Named after the Sazerac Coffee House on Royal Street in New Orleans (and subsequently the cocktail), this rye is produced at the Buffalo Trace Distillery. It is aged from four to six years and formerly had an age statement of six years. Bottled at 90 proof. The rye category's growing popularity has made this bottling difficult to keep in stock.

Tasting Notes

"Nose shows dried herbs (Italian seasoning specific) with woody undertones and heat. High heat continues on the palate with fresh fruit, black pepper, and clove. The medium/long finish screams of Big Red gum and a hint of leather."
