    This is a bourbon that doesn't need notes. A nice bourbon. Period.
    Sweet vanilla and spices on the nose, rather light, little dominant wood.
    Strong, mouth-filling, oak, vanilla, pepper and a nice sweetness.
    Bitter on the finish, oak, some popcorn
    Unspectacular and delicious. Good bourbon with power.

    I snatched up 4 of these bottles on the news that they're doing away with the high proof bottlings; not getting people to pay premiums for them. My buddy is turning 40 in a few months, so we'll be cracking it open to try it then. Sounds good, can't wait to try it.

    It'll be interesting to see if the demand for it drives the price up in the secondary markets. If so, they may bring it back at higher price, but who knows... I'm drinking mine anyway. I paid $32usd which i felt was a bargain (12-12-2016).

    This is Basil Hayden's at 4 years age, uncut-- at 114 proof*...funny how I love this, yet I wouldn't drink Basil Hayden's for free. OGD...the only distillery Beam bought, who's mash bill Booker respected enough not to change to their own family recipe . Hopefully, Fred keeps it going...the price is scheduled to change but is very low to date (11-02-15)...it's not just good for the price-- it's just plain GOOD. Loves a bath. Best 4 year old bourbon I've ever had-- hands down.

    *Basil Hayden's is made from the OGD mash bill
