Sazerac Straight Rye Bottling Note

If you're a fan of straight rye whiskey, then you'll want to check out Sazerac Straight Rye. This delicious whiskey is made with rye grain and distilled in Kentucky. It's then aged for a minimum of two years in new, charred oak barrels.

Sazerac Straight Rye 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 Originally, he sold bottles of the Sazerac cocktail, which was originally made with Cognac.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.

Sazerac Straight Rye Reviews

Sazerac rye

This rye is ihmo is not the best neat however, paired with absinthe and/or peychauds in a whiskey cocktail and this whiskey absolutely shines.

On first sip, not for me.

It's not bad but it's not good. There's a strange aftertaste & it lacks the spiciness I look for in a rye whiskey. I'll probably make it through the bottle but I won't buy it again. It's too expensive for how average it is. Spend a bit more to get Michter's or save a few quid & get Jim Beam.

Rye not give it a try.

My first rye whisky and I am impressed. Takes the sweetness and easy drinking of a bourbon with some interesting flavours to make it just that bit more like a complex single malt. I'm getting spicy Murray mint, which sounds bad but it isn't.

A must buy. Great on its own but this is my go to for a Manhattan. Absolutely delicious and now on my second bottle. Makes a damn good Sazerac too, although might take me a while to get to the bottom of my new 70cl bottle of La Fee absinthe, given only the glass only needs a rinse!

Top notch

Excellent on it's own, with a mixer, in a cocktail... it's just a fantastic all rounder. I'm on my second bottle

Makes a Good Sazerac

Does what it says on the bottle. Perfect for a Sazerac cocktail, which jt absolutely is. My favourite cocktail in fact. Outside of that it comes out as average. But DAMN it makes a good Sazerac.

Don’t buy it. Because I don’t want to run out....

How can anybody say anything bad about this rye? It’s just awesome!
(I’m on my third dram right now ;-) For those low raters; just keep trying. You’ll develop some real taste sooner or later....

Excellent sipping rye!

I can assure you all that this product has NOT been discontinued! Email received from Buffalo Trace indicates production is ongoing and strong as ever. I will say that it is quite difficult to find. I purchased the only two bottles my favorite retailer received and that was the first shipment since Spring of 2016! Befriend a reputable retailer, be patient and cross your fingers. I very much enjoy it neat or with a single large distilled water ice cube----pure sipping pleasure.

Discontinued?! Realy?!

How so, discontinued.. Did they realy stop producing this?!

Great Value

Difficult to find outsuide of Louisiana but a Superior Rye whiskey in its price range. Not to be confused with the 18 yr. and Thomas H. Handy versions but nonetheless, a great rye and a great value. Though easy to enjoy neat, this is excellent in Manhattans and Sazerac cocktails! If you can find it, buy it!
