Top reviews for Basil Hayden's Dark Rye:

— One of my favorite one-off ryes. The port blend finish on this is amazing. It pairs will with steak and chocolate. What more could you ask for?

— 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.

Definitely unique. The Rye Spice and the port hit at the same time.

Delicious and has many flavors to balance on the tongue. May be a bit on the sweet side for those who like a little bite on the tongue or enjoy the Rye side of whiskey. I treat it like desert and only have one.

Really not that spicy. The sweetness of the caramel and berry flavors really come through. Delicious rye!

Vivek,
As a rye blended with port, expected a more flavorful taste. It has a nice smooth feel to it, although taste to me with port sweetness is closer to a highly refined Tennessee whiskey. The Two by Two likely more in line with my taste.

Matthew,
This might be my favorite rye out there right now. This rye is as complex and sweet. The port barrels truly impart something special into this fine whiskey.

Really liked this one. Very smooth and rich. Didn't taste much like rye, but was still very good.

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.

Smooth! I’ll be stocking this one in the home bar. Very easy to drink, sweet to the nose.

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!
