The latest permanent release from Basil Hayden consists of an entirely new brown rice mash bill and a secondary finish in toasted barrels. The result is a bourbon with less spice, and deepened notes of sweet caramel with a bright, light mouthfeel.
Basil Hayden Toast delivers an intriguing avenue into the warm, refined bourbon sipping occasion. It’s more subtle, more interesting, and ultimately way more approachable, which is exactly what Basil is all about.
This 80 proof whiskey consists of an entirely new mash bill, replacing the traditional rye grain with brown rice, which adds a hint of sweetness and a touch less spice with increased depth of flavour that comes from secondary ageing in a toasted then flash-charred oak barrel.
