Description of the Item:
Sazerac, established in 17th century France, is the legendary international company encompassing over 400 extraordinary brands. Here, a collection of 7 of their finest and some hard-to-find Kentucky bourbons and rye.
Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon whiskey from the Franklin County award-winning and oldest continuously operating distillery.
Eagle Rare Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is masterfully crafted and carefully aged in charred new oak barrels for no less than ten years. The rareness of this bourbon is evident in its complex aroma and smooth, lingering taste.
Full Proof 1792: Named for the year Kentucky became a state. Bourbon insiders have long acknowledged that full proof bourbon has a distinguished and rich flavor. Bottled at its original 125-barrel entry proof, 1792 Full Proof Bourbon is exceptionally distinct and Jim Murray has named it World Whiskey of the Year.
Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch: Known as the father of the modern bourbon industry, Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor Jr. left an indelible mark. After the Civil War, he established the O.F.C. Distillery, now known as Buffalo Trace, where E.H. Taylor whiskies are made today. During his storied career, Taylor revolutionized the industry with methods still in use today like copper fermenters, column stills, and climate-controlled aging warehouses. Select specific barrels from the warehouse create the perfect blend of distinctive character that is like no other. This bourbon is a true sipping bourbon to honor the resolute legacy of E.H. Taylor Jr.
The one and only New Orleans original, Sazerac Rye symbolizes the culture and history of the Big Easy. In the 19th century, industrious farmers and distillers in the heartland of the United States barreled and shipped their rye whiskeys down the great Mississippi River to the bustling, growing city of New Orleans. These spicy and assertive spirits fueled the whiskey culture of New Orleans and established the first American cocktail, The Sazerac.
W. L. Weller is a brand of "wheated" bourbon whiskey. Like all bourbons, Weller is distilled from a mash composed of at least 51% corn. The secondary grain used for the Weller brand is wheat, whereas most bourbons use rye. The bourbon was named after William Larue Weller, who was a distiller in the early days of Kentucky. He was supposedly the first to produce straight bourbon using wheat instead of rye in 1849.
Weller Special Reserve Green Label: The Original Wheated Bourbon Whiskey features an exceptionally smooth taste, substituting wheat for rye grain. Bottled at 90 proof, this bourbon stands out with its burnt orange color. Its softer flavor notes make this bourbon great for sipping or making cocktails.
Weller Antique 107 Red Label: Old Weller Antique is bottled at 107 proof, offering a complex taste and bold finish. It's certainly a recognizable member of the Weller label, with its own unique characteristics to complement the high proof.
