If you’re trigger finger’s been itching to put a new notch under your whisky tasting belt, then SADDLE UP COWBOY

You’re about to get a taste of one of America’s greatest contributions to world culture.

It’s rye whisky, and when it’s done right it’s like tasking a bite outta a big ole’ pumpernickel rye deli sandwich.

Gritty, spicy, with a bit of sweetness.

The Rittenhouse Rye is a great place to start if it’s your first go-around at the Rye Rodeo.

It’s a nice bargain and exceptionally smooth for a 100-proof rye.

Pretty nice for sipping, but it’s true talent is as a mixer if you’re serving up some Boulevardiers, Manhattan, or other rye-based cocktails behind the bar.


Rittenhouse Rye Tasting Notes

Nose:  Like a carpenter’s mill with notes of cherry, cinnamon, and spicy cola in the air
Palate: Spicy nutmeg with brown sugar rice pudding
Finish: Short but satisfying. Cloves with some more oak and feint chilies.

Score 82 /100
