Booker Noe loved Bourbon. He loved the craft of it, the character of it, the “pour me another one and tell me a story” of it. He loved what it could mean and all the things it could be. But most of all he loved the way it tasted.
In Basil Hayden he created the kind of whiskey he loved; spicy yet smooth, both rich and sweet. A high-rye Kentucky straight bourbon with a refined flavor profile that rewards a second glass.
So, in true Kentucky style, let’s get straight to the good stuff.
Our blending team took on the challenge of bringing together rye and bourbon whiskies from our aging stock to create something incredibly balanced - something that embodies the best that both types of whiskey have to offer.
While blending is commonly used in American whiskies to deliver a consistent flavor from bottle to bottle, the art and craft is truly on display when balancing liquids from different origins. It takes immense skill to develop an original recipe and an incredible palette to deliver a final product that is more than the sum of its parts.
The final blend is about 20% bourbon to 80% rye and is best served neat or on-the-rocks to experience the complexity created by meticulously blending four component whiskies.
