One of the bars I worked in Makers Mark was my "well" whiskey.

Anybody know anything about "Basil Hayden's" bourbon?

A friend gave me a bottle for my birthday. I like it.

I like it and have more than a few of the copper bands lying around. 
It has a nice spicy finish from the rye in the mash.

Yes, Basil Hayden’s is one of my favorite bourbons. It has a large % of rye in the mash along with the corn, which gives BH a bit of spiciness to complement the sweetness of the corn mash.

Basil Hayden's is one of my very favoritist of bourbons.  I gave a bottle to a friend from Phoenix at YPG and he drinks nothing else now.  I mean, if you offer him a taste of something else, he'll probably try it, but he has purchased no other whiskey than Basil Hayden's since I gave him that bottle.  
It is a exceptional distillation.

Perfect "end" to a perfect New Year's Day... 
cooked a 2" thick grain-fed, Angus beef rib-eye steak with black-eyed peas, with a very nice merlot(my wife keeps telling me we should open a restaurant).  While cooking I did some target practice at 30 meters with my S&W M22A-1 and FN 5.7.  
Finished off with Taylor Fladgate Port and a Partagas Limited Edition Lonsdale cigar... 
So far, retirement is looking pretty good...

Currently enjoying a small smackeral of Johnny Walker Select Casks.  This is a blend of 10 year old whiskies aged in oak, finished in rye whiskey casks.  It is very complex, spicy with strong tones of vanilla that carries through the finish.  It is a favorite of mine.
Get some... you'll like it.

Eduardo, don't you think it is a LITTLE EARLY for rum???

Vodka with a beer back is much better this time of day.
