Basil Hayden announced this week the release of its newest limited edition, Basil Hayden Red Wine Cask Finish.
Created by eighth-generation master distiller Freddie Noe, this expression blends the signature Basil Hayden Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey with bourbon partially aged in Californian red wine casks. Per the brand, the vanilla and charred oak notes of classic Basil Hayden intertwine with flavors of dried fruit and sweet nectar imparted by the red wine cask for a layered, complex, yet approachable result.
Tasting Notes (Brand Provided)
Rich amber and toasted brown hues make for a warm welcome into the whiskey, which then gives way into aromas of dried fruit notes with cherry, vanilla, and toasted oak on the nose. Upon the first sip, flavors of sweet ambrosia are complemented by complex levels of charred oak. Rounded off with a warm, crisp finish, the highly versatile flavor profile of Basil Hayden Red Wine Cask Finish makes it ideal for serving in aperitif-style cocktails.
Hitting shelves alongside the annual release of Basil Hayden’s 10-Year, Basil Hayden Red Wine Cask Finish arrives just in time for the holidays. This limited-time release will be available nationwide at a suggested price of $59.99/750mL. To discover more about Basil Hayden visit www.basilhaydenbourbon.com.
