    Sazerac Rye

    Wonderful stuff. This was my first rye, and they say you never forget your first. I always have a bottle of this around. I love it! The nose has bubble gum, dried fruits and herbal notes... aniseed and mint maybe. The taste is rich and spicy, with caramel. The finish has more aniseed, rye and is mouth puckeringly good. I have said enough... I can't do this justice with my limted writing skills, so just go out and buy some.
