  • Excerpt: It’s decent, drinkable, and something I wouldn’t mind having in my glass if offered. On the other hand, it’s not a whiskey I’d grab off my shelf on a regular or even semi-regular basis if I had a bottle… don’t even want to snag a bottle like I did the original Basil Hayden’s Rye. Overall, not my thing.

  • Excerpt: It's nice but one wonders if this whiskey might stand out more at a higher proof; at 40 percent ABV it's an approachable introduction to the spirit, but may leave seasoned rye lovers wanting a little more oomph.

  • Publication: Drinkhacker
  • Excerpt: The conclusion is more more cohesive than what’s come before, though the body proper simply comes across as too young to merit its price tag.
