Notes from the Distillery:
Blending is an art form, and our Dark Rye is your chance to own what might very well be a masterpiece.
It all begins with Kentucky Rye, providing a firm foundation of spice, oak, dried fruit and subtle molasses undertones for this release to build upon. From there, Canadian Rye from our award-winning Alberta Distillery is skillfully layered in. A touch of California Port, and its complementary notes of ripe fruit, provides the third and final layer to a whiskey just as at home on the rocks as it is in a cocktail.
Full in flavor, yet delicately nuanced, you’d be wise to grab a bottle of our Dark Rye to experience this magical blend for yourself.
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."
