Thomas H Handy
American Whiskey ~ Rye
Produced at
Buffalo Trace Distillery

Martine Nouet

Floral and delicate. Freesia.Rose syrup. White pepper. Hint of jasmine tea. Orange blossom honey. Red currant jelly. A real delight.
Silky. Sweet at start but soon dry spices push it on the grippy side. But yet the fruit and spices find a good balance. Turkish delight. That rose note lingers elegantly.
Rose, rose, rose...
An unusual floral profile for a rye. But delightful. What a nose!

Rob Allanson

Some many layers it unwraps like a flower. Cracked pepper and a little clove. That dry dustiness is back. Some citrus notes.
The spices grip through a sweetness,but the layers of citrus and sweetness balance out well.
Lush and floral.
Manhattan time. A benchmark rye.
