This week at Sommwhere Basil Hayden Subtle Smoke was toasted and sipped on a blissful afternoon on the Lower East Side.
American Whiskey Ambassador Tim Heuisler guided guests through a tasting that showcased the new Basil Hayden Subtle Smoke highlights that include the same high-rye mash bill that Basil Hayden loyalists know and love. All this and more in the glass is found with a refined hint of smokiness.
Serving Subtle Smoke neat or on the rocks allows the mellow smoke and sweet vanilla notes to shine while complementing the spicy rye flavors typical to Basil Hayden bourbon’s high-rye mash bill.
At 80 proof, Subtle Smoke is light enough to examine on the palate without the burn typically associated with higher-proof or overly smoky spirits.
