Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whiskey (700ml)

$84.99 Bottle
  • ABV 50%

Produced at the Heaven Hill distillery. The 50% Alc./Vol. Rittenhouse Rye is one of the best kept secrets in rye whiskey. Produced in the tradition of the classic Pennsylvania or Monongahela rye whiskies, Rittenhouse is now enjoying a renaissance and is a tribute to the classic ryes that were once the preeminent American whiskey style.

Tasting notes:
...Not quite as refined as the Sazerac Rye 6 year old, but it makes up for it in its sheer brute force. It is darker, deeper, and more rustic (but in a good way). Chewy toffee and dark molasses balance the spicy rye notes and soothe the alcohol heat. 50% Alc./Vol Rating: 87 points - www.maltadvocate.com (4th Quarter 2006 Issue-Vol. 15#4)

'A weighty guy.' 86 points. - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2008.

Other reviews...
Nose: Rich dried fruits. Chocolate. Sweet peppers. Palate: Clean, rich. Cocoa. Candied orange peels. Cinnamon. Nutmeg. Very spicy. Soothing. Finish: Lingering dry spiciness. Comment: A hundred American proof makes for a powerful whisky, but this is big and bold in flavour, too. I don’t remember it being such a sensuous whiskey. A reborn giant? I’ll look for it on Rittenhouse Square next time I’m in Philadelphia. Rating: 80 points  - Michael Jackson, www.whiskymag.com
