Whisky Reviews for Sazerac Straight Rye

18 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.29 points

  1. Issie did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    • Nose
      immediately very sweet and associations with gummy bears, in addition to some red fruits and also a ripe red apple, removed also a few herbs / grasses. Over time, even a slightly earthy note is added.
    • Taste
      pleasant tingling, neat sweetness and also strength. The 45% are great. Also in the mouth I find the red fruits and the apple again. The whiskey covers the whole mouth.
    • Finish
      Long. Wow so far I had only smokers so far.

  4. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A rye "a minimum": 51% of rye. Not so dry, due to the significant presence of corn (39%), with the nose of orange and varnish. With a little patience, a little chocolate and coffee. On the palate, nice spicy and very fruity attack behind. Slight solvated note common to bourbons. A quality and affordable rye that I would recommend to someone who has never tried a rye whiskey.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

    • Taste
      Oak, cinnamon, caramel, vanilla, cloves, bread, honey
    • Finish
      Unfortunately not very long

  7. Shane_IL scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    This was a very decent rye, not too complex and very spicy. I slightly prefer MGP ryes, but that’s a matter of personal taste, so don’t write this one off until you’ve tried it.

    Reviewed in my blog: https://iwriteaboutstuffilike.com/2016/06/14/sazerac-rye/
    • Nose
      Wine cake. Vanilla. Sandalwood. Rosewater. Bubblegum. Waxy fruits. Bitter oranges. Buttery candy. British style fudge. Woodspice.
    • Taste
      Wet cardboard left to dry in the sun. Bit of a sweet alcohol note, like a sweet rum. Vanilla. Salty toffee. Caramel pudding. Then a huge hit of salt along with pepper and cinnamon. Bit of bitter chocolate on the swallow.
    • Finish
      Long. Spicy, cinnamon and pepper. Bitter chocolate. Orange peel. Cardboard note comes back.

  9. jazzpianofingers did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Smells like a chalky [Guyanese] rum with Demerara sugar, aromatic shampoo!, lime, mint and luscious, honeyed fruity cough sweets. Considering that this is destined for blending in the main, its immediately and accessibly appealing.
    T: A slightly rough distillate which makes for a difficult opening delivery. The spirit dies down some to reveal fresh, chalky, chocolate [but still spirity] notes. Theres more oak sweetness with water but for me its still less sweet than desired at this stage.
    F: Sweeter caramel now with some oak showing before returning fresh and chalky - reminding me of Monkey Shoulder [Batch 27] WB from the palate to this point, albeit with less Speyside terrier. Its better with water.
    C: A well made rye with an interesting nose but best as a competent mixer, not so stella neat.
