness and hints of leather. This is a remarkable bourbon — just don’t add ice.
