A ten year-old Straight Rye that you will make you sit, sip, and savor.
Jim Beam Distillery — the integral part of mega-corp Beam Suntory — is one of the largest Bourbon producers in the world. Seven generations of the Beam Family have worked the stills there since 1795. The Jim Beam Distillery makes an unusually large number of offerings for it’s core Jim Beam line and several brands, including Red Stag, Jacob’s Ghost, and a selection of higher end "small batch" Bourbons — Baker’s, Basil Hayden’s, Knob Creek, and our Bourbon of the day, Booker’s.
Some people want a blast-your-head-off with Rye spice dram. Basil Hayden's 10 Year Old Rye Whiskey is NOT that kind of a Rye. Hey, we get it. Sometimes you want a rocket-ship, especially to balance the sweet in some cocktails. But Basil Hayden's 10 Year Old Rye is a new release that’s more sit-sip-and-savor or pour me a Manhattan kind of dram. Make no mistake, this is a real, thoroughly well-crafted Whiskey. It just has all the right spice in all the right places to make it the perfect end-of-the-day shot for Rye fans at 40% ABV. And we think that is a perfectly good thing.
