Sazerac Rye 18 Year B.T.A.C.
The gold standard in well-aged rye whiskey (with all due respect to some of the others out there) this is, again, a special offering this year. With candied apples, oak, and a touch of pine the aromatics are just the start here. A full-bodied palate with more grace than we've seen in some other old rye and showing notes of cloves, Christmas cake and a hint of brown sugar. Exceptional!
