Whisky Reviews for Sazerac Straight Rye
20 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.26 points
- Interesting dram. Very silky and smooth yet it has a sometimes too overpowering damp earth taste to it to be very good to me.
A very sweet nose, all about marshmallows, grapes and strawberries as well as caramel with vanilla behind
In the mouth very smooth, all about damp earth and vanilla, spices like ginger, cloves and cinnamon at the very end, silky mouthfeel
Finishes on earth and ripe fruits sprinkled with spices.
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.
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.
Long. Wow so far I had only smokers so far.
- 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.
- A very good Rye, clear recommendation.
Caramel, citrus, red fruits, caramel, vanilla, some sourdough, honey,
Oak, cinnamon, caramel, vanilla, cloves, bread, honey
Unfortunately not very long
- 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.

Wine cake. Vanilla. Sandalwood. Rosewater. Bubblegum. Waxy fruits. Bitter oranges. Buttery candy. British style fudge. Woodspice.
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.
Long. Spicy, cinnamon and pepper. Bitter chocolate. Orange peel. Cardboard note comes back.
