The One and Only New Orleans Original. Sazerac Rye Whiskey symbolizes the tradition and history of New Orleans. Rye Whiskey dates back to the 1800’s, around the time when saloons, veiled as Coffee Houses, began lining the streets of New Orleans. It was at the Sazerac Coffee House on Royal Street where local patrons were served toddies made with Rye Whiskey and Peychaud’s Bitters. The libation became known as the “Sazerac” and America’s first branded cocktail was born. This is the whiskey that started it all.
Aromas of clove, vanilla, anise and pepper. Subtle notes of candied spices and citrus. The big finish is smooth with hints of licorice.
Go for it. A solid rye, always reliable, good for genuine New Orleans mixed drinks, but also a drinkable sipper.
Best Rye - IMO
My wife and I have tried dozens of Rye Whiskeys, from the no-names to the big names. This one tops them all for flavor and smoothness. We drink it neat or on the rocks. Excellent!
