Member Reviews and Ratings of Basil Hayden's Bourbon
Great bourbon with a touch of rye. Vanilla and caramel. Less sweet than most bourbons, not as sharp as some rye. Great drink.
Drinkable but wouldn't buy a bottle
Pleasant but lacking something
Definitely could taste the caramel and herbs and sweet notes. It’s has one of the smoothest finishes without a huge bite at the end.
Fantastic Bourbon. Go to. If your a bourbon fan you won't regret buying a bottle.
My go to daily dram
Smooth, loving drinking on the rocks.
Smooth and one of my favorites. Great flavor and a must try!
Oh my, the nose is very nice. Fresh, not stuffy banana as I tend to think bourbon is. Cherry! Bubblegum? Something pink, cotton candy?
Those carry on to the taste. Still sweet and fresh, what a different bourbon experience after basic Jim Beam or something. Evaporates pretty quickly though, without leaving much behind, except some pleasant woody tingles.
I personally like beefier spirits in general, but this wins me over despite of that, what a pleasant surprise.
Very tasty, honestly one of my favorite bourbons. Complex but enjoyable taste
Solid all around performer, great nose, a little spicy and smooth. A little low at 40% but nice and tasty.
Well made bourbon, I liked it. But it did not produce any special memories. Anyway, a good pick for the price
Very rye forward, it comes off as too earthy for me. Tasted very one note.
Easy for drinking on the rocks or neat. Nice start, but a little disappointing finish - rather short and dry with some herbs at the end. Just a proper, smooth bourbon. For those who really appreciate smoothness, I would go with 8.
Smooth sipping bourbon. Low alcohol, sweet taste with no bitterness.
Meh, it’s fine. Not particularly complex. Sweet cinnamon and rye tasting with a short finish that maybe has that tea taste indicated in the flavor spiral. Nothing special here
Smooth and easy. Great taste
Sweet with hints of caramel at first followed by spices and an almost burnt taste on the verge of being unpleasant. Rather one-dimensional with a disappointing short finish.
Smooth, could easily drink in large quantities.
Very present rye. Sweet from the beginning. Caramelly bourbon like after taste. Smooth, easy, light and enjoyable.
One word smooooooth
Not as robust as, say, Booker’s within the Beam brand. But then it isn’t intended to be (note 80 proof). The rye is personally appreciated, but for the seasoned bourbon drinker the finish is likely too short. Very smooth nonetheless, and would highly recommend for those new to bourbon.
I liked this one - it’s smooth and drinkable neat. Gently sweet, and easy. Maybe a slight orange zest?
That's a really great "every day" bourbon, very smooth and enjoyable.
Smooth! Really enjoyable, like light through cathedral glass.
Never go wrong with Basil Hayden, always my go too. Has a bit of a burn at the beginning but finishes with a smooth smokey taste.
Great flavor, hits slowly
Consistent bottle after bottle.... caramel finish, very smooth
Perfect blend of smooth and spice for a dangerously drinkable high rye bourbon. It’s the first bourbon I truly enjoyed drinking neat. And having several at a sitting happily. Well not the first. Michters all American was the first. But this is just smooth. If you try it you won’t be disappointed and if you like it try michters all American if you can find it.
This bourbon has been at the top of my list for a LONG time. It delivers every single pour and will never disappoint.
You can drink it neat, on the rocks or as a first-class cocktail and you'll always be satisfied. With that said, I'd strongly recommend drinking this neat with a splash of water to let it open up and do what a great bourbon does.
All around it's a very smooth drink with a slight bite to remind you that you're drinking a top notch bourbon. It drinks like a bottle 2-3x's it's price point.
Smooth average goto daily bourbon.
A strong woody punch, with a long caramel finish. This is a drink to sip on your couch and relax with.
It is an outstanding, intense, Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey with a spicy birth, & complex life that leads to a quick & dry death.
Find it on sale sometimes. Killer whiskey for the price.
Good classic bourbon. Nothing special but always drinkable, any way. Best bourbon for mixing.
This is my FAVORITE bourbon (for now)! Super smooth, a touch of sweetness and light. Very easy to drink.
Very smooth and just delicious. Tried this a couple of years ago and now finally got my hands on it! Thanks Flaviar.
