Never before have I experienced a rye with such depth. Worth of its title of Best American Whiskey 2009. I plan to buy two more bottles...one for now, and one to put away for a few years.

I've heard a lot of good things about the Sazerac range. Yet to be fortunate enough to lay my hands on one...

It's such a lovely rich colour this whiskey. Makes you want to dive right in :)

I've actually seen this on a local shelf. Would you recommend this over the Antique Collection Sazerac (which was also available).

I don't think I've had the current antique collection Sazerac. Both whiskeys are part of the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection. My impression is that the Sazerac bottlings are getting less interesting over time, while the Thomas Handy Sazerac is around its prime. Again, I've only had one lately, but I think this one is hard to beat. Definitely needs a little water, though.

Regarding the 2010 release of Thomas H Handy and Sazerac 18 yr old rye whiskeys compared: The Handy is extraordinary, while the Sazerac 18 is serviceable, but not at all in the same league with it this year. To my palate the 2010 Sazerac 18 is downright boring compared to the Handy.
