Basil Hayden’s 10 Year Bourbon



Classification: Straight Bourbon

Company: Beam Suntory

Distillery: Jim Beam

The aroma is less floral than I find standard Basil Hayden’s to be, with oak coming through more predominantly. Sadly, the low proof results in a lack of overall depth.

Mashbill: 63% Corn, 27% Rye, 10% Malted Barley
750.0ml bottle – from $69.99 


Basil Hayden’s. Bail Hayden’s 10 Year Bourbon is a special, extra aged seasonal offering that will be made available as a limited edition whiskey each holiday season. Bottled at 80 proof, the extra maturation of this high rye bourbon in American oak barrels 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.

Like its younger sibling, Basil Hayden’s 10 Year’s finish is short and almost nonexistent, ending almost as soon as it starts. Light oak dominates with an ever-so-slight touch of sweetness. For a 10 year old bourbon the lack of depth is surprising and unfortunate.
