Basil Hayden’s Rye Whiskey, according to those behind it, is a Kentucky straight rye whiskey that’s been influenced by a so-called unique, re-barreled rye. More specifically, this re-barreled rye begins life as a 4-year-old traditional rye, which is then dumped from its aging barrels and further aged an additional seven years in a newly charred quarter cask oak barrels. A portion of it is then blended with traditional Kentucky straight rye whiskey to craft the final product.
Aroma: Warm baking spices and caramel, with hints of wood rye spice
Taste: Charred oak complemented by sweet brown sugar and dried fruit
