Top reviews for Basil Hayden's Bourbon:

— SMOOOOOOOTH!

— Consistent bottle after bottle.... caramel finish, very smooth

— 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.

Michael,
One word smooooooth
 
Lee
Lee,
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.

Cynthia,
I liked this one - it’s smooth and drinkable neat. Gently sweet, and easy. Maybe a slight orange zest?

Gergo,
That's a really great "every day" bourbon, very smooth and enjoyable.

Roxann,
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.

Andy,
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.

A strong woody punch, with a long caramel finish. This is a drink to sip on your couch and relax with.

Antti,
It is an outstanding, intense, Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey with a spicy birth, & complex life that leads to a quick & dry death.

Good classic bourbon. Nothing special but always drinkable, any way. Best bourbon for mixing.
