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 Originally, he sold bottles of the Sazerac cocktail, which was originally made with Cognac.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.
Awesome rye , live in the land of Alberta premium , but this one stands out there with the best . I have ordered 1 more bottle . only 11 bottles left in BRITISH COLUMBIA .

been through dozens of Bourbons/ryes on the hunt for the perfect rich smooth nectar..this is it. There aren't many that you could glug from the bottle "cowboy" style without a small wince.. but this is so smooth... caramel, orange spice, malt (i know its a rye!).. just a perfect whisky for the price..My favorite Buffalo Trace product ...(and i know all the Winkles)...DO NOT use as a mixer...neat or with a splash is the way

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
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!
