A bourbon based on a recipe from 1796, when Basil Hayden himself was a master distiller. Hayden was born and raised in Maryland, where he learned to make whisky from rye. When he came to Kentucky, Hayden began making whiskey from a base of corn, but added a higher percentage of rye than other distillers, resulting in a smooth, mild bourbon that was distinctly his own.

Other reviews... Light amber color. Sweet corn, toffee, nuts and charred wood aromas have a lean edge. Round, vibrant entry leads to a dry medium-to full-bodied palate with somewhat lean oak, corn, and caramel flavors. Finishes with a warm wave of toffee, spice, and drying wood.

...Interesting that the label says “Artfully Aged,” yet there’s no actual age statement. Lively nose, good rye snap and spice, a bit of mint and oaky edge. Not hot, well-behaved on the tongue, and happily gives back everything taken on the nose. Sweet, spicy, and easy to like, this is whiskey without flaw, well-done and tasty, if not overly ambitious or challenging. 85 points - whiskyadvocate.com, Reviewed by: Lew Bryson (Fall 2014)

...Pretty old gold/amber color; superb purity. First whiffs encounter small measures of dusty dry cereal grains and black pepper; another six minutes of air contact unleash slightly grander aromas of saddle leather, toasted marshmallow and cooking spice (tarragon, parsley). Entry is gentlemanly, clean, understated and off-dry; midpalate offers moderately generous tastes of oak resin, English toffee/saltwater taffy and light, fresh honey. Concludes light as a feather and agreeably simple. While I think that this latest incarnation shows some fleeting character and stuffing, I recommend BH solely for bourbon newcomers and NOT for old hand bourbon drinkers who are used to big-hearted, rip-snortin’ whiskey. Veteran bourbon devotees won’t care for it, thinking it feeble. I understand that it was designed specifically for novices and the three people in the U.S. who appreciate ethereal bourbon, which by its nature is meant to be robust. - spiritjournal.com
