A very good Rye at this price point. A nice combination of flavors and very drinkable.

Merek,
I have to say this is my favorite Rye. It has a sweet vanilla caramel/clove nose with the same taste and a bit of pepper that follows. It has a nice little rye spice at the end too! I highly recommend you try this on the rocks, or in an old fashioned! Sipping it neat works as well for me. Absolutely great!

Chris,
It’s not just that it’s good, it’s that it’s great for the price. It’s why it’s so hard to find. I bought it for Manhattan’s but it’s too good to mix.

Fabian,
Sazerac Rye is such a completely balanced and satisfying Rye whiskey. The Rye factor is not elevated. It is certainly present but not predominant allowing notes of pepper, spice, honey and a slight flintiness to predominate a smooth long finish. This is a staple and a competent one. Especially at its approachable price point.

Steve,
Aa excellent value for a smooth and tasty rye whiskey. Great straight up with an ice cube and a splash of water.

My favorite low-end Rye whiskey. Not too sweet, spice notes on the back end. Goes down smooth.

Elijah,
Great sipper. Huge value here. I have seen this Rye marked up as high as 60 dollars before showing its value of the price on Flaviar. Has a bit of a taste of black tea

Aaron,
As with almost everything that comes out of the Buffalo Trace distillery, it’s simply amazing. The Sazerac rye is a very smooth rye whisky. The nose is not harsh at all with orange and rye being the main two scents I detect. When it touches your tongue you immediately realize just how smooth it is, with almost no bite and very smooth flavors of Carmel and vanilla. The rye becomes apparent mostly in the finish and you are left wanting more.

Jessica,
So I'm a total beginner at drinking whiskey with appreciation rather than just slamming it back and getting drunk and not thinking twice if I tasted banana bread or pepper on the front or the back. As I'm building up my home bar, seemed like Sazerac Rye would make a great fit and it most definitely does. The bottle is stunning compared to most bottles in general. I like how it holds in my hand when pouring! My first reactions on taste however with two round ice cubes in a tumbler glass is that its not as bold and favorable as what I was expecting and hoping for. Nice/cool package, not much of a follow through on taste. Its very easy and smooth to drink and its appreciated. The price is dead on and happy its affordable because as soon as I learn how to mix drinks, this will come in handy I have no doubt. It screams old fashion like no other. I'll probably regret this review as I dive into more ryes and learn that most reviews calling this one of the best does happen to be one of the best. For now, I got others on my mind and thats ok. Still giving this a solid 8 though!

Mike,
Very good rye... simple and slightly sweet with the rye spice at beginning and on finish. For the money one of best values in rye whiskey. Make a great, great old fashioned.

Nice spicy yet surprisingly slightly sweet dram. Loved the rye boldness. Great price point. This was my first Rye Whiskey. Rittenhouse is next!
Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey
Tammi,
I absolutely love this! Best purchase I’ve made so far from Flaviar. Easy drinking neat or with a dash of ginger beer.
Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey
Keith,
A smooth rye with great flavor. Definitely one to keep in stock in the home bar assortment.

Very sweet , unique flavor profile. No harshness
Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey
Angel,
Not much big rye spice. Clean and well presented at 45% abv. Would prefer this in a cocktail.
Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey
Brendan,
Lacks the spice I’m looking for in a rye. Quite sweet and mellow.
Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey
Mike,
Really surprised by this one. Went into to it with low expectations and for the price and quality you just can't beat it. This tends to be priced gouged in my area if you can even find it. Thank you again Flaviar. Glad I got 2!

Robert,
Great nose, smooth finish with a pleasant Rye taste. The spice is there but give it a good sniff and Kentucky chew and the spice burn will subside leaving you with a nice peppery bite. Didn’t pick up on too much fruit. For me, this is much more of an earthy Rye, which is something I really enjoy. I’d give it a 10 if only the flavor didn’t fade as quickly as it does.
Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey
William,
Very nice flavor for the price, great in a Manhattan
Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey
Beau,
My ratings are not based on all the whiskey in the world, just the ones I've tried. This is one of two '10s' I've run across. It's a perfect rye, but also a low % rye all things considered.
Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey
Erik,
A decent budget-ish rye bottle.
Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey
Michael,
This is pretty good not even considering price. When you factor that in... well worth it. This is the second Rye I’ve received from Flaviar and I’ve been very happy with both. Good, smooth rye whiskey to enjoy over ice.
Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey
Spencer,
Enjoyable. Relatively complex. I get some floral notes.
Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey
Alex,
A new favorite! One of the best Ryes you’ll get for the money...not sure about pricing though because it’s $80 at my local liquor store but incredibly priced here! The pepper, rye, and spice dominate the profile, but the subtle honey, orange, and cinnamon compliment the hard edge of it. All considered, and Outstanding whisky and would recommend to anyone who wants to try!
Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey
William,
Apricot, orange, carmel, vanilla, carmel, black pepper, spice great in cocktails or neat
Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey
Paul,
It's a Rye, and it knows it. Spicy to the nose and the mouth. Swirling it around livens you and brings a small tear to your eye if you throw it back too soon. Exquisite with a single rock to mellow it (if only just a bit).
Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey
Conor,
Fantastic standard rye. Perfect for getting into the spicy side of whisky without breaking the bank. It isn't overpowering and not too strong but the hint of black licorice is just enough open up the nose and palate.

Christopher,
Excellent!

Jim,
