Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey


Thomas handy RYE


Thomas Handy Rye For Sale:

“Named after the New Orleans bartender who first used rye whiskey in the Sazerac Cocktail, this uncut and unfiltered Straight Rye Whiskey is bottled directly from the barrel, just as it was over a century ago. Full of rich flavors, this authentic American rye whiskey is a symbol of the timeless history of New Orleans and the legacy of Thomas H. Handy.”

Thomas Handy Sazerac Rye, one of the five whiskeys from the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection and often called THH or Thomas Handy for short, is a small-batch rye whiskey that celebrates Thomas H. Handy, the founder of the Sazerac Company (which owns Buffalo Trace). You can read more about the company’s founding and Buffalo Trace’s letter detailing how THH was made. Each year’s release is a little different, and this 2018 edition comes from barrels aged no less than 6 years and 4 months at a potent 64.4% alcohol. While the rest of the line is 12-18 years old, an antique isn’t a misnomer because it can be used to indicate age or the past.

Since this is part of BTAC, I’d be remiss not to mention that Thomas Handy is super desired, highly allocated, and terribly expensive at anything besides the $100 MSRP. You could argue that it’s still very expensive at $100. The hype is insane, so let’s find out if Thomas Handy Rye comes close to meeting it in this Thomas Handy review.
