2022 Second Finest Whisky in the World Jim Murray's Whisky Bible

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.

Powerful, lush, and boldly spicy. Flavors of toffee, fig cake, and candied fruit, followed by mint, cinnamon and clove. The finish ultimately reveals subtle notes of allspice, coconut and nutmeg. Long and warm.

Age: 6 years 4 months old at bottling.

Proof: 130.9 proof (65.45% ABV)

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Floral notes, anise, marmalade and meringue.

Palate: Baking spice with a burst of orange peel and subtle dark chocolate.

Finish: Long finish of cinnamon, praline and candied orange.

Batch Specific Reviews:

"Thomas H. Handy still holds its own as one of the best. Oak isn’t on display here, instead, a grounding base of raisin and tobacco serves to hold up loads of spice and warming heat that’s not surprising at a proof north of 130. While Thomas H. Handy’s mashbill isn’t disclosed, it’s likely just over the legal requirement to be classified as a rye, as sweet flavors often shine through in various ways - even if some come through under the guise of a hot candy note. The bubble gum accent is also worth pointing out, another sweeter element and not one you notice too often in a whiskey." - Nick Beiter, Breaking Bourbon
