Basil Hayden's Dark Rye
|Region||United States, Kentucky|
Color: Deep, rich amber with ruby undertones. Aroma: Oaky notes balanced with dark berries and molasses. Taste: Complex blend of caramel, dried fruit, and oak with back notes of spice and a rounded mouth feel. Finish: Lingering dried fruit with a hint of sweetness and rye spice.
The first permanent addition to the Basil Hayden's portfolio mingles Kentucky straight rye with Canadian rye, plus a splash of Port-style wine from California. All this yields a warming whiskey that leads with caramel and spice on nose and palate, finishing with a hint of cocoa and a distinctly juicy, almost tart cherry note. Sip or mix.
