Basil Hayden's 10 year old, 40%

Price: $60 Issue: Spring 2019 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

A highlight of the Basil Hayden's line for its cherry cough drop and clove-studded orange flavors that nicely match sweet fruit with spice. There is some intriguing earthiness—suggestions of a mushroom-covered tree stump. The light-bodied palate delivers modest apricot, peppery oak, and vanilla, with sandalwood on the finish. Very nice flavors, just a bit timid.
