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.

Dog Dogson's Smartass corner
Character Dogson
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
