It's arrived! Last year's release of this incredible Rye was Jim Murray's 2010 World Whisky of the Year, quite an accolade. We couldn't wait to try the 2009 release of Sazerac 18, and we weren't let down! An amazing whiskey from Buffalo Trace! This was distilled in the Spring of 1985 from a selection of Minnesota Rye, Kentucky Corn and North Dakota Malted Barley. This sour mash rye came off the still at 135 proof, it was reduced to 125 proof before filling into a 53 gallon, new white oak barrel, which was built by Independent Stave and charred for 55 seconds. The 56.13% of the original whiskey was lost to the angel's share. This is a small batch rye, blended from 28 hand selected barrels.

A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
The Buffalo Trace Distillery was one of the few production facilities that was allowed to remain in operation during Prohibition for "medicinal purposes."
Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
