3. Thomas H Handy Sazerac Rye

 

Produced by Sazerac, Thomas H Handy Sazerac grabbed third place in the Whisky Bible 2019 with 97 out of 100 points. The expression is an uncut and unfiltered straight rye whiskey that was distilled in 2011. Bottled at 63.6% abv, the rye whiskey was released as part of Buffalo Trace’s 2017 Antique Collection last year.

Murray describes the “must-have” whiskey as having “trademark crisp rye notes” and understated notes of light cocoa and vanilla that “when it comes to balancing with the rye, work like a dream”.
