Sazerac 18 Year Old Rye Whiskey Review, Antique Collection Sazerac 18 Year Rye Wheat Whiskey Review

Whiskey: Sazerac 18 Year Rye Whiskey , 2011 Antique Collection Release

Distillery: Buffalo Trace Distillery, Frankfort, Kentucky

Age: 18 years

Proof: 90 Proof, 45% ABV

Color: Medium amber

Nose: With considerable age for a rye whiskey, this rye has a note between a vibrant fresh rye and a barrel aged . The aroma seems to waiver back and forth with multiple layers of spice.

Taste: A refined rye with decent complexity. Starts out fruit-laced and sour and builds up with tingly and lively characteristic. A playful quality complimented by backnotes of oak. Medium sweet and bing cherry on mid-palette. Soft mouthfeel.

Finish: Mellow with medium to long finish.
