  • Excerpt: There's a lot going on despite its low-ish proof, though it's hard not to wish it had been bottled slightly higher to better showcase the full potential of its aromas and flavors.

  • Excerpt: Unlike it’s mixed bag predecessor bottlings which were best suited for mixing cocktails in my opinion, the Basil Hayden’s 10 Year Old Rye Whiskey can easily stand on it’s own and be served neat to those that love the flavor a good, solid, rye whiskey can provide.

  • Excerpt: It’s quite pleasant but a lot less in-your-face than you might expect from a 10 year old rye — though, depending on the consumer, that may be just what the doctor ordered. I find it perfectly approachable and a solid choice for warm weather sipping.
