Basil Hayden Caribbean Reserve Rye With its trademark spicy finish from a high-rye recipe, Basil Hayden® Bourbon has always been known for standing out in the crowd. Inspired by that legacy, Basil Hayden is excited to deliver another distinctive whiskey experience with the introduction of its latest limited-edition release - Basil Hayden Caribbean Reserve Rye™.
Crafted as an approachable whiskey expression to enjoy during the warm summer months, Basil Hayden Caribbean Reserve Rye takes inspiration from the sweet and spicy contrast between rye whiskey and rum. The limited-time offering features a blend of 8-year-old Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey and 4-year-old Canadian Rye Whisky, which bring to life layers of flavor, including distinct spice, toasted oak and vanilla notes. The blend is then finished with the addition of Black Strap Rum which ties the rye whiskey pairing together with sweet notes of brown sugar and molasses. The result is a balanced whiskey that remains approachable to discover at 80 proof.
Basil Hayden Caribbean Reserve Rye is the latest in a series of successful rye whiskey innovations from the brand, each of which push the limits of category convention to bring something unexpected to whiskey fans.
