Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye 2009 Release

Country: USA
Region: Kentucky
Type: Rye
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 64.5%
Score: 91 points

This is a young rye from the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection and is uncut and unfiltered. It’s dark gold, thick and oily, and the nose belies its youth, with a mild spiciness, cinnamon, and pipe tobacco. The taste is fiery and intense, with a strong pepperiness that fades to a sherry cask-like sweetness of dried figs. The finish is slightly woody.
