Sazerac Rye 18 2009 Release

Country: USA

Region: Kentucky

Type: Rye

Bottler: Distiller

ABV: 45%

Score: 92 Points

Another whiskey in the 2009 Buffalo Trace Antique Collection series, this has a great rye bread aroma on the nose and a hint of old leather. The taste is tart and aromatic, slightly herbal, with notes of molasses and oak. Water makes it even smoother, and the finish is spicy and lingering.
