2009 Sazerac Aged 18 Years Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey

Only 1 Bottle Available 04/29/16

The Sazerac 18 forms, together with the Eagle Rare 17, George T Stagg, William Larue Weller and Thomas H Handy, the so-called Buffalo Trace Antique Collection. Just like the Eagle Rare and contrary to the other three, it is bottled at a drinking strength of 45% ABV or 90 proof. Being a Rye Whiskey, rye is the prime ingredient.

The nose is rather floral at first. Violets and daffodils. Even some dandelion. Then some very dark bread emerges, as do honey and dark fruit. Caramelized apple. Cinnamon and a hint of black pepper. Cherry liqueur. Hint of butter. Rather soft.

It is both mildly oily and spicy on the palate. All kinds of pepper from the rye. Despite the rather modest ABV, it does pack quite a punch. Sweet on apples with some tobacco and leather in the mix. Then suddenly coffee and chicory. Mildly bitter towards the end.

The medium long finish offers a hint of coconut.

This one does not need water in my opinion, but what a lovely rye indeed. Taken as a whole, this Antique Collection is indeed a glorious one with nothing but top notch liquid.

This is an excellent rye drink and my definition of an ideal stimulant. (Posted on 10/25/2016)
