Basil Hayden’s Rye 10 year old is a tribute to the high rye mash bill used in their classic bourbon. Limited information is available for this release. According to the notes on the bottle, the 10-year aging process creates slightly spicy yet approachable rye that achieves an elegant and complex profile. This spirit was distilled and bottled by Kentucky Springs Distilling Co. in Clermont/Frankfort, KY. This spirit is bottled at 80 proof and has an MSRP of approximately $60.
Appearance: In the glass, it’s akin to a light golden liquid sunshine, if you could actually bottle such a thing.
Nose: Imagine taking Gramma’s semi-famous cinnamon enhanced apple sauce, sticking that in a charred oak barrel, and then sticking your nose in the barrel for a big ole sniff a few days later. It’s kinda like that. Probably.
Palate: Initially what I can best describe as a burnt raisin which then opens up to a rich toffee flavor finishing again with Gramma’s cinnamon applesauce. Not quite semi-famous, but definitely has potential.
