93 Points The Tasting Panel :"Sweet toasted vanilla nose; smooth and floral with lovely toasted oak and spice; elegant medium weight and showing a long balanced finish; an exquisite bourbon that should appeal to scotch drinkers." Basil Hayden, Sr. first began distilling his whiskey almost 200 years ago. This bourbon combines a spicy, peppery flavor with a dry, clean finish due to the high percentage of rye in the mash.

Notes on the Basil Hayden's Bourbon 8 Year Old 80@ 750ML

Wine Maker Notes The Basil Hayden’s bourbon brand is named in honor of Basil Hayden, Sr., who was a Maryland Catholic that led a group of twenty-five Catholic families from Maryland into what is now Nelson County, Kentucky (near Bardstown) in 1785. This area is home to many of the famous bourbon brands, including Jim Beam. There Hayden donated the land for the first Catholic church west of the Alleghenies and the first Catholic church in what is now the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Hayden was also a distiller, and he used a larger amount of rye in his mash than in some other bourbons. Later, Hayden’s grandson Raymond B. Hayden[citation needed] founded a distillery in Nelson County and named his label “Old Grand-Dad” in honor of his grandfather. The picture on the bottle was copied from a rendering of Basil Sr.’s likeness. When Beam Industries introduced their “small batch” collection, among the four was “Basil Hayden’s”, which the company says uses a mash similar to that originally utilized by Hayden in 1792.

Technical Notes The recipe of this remarkable bourbon dates back to 1796, when Basil Hayden himself was a master distiller. Hayden was born and raised in Maryland, where he learned to make whiskey from rye. When he came to Kentucky, Hayden began making whiskey from a base of corn, but added a higher percentage of rye than other distillers, resulting in a smooth, mild bourbon that was distinctly his own.
