Basil Hayden Subtle Smoke features the same high-rye mash bill that Basil Hayden loyalists know and love, but uses secondary aging to deliver a unique, layered flavor with a refined hint of smokiness.

Basil Hayden begins by toasting and lightly charring the secondary barrel. This is followed by delicately igniting hickory-smoked chips at a constant feed to produce smoke, which is then pumped into the barrel, resulting in notes of soft char and light butterscotch. This unique flavor provides a smoother, more subtle take on smoky spirits, and creates the perfectly sophisticated, yet approachable introduction to both bourbon and Basil Hayden.

Product Details

Tasting Notes: Basil Hayden Subtle Smoke
Vital Stats: 40% ABV. 80 proof. Basil Hayden liquid transferred into a second toasted barrel pumped with hickory smoke and matured for another six months. 750ml $49.99.

Color: Coppery hazelnut

Nose: The nostrils are immediately greeted with bright lemon oil and acetone. Cinnamon sneaks up dryly and fills out the middle. I really had to nose deep to find more to it. However, once I did, I found baby powder and subtle mint. It has a slight barbecue aroma to it.

Palate: At the beginning, bitter oak and tannins touch the tongue first with a bit of acetone. The whiskey is very dry and full of cinnamon and black pepper. The subtle smoke in the name is just that…subtle. The smoke only pops out on the breath during the finish with a little bit of honey. Overall, it drinks like over-steeped Lipton tea.
