Member Reviews and Ratings of Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey
As with many of the other reviewers this is a very tasty rye... not a typical rye. Very smooth and great for the price. It's a hard find here in Nashville.
Great!! Not usually a rye fan. This was good and especially for the price! Great add to the home bar.
Good spice but not very complex
The best rye I’ve tasted. Truly makes a top notch sazarac!
This is an essential to any home bar. Many of my friends that don't like to sip whisky, love this. It's got a really drinkable flavor. I sip on this consistently. also makes for a great mixed drink.
I'm more into wheat than rye however this is certainly my favorite rye. Probably because it is incredibly smooth with great flavor at a great price. Always keep a couple in the cabinet.
It is a very good, crisp, Straight Rye Whiskey with a crisp birth; a bold life; that leads to a smooth & dry death with notes of flint, anise & orange-blossom honey.
EASY DRINKING AND BALANCED FOR A RYE.
A hot mess. will be great for cocktails. needs more time in the barrel to be smooth enough for my taste.
Don’t have a bottle, but got it neat at Big Whiskey’s in Spfld MO. As a novice rye drinker, really impressed. anise was the flavor I couldn’t put my finger on at first. I really enjoyed it.
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.
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.
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.
Fall in a glass- smooth and spicy, full of flavor. Very good neat- excels in a cocktail with some apple cider & cinnamon stick.
Used it to make Its namesake Outstanding
One of the best ryes I've ever tasted. This one is a must have at all times.
My go to rye. For the money hard to find a better rye whiskey
So TASTY! Highly recommend.
Very sweet and smooth for a Rye, excellent value when you can find it. This is the first whiskey my wife ordered neat so it must be good!!
Very good value rye
Sweet and delicious, I wish I saw it around more often. Then again, that might be dangerous.
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.
Smooth and warm. Great neat, in a Manhattan or in namesake cocktail. One of my favorites for sipping on the deck.
A Sazerac cocktail tastes the best with the true Sazerac Rye! Bottoms up!
Great rye whiskey, nice flavor profile. Easy to drink neat or on the rocks.
Really nice rye.
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"!
I really enjoy this rye. Great on the rocks and very smooth.
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.
My favorite rye. Smooth, yet still has the spiciness of rye.
Great Rye at a great price.
Love this! One of my all time go-to’s straight!!!
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.
Loves this rye, very balanced sweetness and subtle vanilla notes. Good depth while somehow very drinkable so watch out.
Very good in a Sazerac cocktail, no irony intended. Blends well with the Peychaud’s bitters. Long finish for a mid-price rye.
Smooth and flavorful. I enjoyed in neat but when combined with a modest number of ice cubes, it was even better.
I enjoyed the flavor. I use this to make Whiskey Sours now instead of Woodford Reserve.
Big fan, little initial heat with a nice sweet finish
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.
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.
Sazerac in my opinion is the perfect Rye Whiskey for an Old Fashioned. Smooth and Delicious
Sweet and smooth.
An old school rye that is always dependable, great for mixing or rocks.
Best served over ice; BT always delivers superb product.
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.
Very smooth over ice. This is now a staple in my home bar.
I really loved the pepper and anise. It goes well with cola, but I have been mostly drinking a dram with one ice cube.
Love it..nice spicy heat!!
Can't purchase from flaviar, live in AR to bad ???
Making a Sazerac cocktail with anything else never tastes right to me
