An experiment gone awesome.
 
Back in the days when George Washington was the first U.S. President and Kentucky State only but 4 years old, Basil Hayden was hard at work experimenting with the inner workings of Bourbon. 
 
“You can take the boy out of Maryland, but not Maryland out of the boy?”….Mr. Hayden’s early exposure to Rye in Maryland gave rise to a certain playful curiosity. Later in Kentucky he started making corn based Bourbon but with a higher percentage of Rye, with the result being a different, smooth Bourbon that to this day remains truly distinctive.
 
Basil Hayden's Bourbon Whiskey has been aged for 8 years in new American oak barrels. It is made from a grain mixture that is more than half corn, the rest is harmony of barley and rye. To add to this there are also a number of finer ingredients that highlight the attention detail of this small batch craftsmanship, but without overly affecting its broader Bourbon appeal. Basil’s Bourbon took risks bucking the prevailing trend 200 years ago, thankfully even today it still stands out as being different and bucking away!

Golden amber.

Spices, more spices with some herbal and tea fragrances.

Dry and rather brief finish with a big bang of refreshing nice cinnamon pepperiness and light vanilla oakiness.

Being creative on many fields he worked with different celebrities and rock stars too, such as Lou Reed & the Velvet Underground, The Rolling Stones and many others. He lived a vivid life, nightlife included which often saw him willfully succumb to one of his favourite drinks, Bourbon
Is it any wonder that his lifelong city of residence, New York also gave birth to the Manhattan cocktail

LD
This is by far the best bourbon I have tasted. Very smooth and refined - can sip it straight up, with ice or mixed with cola. Straight up is the best. Flavor is unlike any other - I keep two bottles on hand at all times now.
Andy
Usually a cognac drinker, this bourbon is my go-to favorite bourbon. Smooth, tasty, refined. Neat or on the rocks, but I've learned that even mixed this drink is not lost.
anonymous
Very tasty. A little light for my liking but definitely enjoyable.
Chris
It goes down very smooth. After taste has a little too much spice than I prefer. Overall, a good product.

Ken
Very smooth overall, easy to sip some sweetness. Meet your new rum and coke.

Good drink, id buy it again and even drink it on a weekly basis. It's a good one to have in your cabinet for sure, perhaps even for non special occasions where you just want a quick drink for the group of people who came over. Good price as well
Benjamin
Perfection ... by far my favorite
Nathan
Simply amazing
Daniel
For its price I find this to be one of the one of the greats! Smooth easy drinking it's one of the bottles of bourbon I recommend to most to people who aren't familiar with bourbon. This bottles an easy "go to" when I don't know what I'm in the mood for. Everyone I've recommended it to has fallen in love.

It is extremely smooth and worth every penny
anonymous
Smooth. Not overbearing.
Garry
The easiest sipping Bourbon I've met. This is the preferred entry point for those looking to start a trek through whisky. Mild flavor of a corn mash bill, low heat, and a history going back the Deadwood, South Dakota.
Jackson
I'm not a fan of the higher rye personally and I found it to be a bit weak in comparison to other Beam small batch offerings
