New from the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection (BTAC), the annual portfolio that sets the bar for others to follow... In 2017, it seems the rye whiskeys star, with the Sazerac 18 widely revered as one of the best examples money can buy. We have one bottle only of the highly praised Summer 2017 release available.

Other reviews... Brilliant! What else do you expect from a Sazerac 18?

...Ah, the pleasant aroma of warm rye rolls nails its opening, but so much more awaits. Balsam, peppercorn, almond butter, arrowroot pie crust, pine nuts, pumpkin pie, brown sugar, and savory toasted rye bread tingle, as slight hints of pear, tobacco, and citrus develop. Then, it’s earth, from sautéed mushrooms to soil. The long, strong finish presents baking spices. Lovely sipping rye!
