Basil Hayden tells BourbonBlog.com its award-winning whiskey portfolio with the launch of a new permanent expression, Basil Hayden Malted Rye. They say that Basil Hayden Malted Rye delivers an approachable, unexpected softness rarely seen in rye whiskey.
Light amber in color, the 100% malted rye mash bill imparts a union of flavors. Malted Rye offers an elegant floral aroma, soft notes of vanilla & toasted rye on the palette, and a warm spice finish. Bottled at
80-proof, Malted Rye is a permanent offering that Basil Hayden Toast as a super-premium permanent addition to the portfolio.
It will hit the shelves nationwide in September 2023 with a suggested retail price of $59.99/750mL.
Crafted by eighth-generation master distiller Freddie Noe, this special release is created using a distinct malting process that transforms the rye grain to create a more subtle, mellow spice with delicate sweet
and floral notes.
This offering shines a light on what whiskey can be and invites consumers to explore the more refined side of rye, with the liquid delicately poised between Basil Hayden’s signature smooth taste
profile and the spicier notes of rye.

introducing an entirely new flavor profile within the whiskey category,” eighth-generation master distiller Freddie Noe tells BourbonBlog.com
“It delivers a more refined side, an unexpected softness, and approachability, creating a new way to experience rye”.
