It is pretty fly Kentucky Rye.

Right before the 19th century started, one Basil Hayden left Maryland and moved to Kentucky. Now, he was no rookie; he was a Master Distiller already, but he didn't know the rules of the Old Guard, so he used what he had on hand. He created a new breed of Bourbon with a high-rye mash bill and while the purists threw a few malocchios, the neighbors were mesmerized. Now, over two centuries later, the Noe family brings back the revolutionary devil-may-care recipes of Basil Hayden.

Their Dark Rye is a masterful blend with a fantastic twist: Kentucky Rye brings a baseline of spice and oak, while Canadian Rye takes the flavor further. And because Basil Hayden's are spoiling us, they put a bit of Californian Port in the mix. Not a Port finish, they added it. The result is a delicious Whiskey that is great both neat or in cocktails. But you know, try it neat first and submerge yourself into the delicate flavor.

I'm not a rye lover - or heck, not even much of a whiskey drinker. At least I wasn't until this Basil Hayden Dark Rye. This port-finished dark rye is amazing. If I could find it, I'd buy 10 cases of it right now. Seriously, it really is that good.

Mike,
Nose is oak and berries the port comes through here. Pretty smooth not typical rye spice more of a citrus spice. The finish is All port sweet and fruity. Not going in my regular rotation will reserve for cocktails.

Dane,
I just love this dark rye blend and I'm not normally a big dark rye guy. It's a very smooth drink and has become one of my favorite nightcaps. The only problem I have with this bottle is that I can't find another anywhere near me!
