Basil Hayden Dark Rye Whiskey is a limited release that blends classic Kentucky Rye rich with oak, spice and dried fruit notes with Canadian Rye from the award-winning Alberta Distillery, adding unique depth and a viscous mouthfeel. It is then finished with a touch of CA port for juicy ripe fruit notes.
This unique rye whiskey provides depth to the notes of dried fruit and a more viscous mouth feel than a traditional rye. It’s then finished with a touch of California Port blended in directly to add complementary juicy, ripe fruit without muddying the existing wood notes.
The end result is a whiskey full in flavor and still delicately nuanced.
Basil Hayden Dark Rye is always perfect sipped on the rocks as well as in a Boulevardier.
