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.
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
