Review: Thomas H. Handy Sazerac (2008 release)October 26th, 2008
Thomas H. Handy Sazerac, 63.75%, $65
Powerful, lush, and boldly spicy. A mouth-coating, invigorating rye whiskey with chewy toffee, fig cake, and candied fruit penetrated by thumping mint, warming cinnamon, and clove ultimately revealing more subtle notes of allspice, coconut and nutmeg. Long, delicious finish. An amazingly vibrant whiskey that lets you know you’re alive. The American whiskey equivalent of a young, cask-strength Islay single malt scotch or an Imperial IPA (India Pale Ale) beer.
