Revue de Bourbon Podcast - Basil Hayden Rye
Dusty and Wayne return to the podwaves after a brief hiatus/sabbatical with a brand new episode! The whiskey up for review is a two for one, Basil Hayden Rye and Dark Rye. Long-time listener and second time caller Brian phones in and consfuses everyone. We also have the privilage to ask the man himself, Mr. Merideth Basil Hayden Sr., 20 questions in a new segment called "20 Questions with a Famous Person". Theres also whiskey filled chocolates from Andalusia Whiskey Co., a Christmas themed Quickdraw, and much much more!! Tasting Notes - Rye (Exclusive Release) - Nicely balanced yet not quite achieving the rye punch we were looking for. Although once again Basil Hayden comes through with a very flavorful 80 proof whiskey. Like its bourbon contemporary, the Rye has a lot to offer with strong but suble hints of orange, ginger, and perhaps a sprinkling of baseball mit leather. "...i've never had it." - Caller Brian "A beautiful rye finish." - Wayne Dark Rye - Not just a clever name, it's dark, and delicious. If you like port then you will certainly be pleased with this new product from Basil Hayden. The rich bitter raisiny sweetness of the California port is a nice juxtaposition to the spiciness of the rye. Best enjoed with an ice cube after dinnner. "It's almost refreshing!" - Wayne "I'm going to pour a little bit more." - Dusty
