Basil Hayden Toast
Basil Hayden Toast
Basil Hayden Toast is a unique expression of bourbon reimagined. It’s unlike anything else out there, because it’s made with a whole new method. As the latest permanent, ultra-premium expression in the Basil Hayden Family, Toast offers a fresh perspective on traditional bourbon. Replacing the traditional rye grain with brown rice, Toast delivers a softer, sweeter bourbon with a touch less spice. The product undergoes a secondary finish in toasted barrels that have been exposed to a long, gentle heat before flash charring, giving it an increased depth of flavor grounded in vanilla and caramel. The toasted bourbon is then blended with traditional Basil Hayden before bottling for an even more engaging and complex taste. Basil Hayden Toast is ideally served in light aperitif-style sipping cocktails that complement the spice and versatility of the liquid. It can also be enjoyed neat or on the rocks.
SCENT & FLAVOR
Deep colour, almost opaque.
Aroma of excellent complexity, with wild bush and spicy notes like curry, pepper and ginger, red berries and black fruits mixed with a light cacao touch, the result of a good maturation, along with a slightly stony finish.
On the palate it has a powerful attack, with a lively acidity, firm and well present tannins, wild bush and red berry notes, with an extremely long finish and great concentration.
“Thanks to the characteristics and potential of the vineyards at Quinta do Seixo, it was possible to cut through the strong maturations of this year's harvest. As a result, we produced very balanced and robust wines, with aromatic notes typical of more mature years.” - Luís Sottomayor, head of Sogrape's winemaking
Quinta do Seixo Vintage is a unique expression of this renowned estate, where a combination of soil, slope inclination, sun exposure and reduced amount of available water contribute to the production of intense and complex wines.The 100-year-old vines producing Port create wines full of intensity, character and freshness.
