2018 Sazerac Thomas Handy Straight Rye Whiskey Buffalo Trace Antique Collection

$625.00

Year after year this is the most under-appreciated of the BTAC releases, yet it always outperforms every other rye in its category. Fantastic aromas of butterscotch and spice balanced by a hint of orchard fruit. A mouthfeel that simply envelopes the palate and doesn't let go, it's one of the most opulent whiskeys we've had in a while. Long, lithe finish with accents of spice and mountain air. Delicious!

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.
