Sazerac is a 6-year-old Rye Whiskey produced at Buffalo Trace Distillery. This is the rye whiskey that started the first branded cocktail, “The Sazerac.”
The One and Only New Orleans Original. Sazerac Rye Whiskey symbolizes the custom and history of New Orleans. Rye Whiskey that goes back to the 1800's, around the time when saloons, hidden as Coffee Houses, started coating the avenues of New Orleans. It was at the Sazerac Coffee House on Royal Street where neighborhood supporters were served beverages made with Rye Whiskey and Peychaud's Bitters. The drink ended up known as the "Sazerac" and America's initially marked mixed drink was conceived. This is the bourbon that began everything.
Aromas of clove, vanilla, anise, and pepper. Subtle notes of candies spices and citrus. The big finish is smooth with hints of licorice.

1½ ounces Sazerac Rye
¼ ounce Herbsaint
3 dashes Peychaud's Bitters
Produced by the Buffalo Trace distillery, this Rye is smooth with a little bite of Rye to let you know it's there but doesn't clobber the whiskey. Best value Rye whiskey out there in my opinion.
Great rye!! It was a great buy and I will buy it again!
The rye is great, hard to find in Kentucky and Ohio, but easy online. Dealing with Uptown has been great.
My order shipped very quickly and when delivered the bottles were securely packaged.
