Jim Beam introduced the famous Small Batch line to a market that seldom looked above the bottom shelf in 1992. Basil Hayden was a standout in that release and remains a go-to pour for anyone looking to transition from low-cost to high-end bourbon. By designing a completely new mash bill for the nearly 30-year-old brand, the Basil Hayden line is thinking big once more. The new bourbon is made with standard rye, with the addition of American-grown brown rice for increased sweetness and less spice. The new spirit gets its name from a secondary toasted barrel finish that brings forth aromas of caramelized sugar. The new permanent expression comes in familiar bottles with an updated monogrammed belt that pays homage to the metal hoops seen on bourbon barrels.
