Basil Hayden’s is one of my favorite affordable bottles for easy drinking. The new Basil Hayden’s 10-Year-Old Bourbon is a special, extra aged limited offering that will be made available each holiday season. Bottled at 80 proof, the extra maturation is said to offer “an additional layer of complexity” that “delivers heightened oak aromas along with hints of char and vanilla while maintaining Basil Hayden’s trademark spice in every sip.” With a suggested price of $60 and a nationwide release, this is one limited edition that’s actually within reach. A 750ml bourbon bottle will fit in a stocking right?
“We wanted to give our fans an expression that could be that ‘special something’ to enjoy when spending time with family and friends over the holidays or when picking out a great gift,” Rob Mason, Vice President of Whiskey at Beam Suntory, said.
