Awards for Sazerac Straight Rye
Sazerac Straight Rye Details
Also from Buffalo Trace Whiskey Distillery
Whiskey or Whisky
What's in a name? Sazerac Straight Rye whiskey is called whiskey because it's produced in America. Were it from Scotland it would be spelled Sazerac Straight Rye whisky, rather than whiskey.
Sazerac Straight Rye
STRICTLY 1 PER CUSTOMER
The whiskey is named for the Sazerac Coffee House in New Orleans, birthplace of the famous – and sublime – Sazerac cocktail. The Coffee House was acquired by Thomas H Handy, owner also of Peychaud’s Bitters. Originally, he sold bottles of the Sazerac cocktail, which was originally made with Cognac. Today, this glorious libation is produced at the Buffalo Trace distillery.
A sweet, balanced nose with allspice and ginger, orange peels and pepper. The palate is thick and mouthwatering with syrupy notes of over ripe Seville oranges and ground spices, beautiful delivery. The finish is of medium-length with tingling sweet spices.
How whiskey should be done
I was hoping for some trickle down of the genius that is the Jim Murray whisky of the year; which is one of the most intense taste sensations I have experienced. This is really just very disappointing- it bears no relation to that illustrious drink. Its not bad, it just really offers no reason to invest the time or the money to get to know it, Bland. Huge disappointment, and a lot of money for a cocktail ingredient.

Don't use this to make cocktails
Just got a bottle In at The Albion Winchester
Stunning rye whiskey, quite bowled over by it and a complete punt. Big glass, block of ice, job jobbed. Makes the families insistence on watching x-factor almost bearable, it's that good!

We're storming through it tonight and its outstanding people!!! Don't mix it, touch of ice at the most!

This is a great whiskey to stock in the bar. Excellent straight or in cocktails. I wish they sold an 8 or 10 year old expression of this 6 year old whiskey, and I also think it would be great at 50% abv. That said, for a readily available whiskey, this blows away the basic whiskeys like Jim Beam.

Hi there, unfortunately this is a seasonal release, and it tends to fly off the shelves! Naturally, if you can find any, do give us a tip ;) It will become available again in 2014. --The Chaps at Master of Malt

Hands down best Rye I've had, and from the states second only to Noah's Mill, this is one of the most intense, rich and borderline overwhelmingly spicy whiskies available, the fact it doesn't overpower is what makes it stand out so much. Would say, if you are dipping your toe in bourbon/rye whiskies, maybe start with something a little lighter and progress up.
