Rittenhouse 100 Proof Bottling Note

A rye whiskey in the Pennsylvania style, this "carries a famous old Philadelphia name". Very tasty and aromatic.

First Rye Whiskey for me. Beautiful stuff!

It May Not Be The Most Complex Rye...

...but it is so tasty it is an extraordinary pleasure to drink. I refuse to be a snob about the fact that (in the US at least) it is a pretty cheap bottle to buy.

i'm not big on rye, but this stuff plays with tongue. then so smooth and light with the finish.

Nuff Said

My absolute favourite bourbon for the price mark. Stands distinct.

Bottled in Bond

This is one of the very few bonded whiskeys still produced. The flavor profile is in-your-face, with 50% ABV and all of the peppery spice one would expect from a predominately rye mash bill. Once you acquire a taste for it nothing else quite satisfies. Oh, and go ahead and mix it if you like. Makes a classic old fashioned.

For the bourbon drinker on a budget, its a good Rye. Just know this goes for $25 in the states, so its not meant to be a premium spirit. I don't usually mix my whiskey, but this might do well in a Manhattan. I think a much better choice would be to spend a little more and buy the Buffalo Trace Sazerac Rye instead.

Was hoping for more

This was my first try of a rye whiskey. I have to say, I was hoping for a little more. Nice sweet flavour, but not much depth to it.

I bought this as a cocktail ingredient but it's good enough to drink on it's own. A dash of water calms it down and brings out more of the flavour.

I found this hotter than most ryes, maybe just the 50% ABV factor. Perhaps that masked some the rye flavors I was expecting. It's a good rye, but I prefer others to it. Karl

Bourbony rye

Corn syrup and sharp rye. No real complexity there. Lots of flavor, without interplay between them. You can taste corn, you can taste rye. That's it.

Kentuckeys answer to Islay? not quite.........

A great whisky, sweet and spicy on the nose with vinilla, maple syrup, cloves and cinnamon, and in the mouth you get all of those flavours along with hints of green apple and the slightest suggestion of black pepper at the sides of the tongue, if you're not usually a rye whisky drinker (a catagory which I fall into) this is a great place to start, If you like BIG whiskies with demanding, powerful flavours like that of Islay malts, you'll enjoy rye whiskies, Rittenhouse rye 100 proof is a very complex yet not too overwhelming, this is a whisky that less experienced whisky drinkers will enjoy and yet has enough interesting qualities and depth that experienced drinkers will enjoy also, I will most certainly be buying another bottle of this soon and would recommend that malt drinkers should give it a try.

single malt man

Single malts, mostly Islay and Highland, are my usual drams but I have been tempted recently by Buffalo Trace, Woodford Reserve and now Rittenhouse 100%. This Rye whisky is a beauty - sweet on the nose and palate with plenty of vanilla and spice. Sip at full strength for a viscous mouth feel and glowing warmth.

a lovely sweet and firery whiskey with flavours reminiscent of maple syrup and christmas spice, tabacco and buttery leather. A wonderfully warm embrace in a glass.
