Product Description

Let friends and loved ones experience rye like never before by treating them to a delectable bottle of the Basil Hayden Dark Rye Whiskey.

First hitting store shelves in 1992, Basil Hayden serves as one of Jim Beam’s four small-batch brands catering to the high-end market. While relatively young brand-wise, it traces its origins to the 18th-century when Meredith Basil Hayden Sr. decided to use rye-heavy mash to create his whiskey. Fast forward a century later and rye still remains a centerpiece in their whiskeys while also continuing to explore the boundaries of what’s possible with the grain through newer specialty expressions that supplement the inherently spicy character of the grain.

Crafted primarily as a way to introduce rye whiskey to a much larger audience, the Basil Hayden Dark Rye Whiskey starts out as a blend of Kentucky straight rye, Canadian rye, and California port wine. After being meticulously married to give its individual components time to shine, the whiskey bottled at a slightly lower proof to create a robust yet perfectly approachable expression that works exceptionally well in introducing the uninitiated to the joys of rye.

Let them savor each sip of this lovely chestnut-colored whiskey starting with its welcoming nose of rye spice, green apple, dried fruits, fresh leather, and toasty oak followed by a complex and rich palate of port, more dried fruits, caramel, more oak, and subtle hints of rye, all tied together by a lingering finish of sweet fruit and yes, even more rye spiciness.

Great for sipping and even better of mixing, the Basil Hayden Dark Rye Whiskey is a superb whiskey expression that is guaranteed to be appreciated by your recipient. So send a bottle today, whether as a way to express your gratitude or just to show your generosity, and let them enjoy a rye expression unlike any other.
