Thomas H. Handy Sazerac by Buffalo Trace
I noticed this in today's email from LeNell's:
First I've heard that. Sounds great!
Buffalo Trace Antique Collection in the fall will not only include Stagg, Eagle 17, and Weller, but will also introduce a rye called Thomas H. Handy Sazerac. This will be an uncut, unfiltered whiskey named in honor of the bartender attributed with first using rye in the Sazerac cocktail back in the late 1800's at the Sazerac Coffeehouse in New Orleans. Get on the waiting list now.
Also sounds like the end of the Sazerac 18.
I just tried Thomas H. Handy
Generally I am a Single Malt Scotch drinker. The Aberlour a'bunadh is my favorite. A local liquor store had the :bowdown: Thomas Handy Rye and let me try some. Let me say it is fantastic. It may have made me a rye drinker. It is very warm, with a lot of vanilla and caramel on the finish. If you can actually find some I would very highly recommend it.
Re: Thomas H. Handy Sazerac by Buffalo Trace
I was killing time at "The Cork" liquor store, while my girls were at ballet, browsing the bourbons. I remarked to the clerk that they didn't restock the AH Hirsch 16 and even removed the shelf label. (I had bought the last 2 bottles the week before). To console me he offered me a pour of Saz Rye which I found quite enjoyable at 10:30 am. and then a pour of Thomas H. Handy barrel proof at 132.7. My first thought was that he was trying to separtate the men from the boys at the sampling bar. It was nice to try it.
