Basil Hayden’s Caribbean Reserve Rye
Save Liquid error (product-badge line 32): -Infinity%
A Limited Release blend of Kentucky straight rye, Canadian rye, and a small amount of blackstrap molasses rum from the Caribbean. The black strap announces its presence with a deep mahogany color in the glass, as well as a first impression on the nose of molasses followed by dark brown sugar, burnt caramel, and cotton candy.
On the palate big flavors develop, graham cracker pie crust speckled with brown sugar, baking spices, and a hint of vanilla. The finish shows oak, vanilla, and more molasses. After the vanilla and oak fade, the molasses lightly lingers for an incredibly long time for a finish that ends on a high note.
