Basil Hayden's Caribbean Reserve Rye

Tasted June 2019 ~ 80 proof

Maple syrup!! There are hints of rye on the back end. Each sniff builds more and more of an image of blueberry pancakes with maple syrup. Intrigued. 

There are dominant sweet notes that lead the way: brown sugar and molasses. The spice notes are subtle but they’re there. Nutmeg and cinnamon come out and combine with the molasses notes creating tasting profiles similar to a popular “spiced rum”. 

Bourbon for dessert?

This has a lot of sweet notes. To some it could be overpowering. To others it may make for a nice after-dinner "snack". 

Dominant Flavors:

Sweet. Syrup. Baking spices. SWEET!
