Basil Hayden lightness and approachability has always been the perfect complement to a great night. This latest permanent release from Basil Hayden consists of an entirely new brown rice mashbill with a secondary finish in toasted barrels. The result is a rich bourbon with less spice, and deepened notes of sweet caramel with a bright, light mouthfeel. This bottle introduces the brand's sophisticated and completely new packing design, featured on all bottles, leaving the inside liquid untouched.
