Sazerac 18 Year Old Rye is part of the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection. The 2018 release was the third release using the 'new' distillate used for Sazerac 18 Year Old, replacing the 'tanked' whiskey that was distilled in 1985. For 2018, 24 barrels were selected from the 2nd floor of Wearhouse K, 72.7% was loss to evaporation and it is estimated there were only 2,532 bottles released.
Using a mash bill recipe of Minnesota rye, Kentucky corn grade 1 and 2 and North Dakota malted barley, this straight rye whiskey is named after the infamous Sazerac coffee house in New Orleans. It played a major role in creating America's first cocktail, the Sazerac which dates back to the 1850s.
