    This bottle is one of the most incredible drinks I’ve ever had. I collect all types of whiskeys (bourbons, ryes and scotch, regardless of the country of origin). I’m now at a point where “coolness” or the hot conversation-starting bottle doesn’t matter as much. I like an interesting taste with a good story behind it. Thomas Handy Sazerac is HARD to find (most states have VERY low annual allocations for this, and the pre-buy market for this bottle is insanely intense), and worth the find. I’d recommend finding a bar that has it (bigger cities have a bar or two that will carry it), and paying the big buck (I’ve seen it for as low as twenty five dollars an ounce and as high as sixty an ounce) for a taste rather than buying a bottle outright. It’s a true sipper, bold and sweet with incredible toffee and caramel overtones…but the smooth kick this sazerac gives is what keeps me coming back. If you like sweet with a TON of character, this is for you. I personally like a really bold, kick you in the larynx type of dark liquor and somehow this thing still hits all my like buttons. If you’re looking for a comparison, there isn’t much of one out there.


Yes, whiskey is gluten-free, thanks to the distillation process used to make it. The Celiac Disease Foundation concluded that it can safely be considered gluten-free, though it’s still possible that some people with high gluten sensitivity or celiac disease could have a reaction to whiskeys created from certain grains.
Whiskey can include a large number of different distilled spirits made from fermented grain mash — usually cereal grains like rye, barley malt, wheat and corn. The drink undergoes aging in wooden containers, most often oak.
One of the reasons whiskey is so popular is that there’s no single way to enjoy it. There’s the purist route — straight and neat, no mixers, no ice — but what fun is being a purist? You can add water to it, which can enhance certain bottles’ flavors or you can add it with other ingredients to make delicious mixed drinks. It’s the foundation of the Manhattan, the Old Fashioned, the Whiskey Sour and many others.
