    Easily the best in the Basil Hayden line-up so far . Easy enjoyable sipper that is a great entry way into ryes . That being said, isn’t so simple that it’s without its merits . Came in the top 3 of a blind rye flight for our group of 8 bottles against a strong lineup of rye big boys names , for example beating out baby saz and templeton rye . 3rd behind AE rye and Michters rye

    Came in middle of the pack on Wheat bottle flight of 10 different bottles for me. Heavy notes of toasted corn flakes on the nose . Palate is similar with heavy corn notes and wet burlap . Finish soften enough to show notes of almonds. Does have a long finish so if this is your flavor profile , then it’s worth a try . Unfortunately of the 10 of us tasters I gave it the most credit. So disappointing since I usually enjoy Smooth Ambler offerings

    I wanted to like this more. And expected to like this more than I did . I feel WT 101 and Rare Breed are totally overlooked. Great products at their price , so I thought the single barrel selection from WT would follow suit. Decent pour but very average. Found myself trying to find something special, but while a respectable bottle , nothing I could find to make me buy this again . Will stay with their 101 and rare breed

    Heat hit liked a ton of bricks , but after your mouth adjusts it’s a very good pour . Nice Orange peel and bright cherry notes highlight this pour. Nice different expression from earlier barrell batches

    Interesting. The nose was initially unusual and perplexing . I knew nothing of the multiple barreling at the time and as a result my initial nosing confused me. Smells of cigar ash and dark jammy fruits . The palate has flavors of sherry and stewed plums . After seeing the barreling procedures, it definitely makes sense now . I can’t say I either loved or hated this . I found it intriguing probably more so than enjoyable. That’s not to say I won’t return to try this again and actually looking forward to trying it again soon when I can spend more time with it

    Nice pour . Drinks at much lower proof . Notes of vanilla and oak . Unfortunately a solid pour with little faults , but also nothing remarkable to justify the bottle cost
