Another Basil Hayden Line extension... 10 year

Can't wait for the $100 price tag.

(No, I have no info. Just cynical guessing.)

Who knows to their credit all of the BH releases (at least in the markets I shop in) have been the same price $40-$50ish

I wanna know where the 107 proof, single barrel for private selection BH is that we heard about when picking at Beam a few years back.  I was all geeked up about that. 

 

The extra age won't hurt it, but the 80 proof doesn't get me excited.

so they dropped the age statement a few years ago just to bring out an older release...I'll pick one up as Basil is a pour I often give to people who are new to bourbon...assuming it isn't crazy priced.

Interesting that they listed BOTH distilleries - Frankfort (14 where OGD is made) and good old Clermont (230).  Does JB usually list them both even if not called for?  BH IIRC is ALL OGD mash bill from Frankfort.  Will this be a mix?

Hmmmmm.   Good question, Harry.    Gotta wonder.     I can't imagine another good reason for using TWO DSP #'s...

Well, while wondering, I did an advanced search on the ttb COLA public registry and determined that Beam seems to list BOTH distilleries on EVERY KSB application.  Hence, I guess they list them both just in case . . .

 

Unless some SBer has visited Beam's Frankfort and heard otherwise, I'm betting OGD (and BH) is only made there.

 

EDIT - Whatever, Id try at least one BH 80 proof 10YO.

OGD lists both as well at least this bottle of 86 proof does.

Pure speculation: distilled in Frankfort but bottled in Clermont?

According to the back of an orange cap BIB bottle the opposite, distilled at 230 and bottled at 14

Sorry - pretty sure I got it backwards and Frankfort is storage and bottling only.  According to a nice news release in NOV 2016 by WAVE Channel 3 in Frankfort, Beam opened a huge rackhouse in Frankfort near its bottling line.  Beam's Frankfort facility GM is quoted.  The story lists its distilleries as in Clermont (Bullitt County) and Boston (Nelson County), KY.  Full PR here:  http://www.wave3.com/story/33632517/beam-suntory-opens-new-bourbon-warehouse-in-frankfort/
