Excerpt: Sazerac Rye is an overall great whiskey, especially when you consider the retail price of this bottle. This rye is thick and smooth, and delivers plenty of sweet and spicy flavors that really fit together seamlessly.

This is a 6 year old, barely legal rye, coming to us from Buffalo Trace.
Pepper, caramel, butter and a nice spicy kick at the end
To me this is much much sweeter than a lot of other ryes, I get a TON of butter and sugar, with heavy vanilla seeping in before a nice rye finish. Despite its relative youth everything blends nicely into one another.
Medium, although also well blended. Theres that rye spice but it doesnt kick you in the face. The butter and vanilla are there also.
Ive been told this is somewhat hard to find and I totally understand why. For the price and the age, this is a great dram. I snagged it for just under $30 and its absolutely well worth every drop. To me, this blows Double Rye! out of the water for less on the sticker and Id buy it again in a heartbeat.
