Sazerac Straight Rye
Well I suppose I should review it first!
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 Bottling Note
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 Originally, he sold bottles of the Sazerac cocktail, which was originally made with Cognac.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.
Not for the faint hearted

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.

Beautiful rye, one of my favourite whiskeys, lovely and smooth and sweet with no bite that some ryes and bourbon have.

We had this at one of the Manchester Whisky club tastings and I was really impressed. A supple rye yet with firm flavours including orange, ginger, lots of spice and a tickle of dark chocolate. Yum

Second only to Rittenhouse as my favourite rye bourbon, the flavour is exactly as the previous reviewer described and it definitely stands apart from other bourbons in terms of quality and flavour. Top class!

A very interesting whiskey.
I took a sip and there was very little flavour at all then !BOOM! the tip of my tongue got hit by an intensely spicy, orangey and syrupy blast, focused at the tip of the tongue. Long after the whiskey has been swallowed the spices and orange tingle on the tip of your tongue.
I definitely recommend this, never tried anything like it before!
