The march of Basil Hayden whiskey releases continues with one more particular expression, this one beginning with normal Basil Hayden bourbon, then ending it in California pink wine casks. There’s no data on the ending course of (or a lot else) past that descriptor, so let’s merely dive in.

The dissonance right here is fast. The nostril is nice and fruity — some cherry and a few strawberry — however undercut with an emphatic, doughy observe of unbaked bread, nearly yeasty. There are notes of vanilla and chocolate to be discovered, however they’re gentle, fairly tempered on the entire, as if one thing is protecting them in verify. The palate shifts the image, to make certain. Right here that doughy character reveals its darker, woodier underbelly, and pink wine tannin rapidly comes flooding into the image. Bitter and pushy, a char-heavy observe clings to the again of the throat, rising notes of grape skins and cloves forcing these parts to double down. Issues get much more hoary with time in glass, the pink wine parts actually starting to dominate alongside notes of torched wooden, toasted sesame seeds, and cabernet jelly. Regardless of glimpses of chocolate, vanilla, and even some toasted coconut alongside the way in which, the whiskey stays robust and tight on the end.

Followers of different Basil Hayden whiskeys gained’t see a lot household resemblance right here.

80 proof.
