Top reviews for Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey:

— For the price, there isn't anything better period. The only rye I like better at all is the Basil Hayden Dark Rye (blended with canadian rye and some port) but it's twice the price.

— Favorite.

— This stuff is pure gold. Simply amazing. Quite spicy, but wonderfully balanced with a pure cornucopia of spices like clove and vanilla. A medium-long finish adds to the velvety mouthfeel. My new favorite dram, and it has quickly become a staple in my repertoire. Perfection in a glass.

True form rye, pretty good tasting for $30 a bottle.

The anise flavor is a nice surprise. Starts out sweet then pepper and spicy settles in. Very smooth.
 
Howard

Very good Rye for the famous Sazerac Cocktail and the Vieux Carre. Decent price point.

Very enjoyable, nicely spiced! Great straight or as a Manhattan.
 
Michael
Michael,
Spicy and peppery vanilla with cloves. Fantastic. Medium finish, but very, very drinkable. This one will definitely have you coming back for more. Great value for the price.
 
Jordan

Fall in a glass- smooth and spicy, full of flavor. Very good neat- excels in a cocktail with some apple cider & cinnamon stick.

Very good value rye
 
Robert
Robert,
Sweet and delicious, I wish I saw it around more often. Then again, that might be dangerous.
 
Barry
Barry,
It's definitely a different flavor than the regular Whiskey I usually drink. I discovered the other day I like it in my coffee better than Maker's or Buffalo Trace and it goes well with cheddar and sour cream flavored chips.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Smooth and warm. Great neat, in a Manhattan or in namesake cocktail. One of my favorites for sipping on the deck.
 
Robyn
Robyn,
A Sazerac cocktail tastes the best with the true Sazerac Rye! Bottoms up!

Really nice rye.
 
Ronald
Ronald,
My Dad was a Rye drinker since his twenties. (Mostly mixed in simple Manhattan on the Rocks) On the recommendation of a local store, I picked-up a bottle of this stuff for him for Father's Day - He told me that this was "the best damned Rye that he'd ever had" He liked that it was smooth and complex, but still less sweet than Bourbon (which is WHY he was a "Rye man", and he was not just saying this because he was my Dad...) So, take it from an old-school, long-time Rye drinker - this one BELONGS in your "hooch cabinet"!

My favorite rye. Smooth, yet still has the spiciness of rye.

Great Rye at a great price.
 
Danton
Danton,
Love this! One of my all time go-to’s straight!!!
 
Scott
Scott,
Almost gave it 10 stars because of value. Very inexpensive bottle for the quality. As many have noted the balance on this is great. Very smooth. Can be enjoyed on its own.
 
Peter
Peter,
Loves this rye, very balanced sweetness and subtle vanilla notes. Good depth while somehow very drinkable so watch out.
 
PJ
PJ,
Very good in a Sazerac cocktail, no irony intended. Blends well with the Peychaud’s bitters. Long finish for a mid-price rye.
 
John
John,
Smooth and flavorful. I enjoyed in neat but when combined with a modest number of ice cubes, it was even better.
 
guest

I enjoyed the flavor. I use this to make Whiskey Sours now instead of Woodford Reserve.
 
Carter
Carter,
Big fan, little initial heat with a nice sweet finish
 
Rich

Great flavor. Not too expensive. Perfect rye for its namesake drink. Hard to get here in Ohio, but worth the effort when you can get a bottle.
 
Chadwick
Chadwick,
Favorite.
 
Steven
Steven,
Not sure if I'm a rye guy. The depth of flavor was great and no single thing was off putting, just not my cup of tea.

I really loved the pepper and anise. It goes well with cola, but I have been mostly drinking a dram with one ice cube.
