Sazerac Rye 18 2011 Release

Country: USA

Region: Kentucky

Type: Rye

Bottler: Distiller

ABV: 45%

Score: 95 Points

This annual award-winning rye whiskey has a rich and spicy nose with notes of toasted rye bread, molasses, cinnamon, and a touch of smoke. The taste is intense with a strong cinnamon note that lingers well with good underlying sweetness from molasses and brown sugar notes. The finish is long, spicy, and smooth. An amazing whiskey!
