Basil Hayden Subtle Smoke Bourbon
  • Basil Hayden Subtle Smoke Bourbon

    • Clermont (Jim Beam American Stillhouse), Kentucky, USA

      77% corn, 13% rye, and 10% malted barley



      Ever wanted to make smoked Old Fashioneds at home but didn't want to break out the brulee torch and apple wood chips?  Now you don't have to.  Basil Hayden has released their own smoked bourbon.  Taking traditional Basil Hayden, they finish in a second slightly charred barrel (toasted!) and the smoke from hickory-smoked chips is pumped in.  Emphasis on the subtle and the smoke component is never overpowering.  So, while noticeable, maple, cinnamon, butterscotch, and vanilla all take the lead.
