Sazerac Rye Reviews
Tasting Notes by Robin Laing, World Whiskies Awards 2012Fresh, 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.

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.
For 'round about the £20 mark, one of the best American whiskies you'll find if you ask me. I love it!! Okay I'm biased as I'm a huge rye fan, but this is way better than many. If you've got the cash, though, go for the van Winkle 13.
I just bought this from the shop while in london, i'm so glad i did, the smell is complex and does border on the side of acetone but the taste certainly makes up for it. A rush of sweet caramel hits you and you're left with an earthy brown sugar finish, it's a beautiful bottle as well, I will certainly buy again!
