Top reviews for Basil Hayden's Two by Two Rye Whiskey:

— Wow. This blend instantly reserved a place in my favoirites list.

— Exceptionally smooth, flavorful. Hints of spice.

— 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!

A lady's rye!

Charlie,
Perhaps expectations were too high, but weren't met regardless. Give me my old friend BH over this raunchy cousin.

Jamie,
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.

Corey,
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.

Brandon,
Absolutely love this! Great body, smooth finish! Be careful you don't finish the whole bottle in one sitting.
