World's Best Rye Whisky - 2014
World Whiskies Awards
Best American Rye - 2014
American Rye Whisky 7 Years and Under - 2014
Insider knowledge: Thomas H Handy Sazerac Rye Whiskey - 2013 whiskey is named whiskey by virtue of the fact it's from America. If distilled in Scotland the spelling would be Thomas H Handy Sazerac Rye Whiskey - 2013 whisky, as opposed to whiskey.
Nose: A big, bold hit of spice.
Palate: Spice turns to sweetness of candied oranges and toffees.
Finish: It's back to spice again! Cinnamon and clove lasts.
Overall: Very tasty for sure.
Best Handy ever made.
