Sazerac Rye 18 year old, 45%

Price: $70.00 Issue: Winter 2011 Reviewer: John Hansell

Very similar to last year's release. Well rounded, with a gently sweet foundation (toffee, vanilla taffy), pleasant spice (cinnamon, mocha, soft evergreen), date, glazed citrus, bramble, and a gentle finish for a rye. A classic ultra-aged rye whiskey.
