Notes from the Distillery:
A special release partially aged in Californian red wine casks.
A blend of the classic Basil Hayden high-rye mash bill and bourbon partially aged in Californian red wine casks, this special release is ripe with cherries & dried fruit, while also delivering characteristic bourbon flavors of vanilla and charred oak. Perfectly balanced, Basil Hayden Red Wine Cask Finish is layered & complex, yet approachable & inviting.
COLOR: Toasted brown with amber hues
AROMA: Dried fruit notes with cherry & vanilla, hint of toasted oak
TASTE: Sweet ambrosia with complex levels of charred oak
FINISH: Warm with a crisp, delicate mouthfeel
"The nose is earthy and herbaceous, evoking charred campfire wood, fresh pine, and hazelnut. With time, strawberries and cream emerge. More wood on the palate. Lemon-ginger kombucha, Lemonheads, and black pepper are also present. That ginger is more muscular on the finish, which harkens back to the nose with notes of pine needle and spearmint." - Whisky Advocate
