"A medium burnt caramel color in the glass, Basil Hayden's approximately eight years is apparent in its rich color. Corn bread, menthol, and dark fruit hit first on the nose, followed by figgy pudding, stewed plums, and cinnamon, highlighting a very slight pepper and punch. A spiced, minty, delicate nose to be sure. Baking spice and Christmas scents are present, but do not overwhelm the light body. The dram is silky, with roasted pear, baked walnut-stuffed apples, and baking spice warming the front of the palate. Neither corn, oak, or char pull Basil Hayden in one particular direction, making for an incredibly balanced drinking experience. A very soft, smooth mouth feel is rounded out by cinnamon and golden raisin. Both complex and balanced, the bourbon's high rye mash bill doesn't overwhelm it, rather making for a nuanced flavor profile. The finish is vegetal, with celery and savory polenta present. A short, not too sweet finish. Again very soft and light." 91 points, Savannah Weinstock, The Whiskey Wash
