Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey has been produced in response to customer requests for more well-aged and barrel strength whiskey. This offering is comprised of barrels aged for over 6 years. We filled these barrels at 125 proof back in 2009, but after years of aging the whisky is now 126.9 proof.
The glass bottle chosen for Thomas H. Handy Sazerac is designed to showcase the whiskey’s dark and rich color. The back label provides a full product story and description. Every case has been hand bottled and labeled to ensure the highest quality finish.
Always highly regarded, the 2012 edition won World Whisky of the Year in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2013.
Powerful, lush, and boldly spicy. Flavors of toffee, fig cake, and candied fruit, followed by mint, cinnamon and clove. The finish ultimately reveals subtle notes of allspice, coconut and nutmeg. Long and warm.
