Sazerac is a terrific spicy rye from Buffalo Trace in a great old-time bottle. We understand this to be six years old. Great in a Manhattan, especially with Carpano's Antica Formula vermouth.Tasting Notes (2)
Tasting Notes by Robin Laing, World Whiskies Awards 2012
Fresh, bright and attractive - fields of grain, rye bread, cherries, lemons in a plastic bucket. Sweet and peppery with maple candy and root beer, then a woody dryness in the finish.
Tasting Notes by Mark Gillespie, World Whiskies Awards 2012
Caramel cola with a subtle rye note, allspice, leather, and a hint of oak. Smooth with cinnamon, vanilla, honey, and a hint of brown sugar. Long and smooth with a good balance of cinnamon, honey, and vanilla notes.
Chilled, brings out deep oak notes, at room temperature the sweeter notes shine through. I have used it to create an outstanding coarse mustard.
In my humble opinion, Sazerac is what rye whiskey should taste, smell, and feel like. Warm and rich with a spiced orange dipped in chocolate palate. An oily smooth mouth feel is followed by a long pepper finish. My comfort food in a glass....
My first ever Rye whiskey, and its is revelationary. Sweet yet spicy, with a menthol quality to the finish. This is a fantastic introduction to Rye, a very different yet extremely enjoyable alternative to Bourbon.The bottle is great, the whiskey is great, and having had friends try, they all bar none loved it.
Fabulous stuff. There is an immediate hit of banana when you open the bottle, and then...Nose: Vanilla, clove, anise and pepper. Taste: Candied spices and citrusFinish: Smooth, licorice and smoked pepper. This is a stunner.
It may well be great in a Manhattan, but I drink it straight! The WWA awarded Rittenhouse 100 best US whiskey this year. It's a nice rye but the Saz is loads better. I said above that it's one of the best American whiskies in the £20 range. I'll amend that: one of the best bargains in the whisk(e)y world.
