The one and only New Orleans original. Sazerac Rye Whiskey symbolizes the tradition and history of New Orleans. Rye whiskey that dates back to the 1800s, around the time when saloons, veiled as coffee houses, began lining the streets of New Orleans. This is the whiskey that started it all. Aromas of clove, vanilla, anise and pepper. Subtle notes of candies, spices and citrus. The big finish is smooth with hints of licorice.
