Tasting Notes: Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye 2017

Vital Stats: 127.2 proof, six years old.

Appearance: Amber

Nose: It’s a little muted at first. I get mellow, dusky notes of sandalwood, curry spices, and dates, but it’s not very expressive. Water releases some vegetal notes as well as a bit more oak. 

Palate: The palate, like the nose, starts out earthy and mild, without much amplitude. At first, I’m disappointed. Then, a haunting line of sweetness starts to wind through, conjuring up melon, honey, cucumber, cinnamon, and black pepper. Soon after a bazaar-like spice quality emerges, with cumin, garam masala, ginger, and unsweetened baking chocolate.

Water reveals some brighter flashes of cherry and builds out the body, but it remains nuanced. A nice long, lingering finish leaves you with the warming sensation of chili, cumin, and clove.
