With a unique blend of two Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskies and two Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskies, Basil Hayden’s Two by Two Rye offers a keen taste on the best of both worlds for whiskey drinkers – spiciness from the rye complimented by the sweet finish of bourbon.
Balanced by 5-year-old Kentucky straight rye, a 7-year-old “high-rye,” and a mixture of a 13-year old and 6-year-old Kentucky straight bourbon, the result is a unique whiskey that stands above the rest in the blended category. It remains approachable by most to taste at a modest 80-proof.
This limited run by Basil Hayden’s is complimenting their growth in the super-premium bourbon market. Basil Hayden’s has seen a surge in popularity as of recent. This surge has prompted growth and a popular following – one of the fastest growing brands out of the Beam Suntory.
“Basil Hayden’s has always been known for its distinctive spicy finish, so innovating in the rye category continues to be an exciting venture for the brand, especially as interest in the category grows exponentially,” said Rob Mason, vice president of marketing at Beam Suntory. “While Basil Hayden’s Two by Two Rye upholds our trademark spice and approachability, this blend also challenges the status quo and encourages fans to discover the versatility of rye.”
Best enjoyed sipping neat or on the rocks, Basil Hayden’s Two by Two is a bold golden honey color. Aromas of rich caramel and brown sugar are perfectly balanced by a top-shelf feeling from the rye profile. Put together, the Two by Two offers a smooth, medium-bodied experience.
