Sazerac Straight Rye Whisky takes its name from the New Orleans coffee house which was known as the home of the Sazerac cocktail. Without this exceptional whisky, the cocktail would be nowhere near as great. Aromas of vanilla, anise, pepper and clove are released but the flavour is subtler, with candied spice and sweet citrus taking over.
Tripled distilled Irish whisky blended with sweet honey and fresh herbs creates the undeniable flavour of aromatic, velvet smooth and intensely drinkable Irish Mist. Its sophisticated taste profile is rich in honey sweetness, dark spicy notes and an herbaceous warmth which ties it all together. The Irish whisky flavour provides a foundation for a wide range of other flavours to bloom creating an ultimately satisfying drink, wonderful on its own before or after a meal.
A classic clear corn whiskey, Buffalo Trace White Dog sour mash has a surprisingly deep and intense taste. Don’t let those clear hues fool you, this offering really packs a punch and is pungent with the notes you’d expect from a quality corn whiskey. Sweetness, sourness and of course a spicy depth all come through with the heavy spice of rye and barley bringing in that truly white hot heat. It ends with a mellower, warmer flavour as the spicy notes balance against the sweet.
The expert distillers at Bulleit offer us their sweet and fruity Rye offering, adding even more rye into the mix than their traditional bourbon. Bulleit Rye has a mashbill of 95% rye and just 5% malted barley and is produced in small batches, allowing the flavour to really bloom. The nose is awash with sweet cherries and classic vanilla and on the palate you’ll enjoy an intense heat that mellows into a mesh of peaches, cherries, cinnamon and orange zest. A smoky finish is just what’s needed to show a bourbon of true class.
