Thomas H. Handy Sazerac
Uncut & Unfiltered Straight Rye Whiskey
Any crispier and the glass would shatter: hard as a diamond rye, but oh! So much more of a rare and valuable gem!
Jim Murray's 2009 Whiskey Bible
Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey is named after the New Orleans bartender who first used rye whiskey in the Sazerac Cocktail, this uncut and unfiltered Straight Rye whiskey is bottled directly from the barrel, just as it was over a century ago. Full of rich flavors, this authentic American rye whiskey is a symbol of the timeless history of New Orleans and the legacy of Thomas H. Handy.
Mr. Handy bested big brother Bill Weller by a notch and was named the Second Finest Whiskey in the World by the Whisky Bible. The Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye is an uncut and unfiltered straight rye whisky complex and great under the nose, this 126.9 rye whisky cuts nicely with purified water and offers tastes of honey, cinnamon, and spice.
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.
