This multi-award winning Sazerac 18yo was part of the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection released in 2012. Impossible to find in Australia, these bottlings are as elusive as they are revered. They sell out immediately on release in America with demand so high that whiskey fans have been known to camp out the night before their release in hope of receiving a single allocation.
An interesting fact about the Sazerac 18yo is that Buffalo Trace have been using the same distillate to produce this expression since 2003, all originating from whisky that was vatted in 1985. The resulting Rye whisky was then relocated into stainless steel tanks to halt the ageing process by stopping the influence of wood maturation.
Only 28 barrels (that’s right folks only 28 barrels) were hand selected for this multi-award-winning Sazerac Straight Rye 2012 release with just a handful making it to Australian shores so add one to your collection or drinking stock.
