One of the 2 Rye's from the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection, this 18 year old is often overshadowed by the bourbons of the collection, Eagle Rare 17, William Larue Weller and George T. Stagg. While not as intense and complex as it's bourbon companions, it's still a damn fine whiskey and will be enjoyed by anyone lucky enough to come across a bottle of it.

Tasting Notes

"The nose finds rye, oak, orange, and pickle brine. A leathery palate of cinnamon, orange, crisp sugars and a rather oily mouthfeel. The finish is very, very long, with crisp sugar, clove, leather and tobacco."
