    Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey


    It's here, it's here! First, what appears to be a bit of good news: the 5 bottles I snagged today at the liquor store where I work are unnumbered -- meaning that the 1,000 numbered bottles are not the whole production run as I, at least, previously understood. So perhaps this won't be quite as hard a 'get' as originally regarded.
    What a lovely, old-style bottle! Buffalo Trace has shown yet again that taste is not just a gustatory function, but an aesthetic one, too. Kudos.
    First impressions (a more complete 'Tasting' note sometime soon): Thumbs up! To me, at least, this is much more complex than the 18yo Saz (which is not a real favorite of mine). The nose and palate are subtle and softly presented, which a spice forefront enveloping the rye-trademark garden-floral notes.
    The golden-straw color is reminiscent of the similarly-aged Bernheim wheat whiskey.
    If you see it, buy it!

    Wow, that is a gorgous bottle.

    Good news there. I'm glad that there is going to be more than just the 1,000 bottles to start off.

    I can't wait.

    Thanks for the speedy reply! I hope I'll be able to get this locally - not yet appearing on Binny's and Sam's websites, or on HiTimeWine, Mission, BeverageWarehouse...

    How much does it go for a bottle? does it say how old it is?

    No age statement, 90 proof. It was between $25-$26 in our store -- and you can always figure TN to be about 10% higher than other places (thank the monopolistic distributor -- it goes into his pockets ), even before the additional 9.25% sales tax.

    The back 'label' is almost all barcode, company info, and government warning. The only descriptive text on the entire bottles states: "This rye whiskey is the perfect choice to make the Sazerac Cocktail, America's First Cocktail."

    Still no sign of this in Lexington. I checked with the new LB this evening and Morgan told me they don't expect to receive any of it, though he said it was a remote possibility. I'll check with Thorughbred Liquors tomorrow.

    Nope, not yet. Went though 2 LB in Lex plus a couple smaller stores today. And hit 1 LB in Lou on my way out of town this morning and hit another small store when I got back. Still nothing and only 1 had even heard of it yet.

    Timothy,

    Did you check the Thoroughbred shop today? I'll save myself a trip if you did
