  • Excerpt: I would love to see this Basil Hayden’s Bourbon 10 Years instead done as a limited edition 10 yo Old Grand-Dad BiB or, dare I even dream, a limited edition OGD 114 release.

  • Excerpt: Maybe I'm too used to over-proof whiskeys, but this is positively sessionable; just "easy." It's not a whiskey that invites deep analysis or hard thinking. It's for when you just want to focus on the conversation.

  • Excerpt: The light-bodied palate delivers modest apricot, peppery oak, and vanilla, with sandalwood on the finish. Very nice flavors, just a bit timid.

  • Excerpt: At just 40% abv it's quite enjoyable to sip, though a higher proof might have helped to make this limited release feel a little more special.

  • Excerpt: The finish on this bottling hit me as decidedly short, with the spice and barrel notes quickly fading away into nothing. It’s quite a letdown.
