    Re: Sazerac

    I (finally...) received a bottle today and 'sampled' it (straight) a couple of minutes ago. Maybe my expectations were too high but the most noticable thing about this whiskey was its perfumy, powdery smell (one might also call it 'floral'...). On the other hand it's quite remarkable that its body is still 'ryish' while these perfumy notes are only present at the end.
    On the other hand I don't give too much on the first impression - my taste buds fooled me more than once. Expect my final judgement in a week or so.

    Ekki whenever I detect anything perfumey or flowery I put the snifter under my wife's nose. I don't tell her anything. I just wait. She will either identify a flower or say that there aren't any. She's always right and is my secret weapon in the nosing dept. of the Spencer household.

    As far as the Sazerac rye goes - it is the best rye that I have tasted to date.
    Please note that I have yet to taste the Van Winkle rye. I asked Julian to provide me with a bottle of everything he sells just so moments such as these would not occur. He seemed not to be listening.

    Ekki,

    We got our first taste of Sazerac during the special StraightBourbon tasting event at Buffalo Trace this past September. We didn't take notes as we were so very busy tasting bourbon after bourbon.

    The availability of the Sazerac rye is very limited. I think that there were only 300 cases bottled for total planetary consumption. It all depends on the number of barrels that meet the selection qualification standards. So you just never know how many bottles will ultimately be for sale.
