Sazerac 18 Year Old Rye / Fall 2005

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 George T. Stagg and then Ancient Age until 1999).

The earlier releases are believed to contain Cream of Kentucky rye distilled at Ancient Age by the Schenley company in the 1980s. When the time came for it to be bottled, lack of demand left it in barrels in the warehouse to age significantly longer than expected. This is the same whiskey blended through the Van Winkle Family Reserve in 2004, and used by Kentucky Bourbon Distillers for early Black Maple Hill and Michter's releases. All of these bottlings are incredible whiskey.
