Sazerac 18 Year Old Rye Whiskey 2014

SKU: 210000015634


The Nose: One of my favorite noses in all of whisk(e)y-dom. The Sazerac 18 has this ability to just ooze out of a glass and seemingly fill a room. Full, yet soft rye spice, fresh warm rye bread with a hint of ginger powder and mint, balanced by honeyed sweetness full of vanilla cream soda, brown sugar, and orange liqueur. A complex woodiness as well, both polished, old library oak, and damp oak boards, with dusty cinnamon and a subtle hint of soft clove.

The Palate: Much of the nose carries over to the palate, but the palate quickly becomes more rugged showing off those 18 years a little more aggressively. Burnt, nutty toffee and spiced orange rind join more sweetened vanilla. The rye is sharper and more pronounced than with the nose, even a touch astringent – cracked grain, ginger powder, white pepper. More complex oak, toasted this time, with more pepper, earthy cinnamon, and a slight dash of salt towards the end.

The Finish: Lengthy, peppery, a touch of honey, plenty of nice oaky tannins, and very mouthwatering.
