Sazerac 18 Year Old Rye / Fall 2006
Distilled at the George T. Stagg distillery and bottled in the 'Fall' of 2006.
Sazerac 18 year old is widely regarded as one of the best rye whiskies in the world. It is named after the Sazerac Coffee House, a bar owned by Sazerac company founder, Thomas H. Handy. The Sazerac Company bought what is now the Buffalo Trace distillery in 1992 (known as the George T. Stagg and then Ancient Age distillery until 1999).
With a vintage that must fall around the year 1988, it is likely that the rye whiskey used to bottle this was produced by the Schenley company at Bernheim distillery. Intended to be bottled as Cream of Kentucky Rye, when the time came there was insufficient demand, and the whiskey was left to age. This is the same stock that was blended through the Van Winke Family Reserve Rye when it was tanked at Buffalo Trace in 2004.
