    Re: \"New\" ryes - 6-yr old Sazerac

    I say California is the place it ought to be.
    So, please, load it on the truck and move it to Berkeley.
    Ledger's, that is,
    University Avenue...

    Hey! Why don't they just load up a case or so and send it down to headquarters in New Orleans for me, I'll pick up.

    ...But don't forget California, because then my thirst would still be unslaked. Composing lyrics is hard work.

    So, the release statement is out. Who else is a little disappointed by the "initial release" of only 1000 bottles. I wasn't looking forward to another specially numbered limited edition. Damnit I just wanted a regular bottle to drink. And I wanted everybody to be able to get it. Okay so I wasn't expecting wider distribution than BT but that still gets it wide enough that mail order is possible.

    But on the bright side, if it is to be a $20 "flagship" product then it should be at least as available as Buffalo Trace...which is to say not within a thousand miles of me (okay I guess that isn't such a great bright side from my viewpoint). That's is, unless, they pull the Jed Clampett that I waxed lyrically about earlier in this thread.

    Humor aside, doesn't it seem like BT held off of this release for some time? Perhaps they thought that a product they want to identify strongly with New Orleans should be associated with the rebirth of the city, not the city in crisis. Their ad copy talks of things that made New Orleans wonderful and unique and how Sazerac Rye strives to represent the true “Spirit of New Orleans.” I could see street musicians playing Dixieland on the streetcorner and locals at street-front coffeehouses sipping their Sazeracs, heads slightly bobbing. I also notice the line that "Sazerac is one of New Orleans oldest family owned, privately held companies." Not was, is, and that's why once again, I salute those classy people at Buffalo Trace.

    PS - And please bring Sazerac Rye to California

    Yes, it does seem like they held off for a while on this, though I first heard about it from Elmer about 2 years ago, so I've been getting antsy.

    Because of what happened in New Orleans, we held off introducing the Sazerac Rye. As a matter of fact, we held off so long our new 6 year old rye is actually 7 years old.

    Ken, first, a belated thanks for your note on what happens to whiskey that falls short of a full case where a barrel is bottled for a customer.

    My question now is, can we see a picture of the new Sazerac rye whiskey bottle? I believe no one has posted a picture of the bottle or label yet. The idea to adapt a late 1800's design is brilliant and I can't wait to see the item (and taste it).

    Best wishes with the launch.

    This morning the folks at Buffalo Trace told me that the 6 yr rye was bottled and out to the distributors a couple of weeks ago. They referred me to Binny's and Sam's Wines, but neither of them has it in stock yet. Can't wait.

    Just saw that the NH web site (http://www.state.nh.us/liquor/) is now listing Sazerac 6 YO (really 7 YO, as per Ken Weber) for $18.99, but none in stock yet. My experience is that they list items a few weeks or so before inventory actually gets to the state stores. Looks like another item on my "must buy" list and the price is good, too. Thanks, Buffalo Trace!
