The holy quaternity of Rye and Bourbon.

One, two, three, four... this is the bottle you were looking for. Granted, we suck at finding rhymes, but we're great at finding awesome Whiskeys. And this limited-release is a delicacy to behold. To create an elusive concoction that offers the spiciness of a rye and the sweetness and finish of a Bourbon, Basil Hayden's magicians came up with a wonderful blend of not two, not three, but four Whiskeys. They blended two Ryes and two Bourbons (hence the name): a five- and seven-year-old Kentucky Straight Ryes, and a 6- and 13-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbons.

What we get is a revolution that smashes the status quo and urges every Whiskey-lover to explore new frontiers. Beyond that frontier, there's an experience full of caramelly and sugary aromas, sweet and spicy flavors and a lingering finish that is simply... Incredible! 

Basil Hayden's distillery has a long history: it was established late in the 18th century by - yes, you guessed it - Basil Hayden. Basil was a self-taught wild card who created his own interpretation of Bourbon, using high-rye mash bill, combining the spiciness of rye with sweetness of corn. He ruffled some purist feathers, but people were loving it. And over 200 years later, you'll love it too.

Ratings & Reviews
Exceptionally smooth, flavorful. Hints of spice.
A lady's rye!
Perhaps expectations were too high, but weren't met regardless. Give me my old friend BH over this raunchy cousin.
It was smooth, as expected for BH, but it just needed more... anything. Reminiscent of wet cardboard. Tasted almost watered down. Definitely not a fan.
For some reviewers below it seems they may have gotten a different part of this blend, and blends like this can vary in quality depending on how the manufacturer handles their blending process and selection. From the nose to the body to the finish, my bottle has been nothing but Sweet and Smooth. The blend of 2 rye and 2 bourbon type whiskeys is an interesting choice, and the smoothness as one reviewer mentioned makes it all to easy to drink in large quantities. This works well on rocks or with a little water to open up the flavors. The taste and profile seem to change over time and mature with a little oxidation so consider letting your bottle breathe a few minutes. Worst part of the experience was the cork!
For the price, this is pretty awful, I am baffled by the positive reviews. The nose let me know I was in for slap in the face, a sip later I got punched in the mouth. It is unbalanced, far from smooth, and finished harsh. I'd expect something like this for $15, not the $50+ it cost. To make sure I didn't get some sort of weird off bottle, I did some searching...and so should you, it just isn't good.
Wow. This blend instantly reserved a place in my favoirites list.
Absolutely love this! Great body, smooth finish! Be careful you don't finish the whole bottle in one sitting.
