The gold standard in well-aged rye whiskey (with all due respect to some of the others out there) this is, again, a special offering this year. With candied apples, oak, and a touch of pine the aromatics are just the start here. A full-bodied palate with more grace than we've seen in some other old rye and showing notes of cloves, Christmas cake and a hint of brown sugar. Exceptional!

This is highly allocated these days and we've got some. Moreover, we're willing to share - lucky you! This gem is the original one and only Sazerac rye whiskey whose history is entwined with that of New Orleans. Dating back to the 1800's (when saloons masqueraded as coffee houses began to pop up in New Orleans), the Sazerac Coffee House on Royal Street became the place where locals got their toddies with rye and Peychaud's bitters. The drink became known as the "Sazarac" for the under-cover booze-seeking customer, and the drink became America's first branded cocktail. Sip on a legend that's as lively as the day it was born and take your place in history.
