    Re: Sazerac Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey - Bottle

    I found a bottle of this yesterday at Binny's Express here on the South Side and snatched it up immediately. I've been looking for it for a while. Having just finished a rather intimate experience with the Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye (see my post under that heading), I was eager to compare the Sazerac. While the nose was spectacular (reminding me of summer winds in Provence, France, where herbs and citrus sea air waft everywhere), I thought the finish was a tad too woody. I was still mightily impressed, but compared to the VWFRR I didn't enjoy it as much. I wish I could try a younger Sazerac, maybe a 12 year or even younger. Overall this 18 year may be just "over the hill."

    My understanding is that there is a soon to be released 6yo Sazerac rye in the works, sometime this fall I believe.

    I'll be very happy if this is so. Probably hard for me to find (the 18 was), but it's certain to be worth it (the 18 was).

    I, too, thought the 18yo was way too woody (lovely nose, though, as doc points out) so I´m really looking forward to this younger expression.

    Hopefully it won´t be as much of a headache to track down as Stagg has proven to be for us non-Americans. Here´s hoping!
